A smart helmet that delivers style, safety and comfort with a state-of-the-art light system, ventilation, MIPS and fall detection. To ride a bike in traffic dense cities will be challenging until most adopts biking. So why not take whats good on a car (like turn signals and lights) and integrate them into your helmet. In a sleek way, looking good rather than looking like you are training for your next mountain bike race. Your date will be pleasantly surprised. And relieved. That you are safe of course!
Cycling accidents on the street are often caused by lack of visibility and unclear communication. Drivers and other riders not seeing you well enough or not knowing what you’re going to do next.
80% of riders use cycling lights and still don’t feel safe. Why? Because they’re small and sit quite low. On top of that, they are easily lost, forgotten or even stolen.
Add on option, a handlebar remote
Because not everyone bikes the same way, turn signals aren’t as necessary in the countryside as they are in big city, it brings the cost of the helmet down for those who don’t require them. Its a good way to make it more affordable for some.
