Since 1938, our French family business has been designing and producing protective accessories for all sports/outdoor activities, whatever the season.

The brand  - Cairn Sport

The fruit of a French family adventure that began in 1938, Cairn has a long history of expertise in the development of protective equipment.


Focused on people and listening to their needs, the brand draws its inspiration from the various sports it undertakes, from design to technical production, with the constant aim of innovation and comfort.


A brand on a human scale, CAIRN benefits from the support of the 2RIDE group (SHARK, NOLAN, BERING, SEGURA, TROY LEE DESIGNS, CASCO) to which it belongs, a leader in motorbike protection for over 25 years.


1938 - Cairn Sport


CAIRN is a Lyon-based family business with a long tradition. From 1938, in his workshops in the Croix-Rousse, Albert Baudet made gloves and clothing that he wanted to be warm, comfortable and protective.


Meticulous and passionate, he acquired the know-how that enabled him to rapidly extend his reputation as far as the Alps.

1990 - Cairn Sport


In the early 90s, an expedition to Nepal was a revelation. Faced with Dhaulagiri, in the demanding environment of the very highest mountains, passion alone was no longer enough.


In extreme conditions, performance and safety depend on equipment that is perfectly adapted to the needs of the sportsperson. CAIRN was born out of this desire to push back the limits, while staying safe.

1994 - Cairn Sport


With its heritage and adventures behind it, CAIRN first turned its attention to the world of skiing.


Designed by an expert team with a passion for outdoor sports, our ski helmets and goggles combine performance and protection, to make every outing in the mountains a special moment, and every feat a possibility.

2014 - Cairn Sport


To ensure that everyone has the right protection, our developers are applying their product expertise to complementary ranges. CAIRN is launching its first collections of ski gloves, hats, accessories and goggles.

2018 - Cairn Sport


A leader in winter sports protection, CAIRN is expanding its range with the launch of a complete collection of helmets and accessories for cycling.


The brand is applying its recognised expertise in the mountain world to a wide range of uses for bicycles, for sport, leisure and urban mobility.
