TOKYO: In the year 1958, the successful story of “Marushin Helmets” began with the founding of a small company by Watanabe Shin for the production of motorcycle helmets. This year, in 2018, MARUSHIN® celebrates its 60th anniversary.
Shin’s entrepreneurial vision was marked by a strong sense of quality and ongoing innovation, the typical drivers of rising Japan. By combination of Watanabe’s first name „Shin“ – which means „reliable and steadfast“ and the Japanese word for circle – „Maru“ the name „Marushin“ was created. Maru was the protective circle around the head of Mr. Shin and Marushin was a perfectly fitting name for a helmet brand born in Japan. This Maru should also protect the customers of MARUSHIN® and, in combination with the latest technology, provide protection against bad luck.
In the beginning, Marushin helmets were only distributed in Japan, where it is a tradition to not say a lot about special achievements. Anyway, not at this point, let´s make clear: MARUSHIN® offers products with an impressive price-performance ratio. Be aware that our innovative helmets were assembled by hand with the highest quality of workmanship possible.
