A good commuter helmet is a vital piece of your bike commuting kit. Cycling, while overall safe, does pose some hazards – and protecting your noggin is a top priority on your way to work. The only problem with your classic bike helmet? It’s not packable – and you must carry the dome-shaped piece of plastic around with you (or strap it to your bag) for the rest of the day. Unless it’s the 174 Hudson from Priority Bicycles, of course.

Weighing a mere 330 grams, it’s still CSPC Certified in the US & EN1078 Certified in the EU for total, assured safety. Hidden air vents ensure proper ventilation and comfort and you can fit it comfortably to your own head with the adjustable strap.
Available in like 4 stylish colors, the 174Hudson Stack is a baller helmet for commuting or any daily riding. No need to lock your helmet to your bike or swing it from your pack. Just pack and go.
