This stylish foldable bike helmet uses breakthrough technology to compactly conceal the helmet after usage. Even though bicycle helmets are mandatory in some regions, not everyone is convinced about wearing them due to the bulkiness of the hard-shelled protective gear.

The Closca Urban Bike Helmet by Closca Helmets caters to user needs by designing the helmet to easily assemble into a flatter disk shape, so that it is easy to put away after using it. These helmets also keep up with the latest trends, disguised as stylish hats instead of sporty, hard shells.

Closca’s first model is called the Turtle. It’s a registered system that reduces the helmets’ semi-sphere bulkiness into something half its size. There is no complex mechanism involved—anyone can easily flatten or reconstruct the helmet with one movement, in less than a second. Now you’ll be able to throw in your helmet into your bags.
