As a long time cyclist, Founder Gloria Hwang was never a fan of wearing a helmet. Like many others today, she saw it as a bulky, “sci-fi” nuisance. But after the loss of a friend, she knew she needed to change the heavy, and awkward looking headgear into an innovative and most importantly safe helmet people want to wear. Thousand Helmets was born; a group of social entrepreneurs, design junkies, and storytellers who are obsessed with everything from value chains to colorways. Their mission is to benefit the public in multiple areas including; helping to curb the impact of bike accidents, promoting active and community living, and building quality gear without causing unnecessary harm to the planet.
