Lets all build these and see how things go. I am going to guess people might get a bit peeved, but the point will come home. One person doesn’t need that much road space. RIDE A BIKE!

Folding Bike Helmet

Written by Boston Biker on May 08

Hmmm…I never really had trouble figuring out what to do with my “old fashion” “non-folding” bike helmet. But this looks interesting.

And they claim it will meet crash test standards as well.

Before it can be sold in the U.S., it must meet safety standards set by the Consumer Products Safety Commission. Those tests measure the G-force of a helmet-covered fake head dropped onto anvils.

“The factory is building it to pass U.S. testing standards, but whilst we are in the preproduction stage, we can’t have official testing,” Woolf says in an e-mail. “The factory makes millions of helmets for the U.S. market each year and has the largest in-house helmet testing facility in the world, so they know the standards that they are going to need to meet.”
