We develop safe and sustainable mobility for tomorrow
Our long-term vision is to make green mobility even more attractive and safer in order to reduce environmental pollution in inner cities and combine freedom, fun and safety in road traffic. Explicitly, we want to make cycling safer by developing a helmet that is optimally adapted to urban conditions, looks stylish and offers people added value in everyday life.

Make cycling safer and more comfortable
Despite the accident figures, the majority of people do not wear a bicycle helmet in everyday life. We conclude that the origin is emotional motivations that bring the classic product bicycle helmet. Therefore, our idea is to develop an innovative bicycle helmet that finally meets the user needs and requirements in the city. The helmet can be compressed small and stored safely in your jacket pocket or on your bike. It adapts to any head shape and is guaranteed to sit comfortably on your head. And it’s safer than any classic city bike helmet you know. With our custom design we transform the bike helmet to your lifestyle product.
First inflatable bike helmet for urban cyclists
And this is how we put the idea into practice: unlike classic helmets, the bicycle helmet is not made of EPS foam, but is filled with air. The implementation of the helmet with the air-filled chambers we call the air cushion technology. It allows you to have better shock absorption in case of a fall and a very comfortable and light fit of the helmet on your head. When you finish a ride on your bike, you now have the possibility to let the air out of the helmet in about 1 second, compress it and store it e.g. in your jacket pocket. With a small electric pump you can then inflate the helmet again in a short time. You attach the pump which comes in a case to the bike and can also charge your cell phone or conveniently inflate your tires again.
