ALL NEW, INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

STRONGER. LIGHTER. INCREASED PROTECTION.

  • Bern is bringing a limited edition, premium experience to our customers with the all-new Carbon Watts; taking our iconic Watts style, and upgrading it with a 100% Carbon Fiber shell. Carbon is a premium fiber material that is woven into a fabric, creating a material that is stronger, lighter, and longer lasting. Carbon is used as the solution for the highest quality performance material in aerospace, aircraft, auto and high performance sporting equipment.

 

  • Carbon fiber helmets are 8-10 times stronger than ABS plastic. The woven material distributes the force of an impact through a wider surface, resulting in a more even absorption for a higher level of protection. Additionally, the Carbon shell results in a 12% lighter helmet than the original Watts' ABS High Impact Plastic. The Bern Carbon Watts is handmade through a detailed 10-hour process, and is finished with a high quality UV gloss paint that resists scratches and protects from the sun.
