Bikers often face a heightened risk of injury when they fall into a car's blind spot -- an unavoidable yet extremely dangerous occurrence which the Classon Helmet was designed to combat. By infusing the classic design with smart technology, bicycle company 'Brooklyness' was able to design an intelligent helmet that responds to your body's movements.

Equipped with cameras on the front and the back, the helmet can inform the wearer when a car is approaching, or if they've slipped into a vehicle's blind spot, prompting them to take the appropriate precautions. Lights on the sides and rear of the helmet will illuminate in response to your arms movements, informing drivers of an upcoming turn, or brake. This simple and intuitive helmet is improving communication between drivers and cyclists, while remaining distraction-free and safe to use.
