If you were on the kickstarter train a few years back, you might remember the Høvding – an “invisible” bike helmet, invented by the bike-happy Swedish. Of course, the helmet wasn’t exactly invisible. It had a Prestige-esque twist at the end of the product video that revealed the stylish scarves they were wearing to be a sort of airbag. Is this practical? Jury’s out. If you’ve tried it, let us know your thoughts.
If you’re not sure you want to adopt scarves over traditional head coverings, you might be interested in trying out the Morpher Helmet. The model folds flat to allow easier storage, and encourage more bike-commuters to adopt helmets into their rides. Once you’re locked up, flatten your helmet and pop it in your purse (or murse) and be on with your day, sans head injury.
