Riding a bike is sustainable. Why aren't bike helmets? Burner Helmet uses sustainable materials, takes harmful plastic out of the oceans - and looks good! We're doing our part to protect nature. Elegant design and high-quality materials - and resource-saving at the same time.
Elegant design and high-quality materials - plus resource-efficient.
For sustainable ease - our helmets weigh only just under 200 g and thus significantly less than the competition. We use recycled materials and with every helmet sold we clean the oceans from harmful plastic
How did you come up with your idea?
After an accident and subsequent walk through the relevant bike stores on my search for a bike helmet, I noticed that the range of sustainable helmets is non-existent - and decided to fill this gap in the market.
What are you studying/working or what have you studied?
I studied economics at the University of Cologne, among other places, and then worked for banks, management consultancies and in the commodities industry. A solid preparation for entrepreneurship, I would say.
