I want this bike helmet, right now!

The exhausting thing about Kickstarter, Indiegogo & Co. is that they get you thrilled about a great new product – and force you to wait months before you can get your hands on it. And yet again, I haven’t been able to resist.

Before I saw my new dream helmet, I had a headache. This is what had happened: I recently had the chance to borrow a very fast e-scooter for a day. This vehicle – I’ll publish my article about it on Galaxus soon – was so much fun that I used in just about every free minute.

I also rode it into our bike storage room in the basement. What I didn’t consider: I wasn't sitting on a bike, I was standing up on a scooter. I hit my head on the door frame – not just a bit, but really hard. How lucky that I was wearing my bike helmet.

The blow to my head was impressive. Without a helmet, I would have seen red. Blood red. (If you've never seen a head injury before: trust me, there’s a lot of blood.) In my case, I saw white. The white paint of the door frame on my bike helmet.

And now I really need a new bike helmet. It was by pure chance that I came across an ad for this beauty and I spontaneously fell in love with the foldable bike helmet by Park & Diamond.

  • it’s lightweight
  • it’s collapsible and fits in my backpack
  • it’s pretty
  • it’s a baseball cap
  • it’s washable

And it’s created «by ex-SpaceX engineers». This has to be a sign of quality – like the «medical grade aluminium» on my smartphone. I mean, these guys build rockets. Creating the most impressive bike helmet on the planet must be a piece of cake for them. I gladly spent 89 dollars on this product; I’m genuinely interested in it. The only downside is, as I mentioned earlier, I have to wait until autumn for my new helmet.

In the meantime, I’m going to take a look at the guide my colleague Michael Restin wrote and hope to find an interim solution there.

By the way: if you're also keen on the foldable bike helmet, bike expert Daniel Feucht from our product management team also thinks this helmet is interesting and would include it in our range. If it makes it onto the market. And if there's enough interest.
