Details

"I dismissed this product as a gimmicky when I first heard of it, but actually it’s innovative design details do have function and purpose. The fit is genuinely better than many of the other helmets on the market at this price point (£60.00) and it really does help keep your head cool." - londoncyclist.co.uk

"The Carrera's ability to mould to different shapes might give you a perfect fit at last. If you want a helmet that takes up a little less room, and is more easily stowed than a traditional helmet, then this is one of the few certified options on the market. Overall a comfortable space-saving helmet." - road.cc

Like the flying car and cracking the DNA code, they thought it would never be done. Humanity has sought for generations to create the foldable helmet. And here it is. This video shows you more.

Congratulations to Carrera for creating a helmet that not only reduces shrinks in width by a quarter to just 15cm wide (perfect to slip into your bag), but also looks downright beautiful. And crucially, one that passes all relevant safety tests as impressively as any 'traditional' helmet.

Inspired by the old leather 'helmets' that were little safer than a cap, its unique patented flexible frame and elastic structure help it to fit more comfortably than perhaps any other helmet available. Its exceptional venting helps to keep your head cool. The colours, like this cool blue, are classy and eye-catching. And additional extras stand out: like an adjustable belt to use as a trouser clip while you're biking or to squash it down to size when you're not, and a dinky little rear light. We can't get enough of it.

A little bit male-focused, but you get the idea:

Who's Behind It?

Carrera are one of Europe's largest helmet manufacturers, and is one of the most respected brands seen on the roads of the continent. They have an exceptional heritage across the complete range of helmet styles, and have provided helmets to some of the top racing teams.

But they don't rest on their laurels - far from it. Their scale and capabilities are far reaching, and they are constantly bringing innovation and new technology to the helmet market. Whilst we often err towards smaller companies, with helmets there's a certain additional reassurance working with such an established name. And it helps keep prices down too, which is no bad thing.
