Bird, the electric motorized scooter company, offers free helmets to all active Bird riders via their mobile application. You must live in a current Bird market: Santa Monica, Venice, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Austin, and Washington, DC.

I downloaded the app and was able to claim a free helmet without ever using their service. Download the app and go to Main Menu > Safety > Get Free Helmet. I ordered the helmet on Tuesday and it arrived today. It's this model [helmetsrus.net].

While they say that you have to order the helmet from the app, I found that you can access the Shopify shop on the web: https://birdhelmets.myshopify.com/

Requesting the helmet reserves the right for them to give you the bird should you get injured.

For those that have never crashed on their skull, you can say whatever. I have no idea about the quality of this company, but what I can say is that it is very difficult to predict all the ways one can crash. I don't think any helmet company should be held accountable for injury, unless it's gross negligence. There are so many variables, impact speeds, impact trajectories. I buy only one brand, because it has saved my skull now three times. Every time, the helmet cracked right down the impact spot, but I only had a small headache (and I hit HARD), with no obvious concussion. I see people cycling, etc, without helmets, and quite honestly I think they are total morons, waiting for Darwin's theory to be verified.

Sounds fine. I never plan to use there service anyways....

EDIT:
I will also add that I would be shocked if they didn't already include language in the TOS that if you didn't use a helmet, you wavie the right to sue bird, and assume all responsibilities of any accident that might result in using there service.

Realize that by receiving the helmet, per the terms of agreement, you absolve your rights to file a lawsuit against Bird in the event of any injury.

Sue the rider. I'm sure bird will be very quick to throw the person under the bus

Bird is not a helmet company. They are a company that is trying to get an on demand e-scooter rental service started up.

And your point is? I'm half asleep, but it seems they are trying to add a level of safety to their service. It may to be protect them from liability, but it's OBVIOUS to wear head protection. Practically anything is better than nothing.
