There are so many great features to the Thousands Chapter helmet that we are sure to leave something out, but here is our best effort to get them all in.

First off, it has a multi-directional impact system (MIPS) that allows the helmet to internally self-adjust to absorb more impact for greater protection. It has a terrific-looking low profile with a mini-visor to cut glare. It has a superior ventilation system for comfort on long and arduous rides. It has a clip-on, motion-activated tail light for added safety.

Plus, it has a hidden security portal that you can thread a U-lock through and, if your helmet is stolen while using this system, they’ll replace it for free.
