Putting a different lid on it
Right up there with “I love you” and “the check is in the mail,” “a full-face helmet fits under the seat” is, at best, wishful thinking with many scooters.
Australian design student Jessica Dunn spent five months in Indonesia lugging a conventional helmet around after the one she originally had was stolen. She knew there had to be a better way, and came up with one.
As you can see, it fits neatly in a backpack, and would take up very little space in the pet-cooker of a modern Vespa. Among its other interesting features is an impact-absorbing material that’s pliable until it gets whacked (which I’m going to guess makes the foldability possible); if such material were easily replaceable, that would make the Proteus an economical and eco-friendly device as well.
As this is written the Proteus helmet is still a concept. I’m hoping some company will put it into production, soon.
