Like Bern’s signature style, but looking for something a little more technical? Want a helmet that is equally at home in a paceline as it is on a spirited commute to work? The FL-1 Pave is the lid for you. With a style inspired by the original leather Tour de France helmets, the FL-1 Pave offers plenty of ventilation, ultra-lightweight, a unique look, and technical cutting-edge features such as a Boa 360 degree retention system and optional MIPS protection. The FL-1 Pave: style without compromise.
Full-featured, premium, 360° fit system to dial into the perfect secure fit.
Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. Designed to protect against rotational violence to the brain caused by rotational impacts.

MIPS Brain Protection System
Rotational motion can cause brain injuries. The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10-15 mm in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact.

I have used expensive helmets from other big name manufacturers (some cost five times more) but I love the FL-1 Pave. It’s lighter, it has a very low profile, and the boa fit system is solid. I use it for road and gravel riding, plus commuting. For the price it’s a “must buy!”
Thanks, Mikolaj! The FL-1 does stand for the "Feather Light One", we are glad to hear it lives up to the name! Stay Out There
My wife was previously borderline anti-helmet although when we met 25 years ago she wore her helmet regularly. I started wearing a helmet regularly a few years back. My wife recently confessed that she missed her old bell v-1 and said she really wished some made a current helmet that was not skate or tour de france style. I found the been fl-1 in whate and get her the medium. She was very excited about the the style of the helmet and has found it very light (i think it is one of the lightest helmets made). She also like the boa adjusted and how simple it is to get a great fit.
Love to hear you were able to convert her to rock Bern! Thanks for the great review. Stay Out There!
As someone who grew up without bike helmets and just recently rediscovered biking as a fun exercise - as weird as a helmet feels, this one is so light and airy it’s almost like without… forgetting to take it off after riding!
Kids love them because they're super lightweight, well ventilated and comfy. As a parent, I love them because of the added MIPS and at a great value!
