It wasn’t long after batch one rolled off the production line in 1982 that bike and department stores across the country were a flurry of bright orange durable helmets. Everyone kid wanted one! With sales of over 1 million units, the Stackhat could take all the abuse a kid could possibly dish out! Made of a thick ABS shell, lined with dense polystyrene and a cloth liner, these helmets were unique, robust and packed a punch.
Unfortunately, the Stackhat has been retired but the brand continues to go from strength to strength featuring a more modern, sleek, designed helmet range. The Rosebank Stackhat will always be synonymous with Australian cycling fun, safety and a time when everything was good in the world.
