The impetus behind the design and style of the Alpha head protection was create a helmet that could be lighter than existing kinds and could easily end up being put away so you didn’t have to carry it or run the risk of losing this. The company’s design crew settled on the pangolin’s ability to roll by itself up into an ball as the primary style element, with all the bee honeycomb as the influence at the rear of the internal structure to give the helmet the ability to absorb hard impacts. A double-lock program consisting of a device on either side of the helmet must end up being engaged for the headgear to fold properly in either direction and stay locked in place.
The helmet is also built in order that each of the sections or blades that comprise the foldable parts is overlaid in a manner that adds to its overall stability and structural integrity. In addition, the helmet incorporates a no-choke system that views the chinstrap automatically break free if someone drags the helmet from at the rear of if it’s folded up and sitting with your shoulder blades.
Golem Innovation says this is primarily targeting snow-boarding like skiing and baseball, and most bicycle sports activities. Eventually, it wants to expand to feature just regarding any sport where within the helmet is either important or prudent.
The firm recently designed a Kickstarter plan to raise over EUR200, 000 (US $224, 300) to help bring the Alpha helmet to marketplace. Early backers can pre-order the Alpha for EUR175 ($195) with shipments anticipated by June 2017 in the event the company is prosperous in taking this helmet via concept to completion.
