While helmets are required by law to be worn at all times when cycling or on a motorbike, the size and fitting of a helmet isn’t regulated by the government. And even though it is always safer to wear a helmet when riding, a badly fitted helmet can be just as dangerous as not wearing one at all. To counter this problem, some designers have come up with a concept called the inflatable helmet pad.
Used in conjunction with your regular helmet, the helmet pad basically an extra accessory that is fitted in between your head and the helmet. Once it is put on, riders can then inflate the helmet pad to make sure that the helmet becomes a snug fit. When a helmet is snug, it avoids movement or slipping of the helmet when riding and the inflated pad can also provide extra protection in the case of an accident. How’s that for simple and innovative? Now let’s see these on the market ASAP. Head over to Yanko Design to find out more about the inflatable helmet pad.
