But what is vegan leather, anyway? Below, all of your questions about our vegan leather straps – answered.
WHAT IS VEGAN LEATHER?
Our vegan leather is a leather substitute made entirely of synthetic materials. It's naturally water resistant and is more breathable and durable than traditional leather or other lower-quality synthetic substitutes. Made with animals and the environment in mind, it's more eco-friendly than genuine leather and takes fewer resources to produce.
WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
Also known as vegetan micro, the vegan leather we use is made up of a combination of microfiber and polyurethane (PU) and is a higher-quality alternative to other synthetic materials.
WHY NOT USE A NYLON STRAP?
We're big fans of the distinctive heritage style of the 60s and 70s and wanted our helmets to stay true to that aesthetic while using eco-friendly materials. If you're looking for a Thousand helmet with a nylon strap, our monochromatic Stealth Black helmet features black nylon straps.
