I. Introducing a revolutionary new look in urban bike helmets
Our brand-new Geo is a first in urban bike helmet design. We sketched the helmet in collaboration with Dr. Holger Hoffmann, the founder of Berlin-based paper art company, Papertrophy. Its angular silhouette references the defining geometric forms of Papertrophy’s award-winning creations, producing an urban bike helmet that it is safe as it is design savvy.
The Geo’s In-Mold construction incorporates a ten hole ventilation system for ultimate climate control plus Dial-Fit system adjustability and removable sizing inserts that provide hassle-free customizable fit and comfort. A removable LED rear light and reflective detailing add to the GEO’s visibility on the road, making this the ultimate cool two-wheeler’s head protection for city riders.
Initiated by our late CEO and product developer Ruedi Herger, we had the idea of an angular helmet design in our heads for a while but couldn’t bring it to life on our own. So when we discovered Papertrophy’s creations, we immediately got in touch with Holger to collaborate in the creation of this unique looking helmet.
“In my opinion, the result is amazing!”
stated Ruedi after we received the first samples.
II. Minimalist polygonal structure creating a noble surface texture
Papertrophy was founded in Berlin, in 2015, by Dr. Holger Hoffmann and makes paper animal trophies, that are delivered as pre-cut and pre-folded kits. The buyer then glues them together to make their own deer, elephant or rhinos, staying true to the company motto: “don’t shoot them – glue them”. The products’ look is inspired by old-fashioned animal trophies, but transformed into timeless animal-friendly form, with their minimalist polygonal structure creating a noble surface texture.

Papertrophy has been awarded a host of international awards for its design, including the iFDesign Award 2016 and the German Design Award 2017.
And TSG are so excited to bring this design pedigree to the streets in the form of the Geo. This unique urban cycling helmet is certified to CE EN 1078 and CPSC specifications and is a key product in the 2022 summer collection.
It is available in solid black in XXS/XS, S/M, L/XL and XXL.
