From Melon Head Protectors to Reptilian-Inspired Helmets

Bicycle safety is nothing to be taken lightly and these helmet designs make sure you arrive at your destination in one piece, though you might get some strange looks while you cycle.

Your noggin is valuable, but so is storage space. Some of these clever designs are made to be collapsible so that they can easily be tucked into a bag or pocket when you arrive at your destination. Other practical helmet designs integrate solar panels to top up devices on the go and integrate other features like lights and blinkers for increased road safety.

Some of the strangest designs take advantage of round shapes to make the wearer's head look like a disco ball or watermelon -- quite a literal way to protect your melon.
