Another Cool Bike Helmet: Overade's Foldable Design

by Adele Peters

December 21, 2012

French designer Philippe Arrouar first started thinking about helmets in 2007, when Paris started its public bike-share program. Most riders didn't ride helmets, and when the Arrouar asked why, the answers were simple. Helmets are a pain to carry around after the ride is over, and if the point of a bike-share program is to allow people to spontaneously jump on a bike as needed, carrying around a bulky helmet becomes even more annoying. Most helmets also just didn't look good.

Overade developed a basic design for a folding helmet by 2009, and after years of safety testing and refining the aesthetics, they're on their way to market. Check it out on Ulule, a French crowdfunding site.
