It took Swedish designers Anna Haupt and Terese Alpin year of research to design a helmetless head protection for cyclists.
A lot of people who ride bikes don't like to wear helmets because they are uncomfortable, they flatten your hair and make your head sweat. And because some find bike helmets just look ugly or because riders just like to feel the wind in their hair, the designers wanted to create a solution for all of those people who want to protect their heads without wearing a traditional helmet.
Passionate bikers themselves, the designing duo brought their idea into practice after spending years perfecting a 10 million dollar idea. Let’s hope that the price of Euro 399 will not be a problem for widespread adoption.
