GET TO KNOW US

In the next 10 years, we will reduce the annual number of motorcyclists killed in road accidents by at least 30%. This will save tens of thousands of lives each year.

CASTODIAN: CASCO + CUSTODIAN

The name CASTODIAN comes from a combination of two words: the Spanish word ‘Casco’, which means ‘Helmet’, merged with the English word ‘Custodian’, which stands for ‘Guardian’.

This initiative was born out of more than 25 years of knowledge, experience and – the most important – the staggering fact that the probably most vulnerable group of traffic participants has been running (often unaware) even more life-threatening risks than necessary in recent years and still is.

OUR MISSION

Every year, around 400,000 motorcyclists die on the roads worldwide: they represent 28% of the total number of fatal road traffic accident victims. And at least 75% of these are caused by head injuries!

We are going to change this. In fact, we have made it our mission.

In the next 10 years, we will reduce the annual number of motorcyclists killed in road accidents by at least 30%. By doing so, we will save tens of thousands of lives each year.

THE RIGHT KNOWLEDGE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

In at least 50% of the situations in which a motorcyclist sustained a head injury, the motorbike helmet was not (properly) used, or an unsafe helmet was used, simply because the helmet user did not have the right knowledge.

In other words: in these situations, (fatal) head injuries could possibly have been prevented if the motorcyclist had been aware of his / her incorrect use of a helmet or wearing an unsafe helmet, as well as of the enormous risks involved. Moreover, not wearing a helmet obviously entails even more and much greater risks, of which, unfortunately and incredibly enough, many are also not sufficiently aware.
We are going to change all of this too.

In addition to collecting and analysing data, we share our knowledge to improve safety for motorcyclists. We also use this platform to share our knowledge and insights with motorcyclists, governments, emergency services, insurance companies, as well as helmet and motorbike brands from around the world.

For free, as we believe that our life-saving knowledge and experience should be accessible to everybody.
