What experts liked
As far as safety is concerned, you won’t have to worry about wearing this helmet. It actually managed to exceed CE and CPSC standards. This means it’s marked as safe in America for both bike riding and on skateboards. It is even safe to use while high speed riding on an electric powered bike.
- Byways
The rounded design protects all of your head without cutting off your hearing. Then the adjustable chin strap works to keep the helmet secure as you ride.
- Buy The 10
Christina Torres, founder of City Girl Rides, says she has been “obsessing over Thousand bike helmets for their retro look, functionality, and sustainability practices.”
- New York Mag
Riders really love the look of it.
- New York Times Wirecutter
This helmet is very compact and lightweight at 410g (S), 450g (M) or 490g (L). Moreover, it is made of high quality materials for maximum durability and support.
- TheBestSpec
Anti-theft guarantee.
- Bicycle Guider
Each Thousand helmet is designed with a magnetic pop-out section (hidden behind the logo mark) allowing you to use a U-lock or chain to lock your helmet. As an added bonus, the Thousand company also provides a helmet theft guarantee. We found that the pop-out section makes it super easy to lock the helmet with a U-lock.
- Gear Mashers
The padding is soft and fits really well.
- Bikes Haven
The chin strap is constructed from imitation “vegan” leather that was made without harming any animals, and the buckle is magnetic to make it easy to lock with a single hand.
- Rydoze
It's smooth and sleek, but also manages to be rugged-looking.
- Biker and Bicycle
What experts didn't like
We didn’t test it because it didn’t meet our criteria for adequate ventilation.
- New York Times Wirecutter
One thing they should improve is the size so children can wear these helmets too– I think that all the kids should wear helmets! Please Thousand, do it!
- Bicycle Guider
The bigger option can be quite cumbersome on the head.
- Bikes Haven
One of the more expensive commuting helmets you can find.
- Rydoze
