I don't ride without a helmet - my brain's too important to me - but if you do the research, current helmets aren't actually that safe, and they're uncomfortable, and bulky when you're not wearing them . I've hunted high and low for something better, and now a British team has developed a game-changing helmet which I think is much safer, more comfortable, and folds up small when not in use. And best of all, it's re-useable - you don't have to throw it away after a bump. They're trying to raise enough money through crowd-funding to go into mass production, and they've only got 8 days left.
I really rate this helmet, and I think it deserves support. I've ordered one for Joy and I, and I do recommend you take a look, and if you can, support this brilliant improvement in cycling safety. It's at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/headkayse-a-game-changer-in-cycle-helmet-safety#/story. As with all crowd-funding projects, there are risks, but they look pretty small to me.
Let me know what you think.
