Foldable Helmet

Lugging around a bulky helmet is so inconvenient that millions of two wheeler riders and their pillions would chose to go without one—even though this may be a fatal choice. This Helmet is designed to improve this user experience: The main feature of the helmet is its ability to easily collapse with a single flick becoming compact and easy to carry.  The helmet design has gone through many iterative layers of safety, anatomy, manufacture, economics, ease of use, ergonomics and style considerations. Apart from the two piece locking mechanism, the materials used for the cushioning have also been modernized for added compactness.
