We’ll be the first to admit that we do stupid stuff on a regular basis, but one of the things we refuse to do is skip the bike helmet. They might not be the coolest accessories in your collection off the shelf, but messing up your sweet coif is an easy price to pay in exchange for having an intact skull. They’re also kind of a pain to carry around, but let’s face it, if you ride long enough in an urban environment you’re going to get hit by a car. The Closca Collapsible Bike Helmet solves both of those problems. The system is built around a safety rated collapsible shell that gives you high impact protection, comfort padding and an adjustable retention system–while still collapsing enough to easily fit in your bag. The X1 cover that fits on top of the shell will be available in six different styles to start, with plans for more if the project gets funded. Help these guys out so we can get our hands on one.
