Daylan R Bruce 5.0 out of 5 stars It saved my life!
August 31, 2018 Color: Thousand Navy Size: Medium Verified Purchase
I wore this helmet riding my Onewheel. I took a nasty fall at 18 Miles per hour skinned up half my body and completely slammed my head into the asphalt. This is a testimony that the helmet works because I am a firm believer it save my life. After seeing the damage to helmet I was convinced that fall could have easily cracked my skull if I wasn’t wearing that helmet. Thank you.
advena 5.0 out of 5 starsI’m completely blown away by this helmet
September 28, 2016 Color: Carbon Black Size: Medium Verified Purchase
FYI, I rarely write reviews. But I felt a strong urge to spread the love about this product.
I commute/ride daily. I pretty much always wear a helmet and have done since I lived in NYC back in the ’90s. So I’ve owned *tons* of skate and “urban style” bike helmets over the years. Out of all of them my go-to helmet is a battle scarred Protec Ace Skate mainly because this helmet looks best on me… which means it’s the least MushroomHead™ of the lot. It’s also super comfortable.
Well this new thousand helmet just whooped the ProTec’s bum.
The thousand looks absolutely stunning, is crazy comfortable, comes with two sets of fit pads (which are super well constructed), and is the least MushroomHead™ CPSC helmet I’ve ever worn.
There’s also a U-lock hole for locking it to the bike. I prolly won’t use that ’till it gets scratched up a bit, but I will eventually start using it since I don’t generally carry my helmet around with me.
I suppose the only “downside” is the helmet is more expensive than most urban style helmets. But it’s a *premium* helmet with excellent fit and finish and I’m so so so willing to spend an extra few bucks for this.
Oh and to clarify (since many ppl rightfully question effusive reviews): I received no compensation for this review. I bought it with my own cash. I wasn’t contacted by this company nor do I have any relationship with them whatsoever. What I am is a very happy owner of a super nice premium helmet.
Tablecloth Guy 5.0 out of 5 starsExtraordinary product and customer service!
June 8, 2018 Color: Stay Gold Size: Medium Verified Purchase
Ok, stay with me on this: I ordered some Peet’s coffee kups and they were defective. I wrote to tell the company that they were exploding and after much back-and-forth, including photos, they essentially said, “well, yeah, that’s tough…have a nice day!” Just ugly and snide customer service. They lost my business and treated me with disdain..
So…for my wife’s birthday I buy her a new bike and order this cool gold Thousand Premium helmet. The helmet arrived: wrong size. Bummer! I let them know of the error and they immediately went into action. They emailed right away and overnighted me a new helmet of the right size, and they were generous with a price break, and even included a hand-written note with the new helmet, apologizing for the error, and included a cool little brass bike bell out as a way of further apologizing. Now THAT’S good and sincere and wise customer service. I didn’t expect it, and it didn’t cost them much, but they’ll make a lot more money from me and my friends, and maybe you too. Plus, the product is top notch. A company to reward, respect and patronize.
Stephen C. Blagg 5.0 out of 5 starsGreat helmet for touring
February 9, 2017 Color: Thousand Navy Size: Medium Verified Purchase
I bought this helmet specifically for multi-week touring. I was initially attracted by the little security pop-out that allows you to secure your helmet along with your bike (and that feature actually works better than I expected). What ultimately impressed me more was overall quality of the helmet, along with the comfort. It feels more substantial than the typical racing-style helmets. The exchangeable lining pads–along with having length adjusters on both straps– allowed me to fit the helmet precisely to my head. The Navy blue matte finish and the clean lines allow it to look more elegant than typical racing helmets, which look like toy Indy cars. I still like the MIPS safety technology in my road bike helmet, but when out there riding 6+ hours a day for extended periods, this helmet from Thousand is the one that I’ll go with.
Bob 2.0 out of 5 stars This Helmet is Not a Cure for Uber Dork Helmet Syndrome.
July 23, 2019 Color: Speedway Creme Size: Medium Verified Purchase
I thought this helmet would cure my Uber Dork Helmet Syndrome. I really fell in love with speedway creme, but in person it’s too feminine. The only way it’s stylish is if you wear it incorrectly and unsafely by letting the visor hang up for your hair. If you are a woman or man with a voluptuous pony mane, you MIGHT be able to fill in the side space to thus NOT look like a pin head, like I did. Was my sizing wrong? The company personally told me it looked correct. If you want to try different sizes, you’re in for an onerous return process with one, non-prime fast shipping option. Terrible.
This helmet was made for a petite fashionista woman who’s likely too precious to even bike or skateboard. If you are her, congratulations on your elite status. I honestly tried to be as cool as you.
Leonia 4.0 out of 5 starsFinally wearing a helmet
September 30, 2018 Color: Carbon Black Size: Small Verified Purchase
After over two decades of riding a bike helmet-free (and accident-free) 365 days/year, my parents finally convinced me to bite the bullet and start wearing one. They were looking at costlier options, but I remembered coming across this vegan-friendly, somewhat more affordable version a while back. I measured my head (needed a small) and placed my order. Started wearing the helmet as soon as it arrived: it looks rather nifty but ran a little small for my head, so I had to remove most of the pads inside except for the one touching the forehead. The contact of the velcro underneath felt too unpleasant to go without. The fit is now great and comfortable, and I feel confident and safer going on the road with some extra protection. I believe a heartfelt thank you to mom and dad is now mandatory!
Michael Green 5.0 out of 5 starsNice looking and thoughtfully designed
November 30, 2017 Color: Thousand Navy Size: Medium Verified Purchase
I bought the helmet because of the style. The thoughtfulness of design goes beyond style. It wasn’t clear that the magnetic catch on the strap would be good or not, but it secures nicely and is very easily engaged and disengaged. An interesting feature is the hole for a lock. That is secured with a magnet and is easy to remove and attach. My head size was right at the border between medium and large. I’m in agreement with other reviewers. If that case applies to you, order the medium. The large would have been much too big, even though I tend to get larger sizes of hats. The medium is perfect. Great value for the cost.
