shocklite / bike helmet

„Soft“ bike helmet with active lighting. The safety is provided by flexible protective material (e.G. d3o) – the helmet becomes smooth, comfortable and highly breathable.

The active lighting transfers the light from the bike to the head of the rider, and this way allways into eye direktion. Front- and taillights (LEDŽs) and the necassary Li-Ion batteries are housed in the frame. At daylight the cells get recharged by the also used solar textile.

To work against the trend of not using a bike helmet because of style factors, shocklite was created in the style of the timeless beautiful Kangol Cap.
