About this project
The FOLDABLE bicycle helmet designed to bring safety and convenience into your life. No more carrying around a bulky helmet. No more overheating. No more risking your life. NO MORE EXCUSES.
FEND was designed with the urban commuter in mind and can be incorporated into any lifestyle. Whether you're riding to work, to class, or to meet up with friends, you can simply FOLD the helmet and store it in your bag until it’s needed again.
FEND is designed to exceed US CPSC and European EN 1078 safety standards. Comprised of a multi-impact EPP liner to absorb high impact and supported by an ABS exterior hard shell. The ultra durable nylon straps reinforce the security of the helmet and work with the EPP liner to ensure the impact is absorbed properly. For maximum comfort, the streamlined vents, adjustable internal fit system, and the plush interior lining have been added.

Risks and challenges
Our #1 goal is to deliver the best quality and safest product. We've put together an amazing team with over 20 years of experience each in manufacturing. In this first production run, we will ensure all aspects of the product will not be compromised, with safety as the priority. With most manufacturing, there can be potential delays in the tooling process, leading to further production delays. However, we will do everything in our power to deliver the best product to you on time and to keep you informed along the way.
FEND is designed to exceed all US CPSC and European EN1078 Safety Standards. We will not be able to complete the certification testing until after production by law, however we are confident we will exceed all safety testing standards.
We will reach out to you once the campaign is completed for your size and color preference. Note, we will offer 2 sizes: S/M or L/XL, and 2 color options: FEND Matte White or FEND Matte Black.
FEND is designed to exceed US CPSC and European EN1078 bicycle safety standards. Our quality control team is currently undergoing testing with our scientific prototypes as well as conducting FEA simulations. We are confident we will exceed all certification requirements, however, by law, we are unable to complete certifications until production is complete.
FEND is designed to exceed all US (CPSC) and European (EN1078) bicycle safety standards. We hope to expand to other areas down the line (i.e. skateboarding, scooters, horseback riding, etc).
First, the helmet clicks into place to inform the user it is fully open. While the user is wearing the helmet, the adjustable chin straps keep it securely in place.
