Tec3 / outdoor helmet


Tec.3 is a flexible bicycle and outdoor helmet. It`s an innovative application of D3O, a unique material which is soft, but on shock, locks together to absorb and disperse energy, before returning to their flexible shape. This allows to do a one size helmet which can be adjusted to fit perfectly on every form of head. It is also much more slim than a common foam helmet. So it is possible to do a lightweight helmet which looks more like a basecap or head accessory
