Perhaps you haven't bought a proper bike since watching a re-run of BMX bandits. Perhaps other commitments have meant your days of donning the lycra on those long weekend rides a la Giro d'Italia will have to wait a little. Or perhaps you need an excuse to buy an adult skateboard.
Thousands Carbon Black is for those who like to keep it simple and safe for any type of ride. A local nature ride with the kids? Or perhaps you are eeting up with friends down at the local or an office work day across town with the e-bike. The Carbon Black is for you.
Never staid nor boring the name Carbon Black whispers high tech but the design takes its cues from vintage motorcycle design, resulting in an attractive matt-black shell with white trim and outstanding safety features.
Carbon Black is also a reference to Thousand brand’s policy of offsetting 110 percent of all the carbon emissions producing in the making of their products. Thousand are a sustainable company whose pioneering policies have set off a chain reaction in the helmet world.
That’s a load off your mind. As is the dial-fit system, which allows you to make small, precise adjustments for maximum safety. Thousand has secured safety certification worldwide, including Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 2063:2008 (bike helmets) and ASTM 1492 (skateboarding and rollerskating). Even your fingers are covered, with a one-hand magnetic buckler fastener that’ll save you from pinches.

Looks aren’t everything, we know. But if they can help persuade people to protect themselves by looking cool, we’re on board. Thousand founder Gloria Hwang was inspired to offer casual riders of bikes, skateboards and scooters a safe and good-looking helmet option after a friend was tragically killed in a cycling accident without protection.
