Foldable Bike Helmet Stretches to Fit Your Oddly Shaped Head

Helmets are a crucial piece of safety equipment, but unless they fit just right, they can get uncomfortable. This new helmet by Carrera aims to solve that problem by stretching laterally to fit your fat (or not-so-fat) head.

The design is inspired by old, leather helmets that had a bit more give to them. With its flexible frame, the helmet manages not only to stretch to fit your specific dome, but also can be compressed down for storage or travel. It also functions as an actual helmet, of course, and claims to be just as effective as any non-stretching helmet out there.

No word on when it'll be available or how much it'll cost, but it seems like a novel way to make helmet-wearing a little less uncomfortable, and it's stylish to boot. I guess you could just go back to leather, but something like this is probably a better bet. [Bless This Stuff]
