Bikes: Riding Safely

Abstract [en]

Every day ten or more cyclists in Sweden are involved in accidents serious enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. Most of them are hurt when falling off their bikes or crashing without any external involvement.

Cycling has always been a staple transport, and the trend keeps growing with the current green wave.

The cyclists helmet today looks pretty much the same way it always has, with improvements to safety and ergonomics on the higer end products, but the reasons for not wanting to use it as a safety tool remain.

The project focus has been to circumvent these reasons, and find something that would actually be used every single day, no matter where or how you ride.

The final result is a product that fits its context in a superiour way to anything else available on the market, and hopefully allows users to feel free from the regular constraints of a normal helmet.
