Bern Helmets announced it collaborated with GRLSWIRL to create a skate helmet. GRLSWIRL will use Bern’s Macon 2.0 helmet, which blends its DNA with Bern’s low-profile design and technology.
The helmet is offered in a matte cream shell with retro-inspired stripes, matching lay-flat straps and 12 vents in small, medium, and large. It has the latest comfort and safety ratings that Bern has developed over the last decade.
“GRLSWIRL’s mission is compatible with ours-helping enthusiasts ‘Stay Out There’ and enjoy the outdoors,” said Dennis Leedom, CEO and founder, Bern. “GRLSWIRL is committed to making skate accessible, approachable and fun, which complements our vision to help protect skaters with head protection designed and engineered to connect skaters with the optimum balance of protection, comfort and style. We applaud GRLSWIRL for taking the leadership position promoting helmets for skateboarding and look forward to helping the GRLSWIRL network ‘Stay Out There’ with confidence.”
Bern’s Macon 2.0 is 15 percent lighter than Bern’s original Macon helmet and uses an EZ fit system with a lightweight ribbed liner construction. Performance tested and certified to meet U.S. CPSC helmet safety standards. The Macon 2.0 includes impact and fit testing in various environmental conditions to mimic real-world use and storage established by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Condition and E.U. version EN 1078.
“We wanted to give skate devotees a stylish helmet that enables them to express their personality while providing best-in-class safety,” said GRLSWIRL Founder Lucy Osinski. “Bern’s Macon 2.0 not only hits the sweet spot resonating with our brand but also appeals to those new to the world of skate. We love the collaborative spirit.”
