Home / Our Story

We're avid bike riders and used to be guilty of not wearing helmets. Whether taking short trips to the market or riding on longer excursions, we simply didn't wear them because they were bulky, hot, and inconvenient to carry around. This all changed last spring when Christian was hit by a taxi, luckily limping away with only bumps and bruises. We knew we couldn't go on like this and decided to design and engineer a helmet that would actually suit our lifestyles. After endless research and development, we finally created the perfect commuter helmet, FEND.

Come along for the ride!
