A helmet, developed for you, the mountain explorer with high demands on safety, comfort and style, yet with minimal impact on our planet. Wrapped in a low profile design, this helmet has adjustable chin straps, detachable ear pads and a modular inner padding system, providing a snug fit. In numbers, Impact only creates a third of the carbon footprint of the typical alpine helmet and as little as 16% of a high-end carbon helmet, so you can wear it with pride.
When you’re ready to let go, just send your helmet back to us and and we will reward you with a 25 € discount on your next Lokatt helmet.
for showing interest in the world’s most sustainable helmet! We work really hard to get it done, so you can wear it on the mountain as soon as possible.

"Lokatt is challenging the old ways of the helmet industry with a great vision for sustainability. It's a great product with a greater cause."
We live to explore the mountains, we love to travel and to discover remote places. It is an amazing life, but let us be honest. Everything we do in order to reach the experiences we crave, inevitably has a negative impact on nature and our climate, leading to increased global warming. When you think about it, it is so stupid. When we do what we love, we destroy what we love. It is like the worst kind of relationship.
This insight has changed the way we eat, travel and consume, to minimize our negative impact on the climate. You probably also choose to travel by train instead of flying, eat less meat and try to repair your old gear and clothes instead of buying new stuff. However, there is one aspect in which none of us would compromise, safety.
Helmets today are designed to plastically deform under heavy impact, after which they are obsolete and you have to buy a new one. We think it is outrageous that we still, 2017, make such a disposable product from fossil-based materials.
It made us so frustrated that we couldn't find a helmet which was eco-friendly and fulfilled our requirements, so we decided to make our own. By combining the latest within bio-based material technology with our passion for design and engineering, we created Impact. A helmet which is made from renewable high-tech materials, which origins from plants, yet providing similar performance to the high-end alpine helmets we see on the market, regarding strength, weight and impact absorption.
Our name Lokatt is Swedish for the wild cat lynx, and just like us she enjoys deep forests and snowy steep mountains, while leaving barely traceable footprints...
Lokatt believes in sustainability and performance, without contradictions. We want to revolutionize the way hardware goods are manufactured and consumed within the ski and snowboard industry. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We are not only experimenting with new sustainable materials and manufacturing methods, but also exploring different recycling and circularity models in collaboration with leading experts on sustainability oriented innovation. This gives our product unique properties and design, and gives us full control over the production line so that we can improve quality and ensure that no harmful substances are used or leaked during the manufacturing.
Our protective shell is made of our own, inhouse developed biocomposite. The shock absorbing liner is made of BioFoam, produced in Europe. Together with Bluesign certified textiles this makes it the greenest helmet on the planet.
When it is time to replace your Lokatt Helmet, send it back to us so we can recycle every single part, and you will be rewarded with a 25€ discount on your next purchase. Together with you we can achieve full circularity.
Our helmets are proudly produced in Scandinavia, with a tradition of high quality and fine craftsmanship.
As a result, we are constantly moving away from petroleum-based resources, striving for a helmet that is made from 100% renewable materials, all of which are harvested above-ground.
Our vision is to contribute to a future where we and our children can continue to enjoy the lifestyle that we and so many others love, with snowy and cold winters, independent of petroleum-based materials. By buying our product you can be certain that you are making a green choice and a pro-environmental statement.
