The Portola: Kaze is 3D printed and customized to your exact measurements.
Building on the first-generation Portola, the new Kaze delivers 17% better ventilation, a 10% reduction in weight, and a reimagined sweat management system, all whilst being 25% more impact resistant than the U.S. CPSC safety standards.
- 3D printing enables us to create a crumple zone that can compress almost 3x more than traditional helmets.
The KAV PolyCarbon Composite material naturally wicks heat 8x better than EPS foam
- Net Zero Emissions Manufacturing
- Made in the USA
Custom in Four Steps:
Step 1: Your custom helmet begins with a Fit Kit which you receive either after purchase of the Portola or you can order a complimentary one via the Fit Kit page on our site.
Step 2: We schedule a virtual one-on-one fit session to establish your custom helmet measurements. The virtual fit session itself takes about 15 minutes. During the session we’ll take 7 measurements.
Step 3: The next day, we'll ship you a mold of your head. The mold reflects the fit of the helmet and gives you a chance to make any adjustments if you need to.
Step 4: After we get your thumbs up, we’ll make your helmet. No pressure points or dials to adjust. The best, Made For You

30-Day: Full Refund Guarantee
At KAV we fit different. Our custom fit bike helmets are made-to-order for you. If after 30 days of receiving your 3D printed bike helmet it’s not the best fitting helmet you’ve ever experienced we will give a full refund.
100% Crash Replacement Program
Our crash replacement program has you covered. You receive a one-time 100% replacement of the same model during your entire five year warranty. Just send your helmet back to us so we can analyze it and make improvements if needed.
5 Year Warranty
We have the best warranty in the industry. Other brands offer one year limited coverage and say you need to replace a helmet every three years, not us! Every 3D printed bike helmet is covered by a five-year warranty from the date of purchase.
HEX HONEYCOMB STRUCTURE™
No MIPS Necessary:
3D printing enables us to create a crumple zone that can compress almost 3x more than traditional helmets.
This structure allows the helmet to shear when needed or compress when needed based on the impact eliminating the need for both MIPS or an extra layer.
Custom Fit & MADE for you
Every KAV helmet is made to order and begins with your seven unique measurements. Each helmet begins with a one-on-one fit session to take your exact measurements, and is 3D printed to order in Redwood City, California.
The whole process from order to delivery of your custom helmet takes as little as two weeks + shipping.
SAFETY: THIS IS OUR MISSION
Whereas most companies outsource all their testing, we have our own test lab and utilize a network of 3rd party test labs to verify the results.
Without the constraints of styrofoam, we use our KAV PolyCarbon Composite, Hex Honeycomb Structure, and fit pad system to holistically reduce linear and rotational impacts by 25% more than the U.S. CPSC safety standards.
