    Great for my giant head

    This helmet looks cool, and the size L fits great (I'm a 7-5/8 or XXL hat size). The magnetic cutout for locking it to your bike is an awesome feature as well.

    Thanks for sharing Matt -we're thrilled you're enjoying your helmet. -Ryan Zagata

    My new favorite helmet

    This helmet fits comfortably on the head, and the magnetic strap is a feature that I wish more helmets would have. I use this helmet to ride my Boosted Rev. One day the inevitable happened, and I fell off. Luckily I was wearing my helmet and I suffered little to no damages. I’m glad Brooklyn Bicycle Co. sells this helmet, and when the time comes for me to buy a replacement I will definitely be back. Thank You guys.

    Thanks for sharing Albin. We're glad the helmet performed as expected. We're also huge fans of the Thousand Helmets as well. -Ryan Zagata

    First helmet

    I bought this helmet along with my first bicycle from Brooklyn Bicycle company and i love it! It's sleek, feels stylish and is not too bulky. I love that i can lock it in with my bike and that it also covers my eyes from direct sunlight if i'm not wearing sunglasses during a day ride. I would highly recommend this!

    Thanks Fatima. We are so thrilled that you're enjoying your helmet. Thousand Helmets are one of our favorite brands. -Ryan Zagata

    Cutest, best of 4 of my helmets!

    Ok it is very cute. But it is also easy to get on and off, fast. Which I appreciate, and it feels more solid than my other brands. Biking in Brooklyn you need a solid helmet.

    Thanks so much for sharing Kristen. We are HUGE fans of Thousand helmets as well. -Ryan Zagata

    A Helmet You Want to Wear

    For years I could not find a helmet that looked normal or respectable on me. This one far exceeds my expectations. It's not just normal-looking but actually good-looking, both on its own and when worn! Amazing. Great to be able to ride safely at long last.

    Thanks for sharing Desma. We LOVE Thousand helmets as well, for the exact reasons you suggest. -Ryan Zagata

    What Are the Differences Between the Franklin and Willow Step-through Models?

    Looking at the Franklin and Willow, but not quite sure how the models compare? No worries – we get this question a lot, so we’ve put together a quick rundown on what sets these models apart!

     

    #TLDR (AKA Too Long Didn't Read)? Here's a Quick Summary:

     SIMILARITIES DIFFERENCES
    FRAME GEOMETRY HANDLEBARS
    COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD SADDLE
    3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING GRIPS
    KICKSTAND INCLUDED TIRE COLOR
    REAR CARRIER
    CHAIN COATING
    7-SPEED GEARING
    FRAME MATERIALS

     

     

    1. HANDLEBARS

    This is probably the most notable difference between our step-through models. With the Willow featuring our Swept-Back Handlebars. This means a much more upright (European-style) riding position (think sitting in a chair) that is well suited for leisurely riding.

    The Franklin models feature our Relaxed Ride Handlebars, which are slightly more aggressive and ideal for both commuting and leisurely weekend rides.

     

    2. TIRES

    The Willow comes with cream tires, whereas the Franklin sports black tires. Do note that regardless of color, all our tires offer an added layer of puncture resistance.

     

    3. ACCESSORIES

    The Willow is our premium model and includes a rear carrier, as well as an upgraded sprung saddle and grip set from Selle Royal’s Royalgel™ line.

    The Franklin features Selle Royal Vegan Leather saddle and grips. Please note that this bike does not come with a rear carrier. If you would like to purchase a rear carrier for this model, you will need a 26” carrier for the S/M Franklin and a 700C carrier for the Large Franklin model.

    Both models come with color matched fenders and chainguard, as well as a kickstand.

     

    4. RUST-PROHIBITIVE COATING & GEARING

    As our signature model, the Willow has a few additional premium features including a rust-prohibitive coating on the chain and internal gearing resulting in less maintenance and more riding.

    The Franklin 3 model includes internal gearing (just like the Willow), whereas the Franklin 7 has an external 7-Speed derailleur.

     

    5. FRAME MATERIALS

    On a more technical note – the geometry on both frames is identical, however the Franklin and Willow models are made from different materials. Are you currently thinking “WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BIKES!!”? Do not fret – we totally get it! Take a breath and read on…

    The Willow frame is made with double-butted 4130 Chromoly Steel. We use a stronger grade of steel, which allows us to use thinner tubing resulting in a lighter frame.

    The Franklin frame is crafted with specially engineered high-tensile steel. What does this mean? We are able to offer a similar bike of a more moderate price point. Our Franklin model is the most economical step-through model in our portfolio of bikes (as well as a team favorite)!

    Still have questions on sizing (or anything else)? Email us or schedule a concierge call with our team. We’d love to help!

     

    Don’t forget: All of our bikes include Free Shipping & Professional Assembly.
