Dennis Leedom founded Bern Unlimited Helmets in July 2004 when he put together a team of partners to help develop the vision he had of Bern Helmets. That vision was to give action sports enthusiasts one lid that was adaptable to all seasons and all non-motorized action sports. In September of 2005 Bern Helmets was launched at the Action Sport Retailer show and was later introduced to the world at the Snowboard Cross in Torino, Italy in 2006.
