Now that the urban cycling culture has become inundated with hipsters of every denomination, designers have been keen to come up with unusual forms of bike gear that present a twist on convention.
With that in mind, we can’t think of a helmet that better captures the zeitgeist of the neo-urban cyclist than the Closca Fuga collapsible bike helmet.
Winner of a prestigious RedDot Design Award, the minimalist Fuga is made from reinforced fiberglass, which comprises three concentrically arranged molded foam sections, that when collapsed, brings the helmet down to a one-piece flat disk that measures a mere 2.36 inches in depth.
But, don’t let the Fuga’s diminutive design fool you when it comes to safety, as the helmet meets or exceeds world-wide safety standards.
Fuga sells for $100, along with a new Nordic version that features a stylish wool liner to keep the cold out.
more from Closca…
Closca Fuga comprises 3 mobile concentric rings hinged together with 2 stable positions. Our patented system reduces volume by more than 50% after fold and becomes flat like a book. Closca Fuga is the only foldable helmet that fits in any purse or backpack.
When we designed Closca Fuga we wanted to create a stylish, light and comfortable, but above all safe helmet.
The helmet stays locked and immutable while your head is inside, but folds smoothly in a second when you’re not using it, reducing the volume by more than 50% for easy storage. Unfolded, it acts as any regular helmet does exceeding the global safety standards.
When we designed our bike helmet with our creative partner CuldeSac we thought of those who choose bicycle as their transportation alternative and do not want to compromise their style. Wearing a helmet when riding to work through the city and looking stylish became our opportunity to create a new product that would transform this safety element into a fashion accessory.
The result is a minimalist, simple and elegant helmet designed to be part of your style.
