Our story, our roots.
We have summarized the origins and development of the CRATONI brand as a few milestones. Ready for a little time travel?
Racing at the limit and a responsible approach to risk were already ingrained in the DNA of the future CRATONI brand in the person of its founder Guenter Krauter in the 1970s. In 1976, at the age of 19, Guenter Krauter turned his passion into his profession. After making a reputation for himself in motorcycle racing as a teenager, he opened a motorbike shop in his parents’ garage together with his brother. A short time later, the Krauter brothers took over the distribution of Kawasaki’s motocross division.
The CRATONI Vigor is the world’s first cycling helmet that covers the complete range of single-track mobility. S-pedelec, e-bike or motorbike – the Vigor fulfils, in addition to the NTA 8776 for pedelecs, also the special standard for motorbike helmets, and that with an extremely low weight of only 710g. The Vigor thus wins the Eurobike Design Award.
