Made to measure in a way that nothing else measures up.
Our 3D printers fabricate your helmet within 50 micrometers. We follow that with a detailed hand finish to provide you a truly custom product.
You, but better - no sloppy gaps between you and the helmet, the result is an extension of you, only better, faster and stronger.
Everything from the fit to the materials are engineered to minimize linear and angular accelerations upon impact.
We tested our helmet everywhere so you don't have to
We started by revisiting all the assumptions that go into current designs. What happens if you're no longer limited by injection molded foam? Everything from impact management to cooling are radically improved for the better when you build what a cyclist wants, instead of what's easy to manufacture overseas.
We knew we could do better than EPS foam. After evaluating dozens of polymers based on strength, weight, resistance to environmental factors, durability and energy attenuation, we created a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that bests EPS foam in every dimension.
We built our own impact equipment to better understand all the ways we can protect athletes. KAV has roots in hockey, which has one of the highest rates of injury to come up with the H1 hockey helmet. Now we're building on what we learned to protect cyclists.
We transform your measurements into a KAV helmet with our very own 3D printers. Built from the ground up to enable precision within 50 microns.
The only sure way of getting things done right is doing them yourself. That's why every aspect of our helmet is designed, manufactured and supported right here in Redwood City, California.
Try out your helmet for 30 days and if you experience any discomfort, talk to us directly and we’ll make it right
Our helmets are engineered to dish out whatever you throw at them. Send us back the helmet so we can make them even better, and you'll get a new one.
Last thing you need to worry about after your crash is your helmet. Send us back the helmet that saved your life, and we'll ship a new one at 50% off.
Admittedly, I have a large head and helmets do not fit. The first try with KAV, the helmet was too big. Never had that experience. KAV fixed the problem and the second try was perfect! Great helmet!!
KAV and their customer service team are phenomenal. Helmet fits perfectly as you’d expect from a custom fit
KAV has been a true custom protection experience from start to finish really happy with my new hockey helmets. I wear it everyday and it fits perfect best helmet in my career
I have had a great experience with the custom helmet from KAV! The technology is unsurpassed and it is a very sharp looking design! I am very pleased with the fit and customer service. It is a very light helmet with personal sizing and great protection. I highly recommend this for athletes of all ages!
