Our Work

EGG Helmets, a fast growing startup originally from the Netherlands, turned to Maven to add a Magento e-commerce store to their existing website’s CMS.

About EGG Helmets

Holland may best known for its windmills and tulips, but the Dutch are absolutely crazy about bicycles. While everybody loves to bike in Holland, like anywhere is the world children don’t like to wear helmets. This is how EGG Helmets was born to encourage road safety by offering playful, customizable helmets for kids. Today the company offers multi-sport childrens’ helmets in 19 countries and through its online store worldwide.

The Challenge

The goal for the EGG Helmets was to create a scalable online store without spending too much of their financial resources right away. Having chosen to use the most popular online store platform – Magento, the startup chose to use the existing website content management system and to implement the Magento store as a Shop section of their website. The store had to be implemented as a constructor of a unique custom product: a helmet with different bases, skins and add-ons.

Our Solution

Maven has created an easy-to-use store that fit seamlessly into the existing website’s design. The users are greeted with clean product detail pages that reveal just enough detail at each stage of the customer’s journey. Shopping and checkout are intuitive, and so are the administration of the catalog and the order processing.

Multiple shipping function ensures that corporate and multiple gift items can be shipped to a number of addresses – all from one order.
