This is an innovative protective helmet which can be folded in a compact shape that is easy to carry. The operations to fold it and unfold it are fast and simple for the user. The helmet has an innovative locking mechanism to hold the helmet modules in position.
The helmet also comprises a sound system and a microphone which allows it to be connected, by Bluetooth, to a device like a mobile phone so that the cyclist can do things like listening to music and talking on the phone while cycling.
This product underwent a very thorough and comprehensive development process, from its very concept to substantial prototype testing.
Advance engineering plastics and design technologies were used to achieve the resulting modern design with protection for the cyclist. Work was carried out in collaboration with an electronics engineer.
