Bulky helmets are the bane of any stylish person who also likes to commute via bicycle.
But it's a risk said stylish person is (hopefully) willing to take: helmets reduce the risk of concussion by 85 percent.
Making your commute less unsightly: Fend, creators of a bike helmet that is breathable, stylish and capable of collapsing inward, accordion-like, so that it can easily fit in your day pack or messenger bag.
It’s also designed to exceed US CPSC and European EN 1078 safety standards, with an ABS hard shell on the outside and a plush, shock-absorbing liner on the inside. It’s on Kickstarter now, and for $79 you can have one by May, just in time for those spring and summer rides.
