New helmet design
Now in stock – the Kranium Cardboard Helmet – a cardboard constructed helmet designed by Royal College of Art industrial design student Anirudha Surabhi. Research into why woodpeckers don’t get concussion revealed the bird’s unique corrugated cartilage structure which spreads the impact force and therefore protects the brain. The designer was struck by the woodpecker’s ability to withstand repeated heavy impact and decided to use the concept as a basis for a new helmet design.
- Absorbs 3x the amount of impact compared to a regular polystyrene helmet
- Sustainable – Think Green! – the Abus Kranium is made from recycled materials
- Lightweight – 15% lighter than typical polystyrene or EPS helmets
