Before Christmas, we received confirmation our helmets pass all required details needed to proceed with the official production run. Our last production tools arrive at the end of Jan. After that we need approximately 4 weeks of finalising the quality gates we need to make the helmet, achieve the final accreditation and we can then start shipping.
So our plan is for this to happen in March.
Why was the home straight so long?
Since crowdfunding successfully completed, we’ve been geared on bringing Headkayse into reality. Yet throughout this time our estimated delivery dates kept moving back.
The design to CAD to tooling to prototype to testing cycle is about 3 months. If we find an issue and we need to change the tools, we start again. For 3 years we have been constantly cycling through this process whilst addressing all the issues of making a robust helmet that fits in your bag that works at -20 and +50C.
The end product has evolved, much more serious than it’s early predecessor. We are confident the Headkayse One will rightly host the position of the “Tank” of the cycle helmet industry!
Once again thank you so much for your patience and support!
With very best regards,
The team at Headkayse
