Collapsible Bike Helmet
The Overade is the urban answer to safety equipment
Bicycle brain buckets might be awesome at saving your life, but they're equally great at proclaiming the mayor of wedgie town, population: you.
Well we may have the answer to this sartorial/safety conflict. Plus, we love any excuse to showcase a funky new bike helmet.
Take a peek at the Overade folding bike helmet.
Promising to offer the full protection of a traditional bike helmet, the Overade is designed to fit into a typical backpack or messenger bag.
Aimed at the urban set determined to avoid wearing helmets at all cost (72 percent of fatal crashes in 2009 occurred in urban areas and 91 percent of fatal accidents featured helmetless riders), the Overade will hopefully keep riders safe and looking snazzy.
It's set to go into production this year and will be available overseas. But if the Overade does come to our shores, we hope you're ready to become the Bürgermeister of Coolsville.
