Your brain is your most valuable asset. Protect it!
The ProHAB Helmet Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to making bike helmets accessible for everyone.
We encourage safety and strive to break down any image barriers associated with the use of helmets (safety is sexy!). We love fun and we love being safe while having it. Our helmets are offered in exchange for a donation of any amount.
Wearing a helmet is a simple act that can prevent you, or others who love you, from experiencing the negative consequences of a traumatic brain injury as a result of a cycling accident. We always say, “you only get one brain; protect it”, and it’s true – you only get one brain.
Our aim is to get as many helmets on as many heads as we can while developing awareness about the use of helmets within our community.
We offer brand new helmets in exchange for a donation of any amount to ProHAB. All of the donation money we receive goes toward buying more helmets to keep the system going.
“… the vehicle was going approximately 40km/h, close to the speed I was at. It hit my bike and the bike smashed up into my legs and I went flying spinning a full cartwheel or two and landing flat on my mostly empty backpack, my helmet smashing into the road… … without a doubt had I not been wearing a helmet I would have died there that day…”
“…my lock rattled loose and got caught in my rear tire, causing a skid I couldn’t control and bailed really hard. I hit my head and my helmet saved me from a bad concussion, or worse…”
“…my rear tire slid on the metal expansion joint and I went down on my left side. My head hit the concrete and had I not been wearing a helmet I likely would have had a concussion…”
