Collapsible Bike Helmet: Hope It Doesn’t Collapse on Your Head

 |  |  |  |

Let’s face it, helmets are huge. They are a hassle to store and transport when not on your head. Want a bike helmet to protect your head, but prefer something that’s not as bulky as traditional helmets? The Collapsible Helmet collapses, accordion style, when not in use for easy storage.


Designer Michael Rose created this helmet, which is rugged despite the way it looks. When collapsed, this helmet becomes the size of a book so that you can easily put it in a backpack. It uses foldable layers of plastic to make it both safe and small, yet when opened up, it can still absorb shocks.

It was inspired by origami of course, and it’s designed in such a way as to be safe, despite looking fragile.

As long as it doesn’t collapse during an accident, I think we can all love this helmet.
