Why is it that so many of the things with life-saving potential look so silly? Take, for instance, this bicycle helmet that lights up like a halo. The Angel Bicycle Helmet not only protects your noggin from injury with its polycarbonate shell, it’s got a 360-degree ring of LED and fiber-optic encircling your head.
The USB-rechargeable halo can be set to constant-on, or to flash on a regular basis. Sure, your bike might already have LED front and rear lights, but drivers coming from anywhere other than head-on or behind you might not see you – making dark intersections especially dangerous. With this bright yellow halo wrapped around your dome, there’s no way that drivers will miss you. Of course, they might point and laugh – resulting in a different kind of safety risk – driver distraction. At least they’ll have a good laugh before they crash.
You can find the Angel Bicycle Helmet over at Firebox for £49.99 (appx. $83 USD).
