People are cycling more than ever. In Europe and the USA more bicycles are now being sold than cars. It is inevitable that as more people take the road on a bicycle, more people will have accidents.
This new foldable helmet is a revolution in the city bike protection. It is inspired by the Pill Bug in the way it folds. It can be used anytime while riding a bike. Later, once you are not using it, it can be folded and placed into a bag.
The Bola Helmet’s shape and mechanics are inspired by the Pill Bug. Observing these insects, I came up with the idea of working with layers. The Bola Helmet is designed by 5 layers that folds into one.
This helmet was developed in order to help the users in their daily life, bringing security while riding a bike and easiness, while folding and keeping it.
