Why we do what we do

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.


ldl

Low Density Layer

Simply put, LDL started out with the idea of putting a low density liner inside our helmets to suck up the energy from a low-g hit to the head. Your helmet is there to take the beating for you when you hit your head, hard. LDL is there to soften the bumps we get that are not near the forces that compress or damage the foam in your helmet. It turns out that Low-g hits, especially when received repeatedly, turn into serious concussion damage to your brain.

The data shows the majority of impacts from accidents are happening at much lower-g forces than the standards are testing for. And thus we are huge advocates for getting softer materials into our helmets and closer to your head. Our LDL reduces rotational impact forces up to 25%, and reduces low-g linear forces up to 30%.

We continue to test and experiment with materials and the design of LDL materials in our helmets and we won’t stop. Afterall, we are an engineering driven company whose focus is developing the next generation of industry leading safety technologies.

comprehensive protection strategy

When we are designing 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 which are indescribable. We take into consideration 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 in order to create a marketing opportunity, to follow a trend or as an opportunity to sticker our boxes with fancy terminology.

Our strategy is to constantly be rethinking, reworking and testing to make sure our helmets are not only staying up with the latest style trends, but so your brain is as safe as we possibly can. 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.

Our strategy is to keep pushing the envelope as to what the best designs and materials are and to implement as much 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 some marketing stunt or because we have lost our minds.

We do this because what we find out from these crashed helmets informs everything we do. We have you return your crashed helmets, so we can take them back into our lab, cut them open, measure them, dissect them and use the information we gather from the unlucky few who do indeed test our helmets in ways we could not recreate in a lab and we use this information to build the next generation of Kali helmets. We prefer you never have to use the Lifetime Crash Replacement policy and we suggest you replace your Kali helmets at respectable intervals. Let us just reiterate once again, please leave the testing to us.
