Most traditional helmets are made from foam and because they are so bulky many choose to ride without them risking bodily injury or death. 97% of bicyclists who die from head injuries were not wearing a helmet. The helmet can be rolled, stuffed, folded, and easily stored. It's designed to collapse in the shape of a water bottle since most bikes have a space for that. its creators say they want to incorporate the helmet into the bike share programs that operate in many cities.
