Our philosophy has a lot to do with sports. Striving for perfection is the basis for success and the driving force behind this is passion – regarding sports as well as the rest of life.
Already in 1974, Bernhard Köthe, owner of Careflon, began racing on- and off-road . In 1986 he turned his passion into a career and gained extensive experience through his work in international racing teams and helmet manufacturers such as Römer, Levior and Roof.
In 1996 he founded the company Careflon and in 2003 Careflon took over the import of the French helmet brand Roof for Germany and Austria. The representations for clothing manufacturers Helston, Furygan and Skeed followed soon.
In 2014, Careflon launched the development of the first prototypes of off-road helmets such as the YX-7 under its own label.
In 2016, after two years of testing every single component of the helmets, the CX models were presented. The top priority for the development was significant weight reduction and safety. Through the development of new production techniques and the consistent adherence to these priorities down to the smallest detail, we have succeeded in presenting one of the lightest helmets on the worldwide market.
