“The Cyclo is a helmet like no other, made with recycled ocean plastic. It fits in your bag and won’t cost the earth. Each purchase saves the equivalent of 20 single-use plastic bottles from damaging our planet. A traditional bike helmet is typically made from EPS foam which releases the energy back to the user’s head during impact. This means there is greater likelihood of a head injury. The Cyclo honeycomb structure is 68% more effective at impact control as the force is dissipated. This means significantly less energy is transferred to the head making The Cyclo a more effective helmet.“
