  • "Helmets are for lessening an impact on your brain.  Everything layered on top, led lights in this example, are another hard point that can increase forces., requiring extra thickness.  When crowdfunding young designers take a big swing at a bike helmet the first factor they think is thin,  "let's beat that awful fat head aesthetic"  However,  the reason helmets have a standard thickness, is because that is what is required to pass testing, not because clueless old companies never thought of making a thin design.  The design is nice, a derivative of Sweet helmets, in a helmet that will pass certification at the rear and brow, the thickness with a hard led bar is too thin, will never meet the G forces required.  The design will be delayed as they retool thicker and thicker versions until it looks nothing like what they sold. And everyone will be older and wiser."

  • "Bending fibers into a weave (especially with thicker "bundles" of low modulus fiber) decreases stiffness and increases flexibility and chance of load collapse.  Seems counter intuitive in this application."

  • "️ Applaud the transparency for facial communications, however, everything other design choice is unusual.   Shatterproof?  The whole product seems like it should have been iterated a few more times.  The seal on the edge of the inflexible glass is not at all convincing."
