The brand was founded by Gahl Cohn and Amit Shita, who both formerly worked for Funkier apparel. The pair are seeking worldwide distributors.

Miga claims that its E1 e-bike helmet meets the new speed-pedelec NTA 8776 helmet standard.

A speed-pedelec assists the rider with pedalling up to a maximum of 45 km/h, and riders have to wear moped-certified helmets. Many cycle helmet manufacturers now supply speed-pedelec helmets which meet the new – and Dutch – NTA 8776 standard.  This was drafted by an international project group under the management of Dutch standards. body NEN. An NTA 8776-certified helmet looks like a bicycle helmet, but protects against higher impact speeds and covers a larger part of the head.
