Bridger Helmets Amps Up for Release of Adaptable Helmet

The founders of Bridger Helmets are no strangers to flying over their handlebars. In fact, the brothers split their time between R&D and exploring the outdoors. After one too many times being thrown into a tree, they decided to redesign helmets as we know them. They realized that, historically, helmets have been designed in a one size fits all way, rather than for their intended purpose. So they decided to design an adaptable helmet.

In a patented two piece design, the outer shell is removable to adjust to the scenario. With options for more ventilation in the summer or more insulation in the winter, the helmet will suit your needs. This design did not come easily; Bridger spent three years working through 523 prototypes before achieving their goals. They designed the helmet with safety in mind, using XRD foam which is comfortable and hardens on impact for protection. Even the buckle has been redesigned, replaced with a magnetic strap for easy use. The process was long and difficult, but Bridger is finally ready to release their adaptable helmet for direct-to-consumer sales.
