Description

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 those old leather 'helmets', its unique patented flexible frame and elastic structure help it to fit incredibly comfortably. Its exceptional venting helps to keep your head cool. The colours 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 compact it when you're not. We can't get enough of it.

Size Guide

One size: 55-58cm - to measure whether it will work for you, simply wrap a measuring tape comfortably around your head at the level that a helmet rim would sit at.

The helmet's sizing is flexible via integrated elasticated straps.

Geek's Corner

  • Unique design that reduces in volume by nearly 25% when not in use
  • Exceptional front-to-back ventilation minimises moisture retention, helped by absence of lateral bars
  • Adjustable strap with metal clip for use to compress the helmet, or as a trouser clip when riding
  • Elastic fitting system provides anatomical support for the back of the head achieving exceptional comfort and stability
  • Adjustable side straps allow for optimal regulation
  • Top level safety standard: EN 1078 certification

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.
