QUEENSBURY – A Warren County company has its sights on becoming the leading helmet manufacturer in the world.

Kirsh Helmets is changing the way we think of protecting our brains.

It all started when a long time rider and Lake George man went to a big bike rally in 2008, where out of 200,000 attending, one person was wearing a helmet. Jason Kirshon of Kirsh Helmets tells NewsChannel 13 that’s because traditional helmets were too big and uncomfortable.

After years of research and testing, they found a safer, more comfortable product. It all happens at a facility in Queensbury.

Warren County’s Economic Development Corporation calls Kirsh a game changer, and says they’re the kind of company that locates there because they like living there.
