Thousand, a Los Angeles-based urban cycling brand that makes vintage-inspired and innovatively designed helmets and accessories, has teamed up with Poketo to release the Thousand x Poketo Collection, a collaboration featuring three limited edition design-conscious helmets. Born from shared values of art, design and personal expression, the collection helps elevate your personal style and empowers you to connect with your community through urban city riding.

The Thousand x Poketo helmets feature Poketo’s uniquely recognizable patterns on Thousand’s vintage-inspired and thoughtfully designed helmets.

Helmet Features:

  • three sleek designs and colorways
  • vegan leather straps
  • magnetic buckle
  • low key ventilation
  • Thousands signature feature, PopLock

Helmets retail for $95 and are available in three limited edition colorways: Color Blocks, Coral Reef, and Memphis Movement.

Color Blocks – Reminiscent of Ellsworth Kelly and his colorful, abstract shapes, Color Blocks lets you channel your inner abstract artist.

Coral Reef – With its bright and light pastel colors, Coral Reef features a nebulous pattern that reminds of the ebb and flow of the oceans and the colorful life within them.

Memphis Movement – With playful, squiggly shapes, this pattern reminds us of the fun and vibrant designs of the Memphis group – hence this helmet’s name.

Thousand Helmets:

“Our offices used to be based down the street from each other, and we used to walk into Poketo’s Little Tokyo store for design inspiration,” said Gloria Hwang, founder of Thousand. “So when we were looking to release our first pattern helmet, we couldn’t think of a local brand with more iconic pattern-work than Poketo. We partnered with Poketo because of our similar product design values. It all comes down to simplicity and quality.”

(Christoph Bayer) SRAM AXS – 13 Good Reasons Why Electronic Components on Bikes Are the Future | The Slow Death of ‘Buy It For Life’

We see the bike media et. al. falling over themselves to encourage a public dependence on component electronics. And both ebikes and component electronics have an intrinsic designed obsolescence, by virtue of these systems having a limited number of battery cycles. There won’t be ‘vintage’ drivetrains in 20 years as none of the batteries will be usable. I have a birthday coming up, maybe I’m being overly nostalgic to consider this.
