  • Magnetic buckle: for a one-hand fastener that’s pinch-free.
  • New Minimalistic designs are a stylish, and fresh alternative to traditional bulky, headgear
  • Bike helmet theft guarantee: If your helmet gets stolen while securely locked to your bike, Thousand will replace it.
  • 7 air vents & 3 cooling channels: provides optimum airflow
