There is no way that a driver or pedestrian will be able to miss a cyclist wearing the Citi Bike Helmet. It has been outfitted with three strips of colorful LED lights, which are as vibrant as a shining rainbow. Essentially, it is a modified Carrera foldable helmet.

Created for New York City's Citi Bike program, the Citi Bike Helmet not only keeps cyclists visible at night, it also helps them navigate to the nearest Citi Bike docking station when their time is up. This is achieved through the use of an embedded FLORA GPS module. As versatile and useful as the Citi Bike Helmet, it isn't officially affiliated with the bike program, but it probably will be soon.
