Re: New Helmet!!!!!

That was mentioned on the radio on the way home tonight. It is for riders of Ridiculous Children's Toys.

Personally I would just ban them from the road.

Re: New Helmet!!!!!

http://www.recumbentblog.com/2010/10/20/krocktest/

It is a “crash test” on a neck-collar/air-bag-helmet for cyclists.


from the above site...

"It is really easy to laugh at this sort of thing (even some of the Hövding test staff seem amused at one point) and the price tag of about $450 might seem a bit steep… but I for one am glad to see that someone somewhere is continuing to work on alternative ways of reducing cycle injuries…"

Re: New Helmet!!!!!

Thanks, Paul! That is a good find!

Watching it deploy then the compression by the head impact with objects was pretty telling.... my noggin doesn't "flex" that much without serious problems.
