Two college students are revolutionizing the way that bicyclists stay safe on the roads.
David Hall and Jordan Klein are the masterminds behind the Park and Diamond helmet – a piece of headwear that is as thin and stylish as a baseball cap or beanie, but as durable as a traditional bike helmet.
The helmet’s versatility means that it can easily be folded up and stored in a bag or stuffed into a bike’s water bottle holder.
“We thought, ‘What does every bike and bag have? A place to store a water bottle. So, if the helmet fits in that space, the rider can always be covered,’” Klein said. “Carrying a helmet becomes a seamless part of life.”
The Virginia Tech students presented the helmet at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference for entrepreneurs in New York last year – and it was a huge commercial success.
The Park and Diamond helmets are set to go on sale this summer. The headwear is available as a baseball cap or beanie.
