Foldable Bike Helmet

Cycling is undoubtedly fun and a great way to keep fit, but we all know it can be dangerous if you don’t take safety precautions — yet so many cyclists in Holland still don’t wear their helmets!

A common excuse cyclists use is that the helmets are such a pain to carry around, but perhaps this neat fold-up device will encourage more cyclists to protect their heads. The helmet simply folds into a compact form that you can fit in your bag as soon as you’re done. Called ‘Overade’, this fantastic helmet is a unisex design created by designer Patrick Jouffret from Agence 360 and engineer Philippe Arrouart — two men who may very well have figured out a way to appeal to risk-taking cyclists.
