Air Pocket Helmet / Product

Air Pocket Helmet
Air Pocket Helmet

Most helmets are made with thick/heavy interior materials to protect the head but because of this they are not easy to put-on and take-off. It can also the make-up and hairstyle of the wearer. It can also lead to fitting problems, as not all helmets perfectly fit all people, as heads come in many different sizes.
The air pocket helmet was designed to help resolve these problems. First, the air pocket helmet has lighter weight interior material. When the user clicks the ‘start’ button on the outside of the helmet, air fills the interior pockets to fit to the user’s head and provide protection.
