Why we do what we do
Our Artist Series Collection was created in support of a few of the many individuals that have been overlooked during COVID-19. These individuals are self-employed and are facing challenges getting unemployment or small business loans. We have partnered with these artists to create a unique, limited edition collection with 100% of the profits going directly to the artists.
Kali Protectives came from a breakthrough in safety technology - Composite Fusion, a process that bonds the helmet shell and foam enabling us to use a thinner shell, creating a lighter stronger helmet. Lighter and stronger means a safe helmet with less mass attached to your head.
The Kali Story
Kali is focused on making the safest helmets on the market. Brad Waldron, founder, believes all helmets are too hard and the current testing is antiquated, so he has taken it upon himself to push the boundary of helmet technology. His goal is to build the safest helmets on the market at all price points. He knows his best helmets are yet to come, so he continues to cut open, crush and test helmets constantly. Whatever your discipline, Kali has you covered.
Meet the Artist
Fueled by coffee, muffins, and black licorice, Cori Dantini searches for inspiration in hopes of creating images that contain layers of meaning.
After earning a BFA in Painting from Washington State University and spending a few decades fiddling with brushes, pencils, markers, and most recently, her computer mouse, she has discovered an organic process of layers and language. Cori never begins a project with a message in mind. Rather, her materials and methods are what drive the meaning. It is this mysterious, reciprocal quality of art that intrigues her and makes her think of her works as visual poems.
Cori would love to dress like her paper ladies and explore the world in their skirts, buns, and neat little boots, but instead spends much of her time in her studio, covered in a mosaic of ink stains and glue dabs with bits of paper clinging to her slippers. It is at her studio in her hometown of Pullman, Washington that she continues to practice her trade among rolling wheat fields.
comprehensive protection strategy
When we design our helmets, we take into consideration all types of crash scenarios — from twisting and turning, to rotational and sideways, and especially the types of accidents that are indescribable. We account for impacts of all shapes and sizes. As a matter of fact, this is what keeps Kali Protectives founder, Brad Waldron, awake at night.
We realize there are a lot of “trends” and “buzzwords” saturating the bicycle industry and helmets are not immune to this manufacturing approach, but Kali has no interest in integrating technology into our helmets simply to create a marketing opportunity, follow a trend, or sticker our boxes with fancy terminology.
Our strategy is to constantly be rethinking, reworking, and testing to make sure our helmets keep your brain as safe as possible as well as stay up with the latest style trends. The goal is to create the safest helmets on the market, so you have peace of mind while out on your favorite roads, trails, and jumps.
We strive to keep pushing the envelope with the best designs and materials and to implement useful protection into all of our helmets regardless of their intended use or price-point.
lifetime crash replacement
You crash it. We replace it.
It’s that simple. We don’t do this as a marketing stunt or because we have lost our minds.
We do this because what we learn from crashed helmets informs everything we do. We have you return your crashed helmets so we can take them back into our lab to cut them open, measure them, and dissect them. We then use the information we gather from the unlucky few who test our helmets in ways we cannot recreate to build the next generation of Kali helmets.
Of course, we prefer you never have to use the Lifetime Crash Replacement policy and suggest you replace your Kali helmets at respectable intervals. Let us reiterate once again, please leave the testing to us.
