Concept Bicycle Helmet That Tucks Into A Water Bottle – UPDATED

UPDATE 2/21/2020: Following up on the much-hyped Park & Diamond foldable bicycle helmet, it appears the company has not yet delivered a single helmet. The company’s last update to their 13,040 backers explains that the latest delivery delay is due to…wait for it…the Coronavirus!

I flew home white knuckled because of severe air turbulence with the lady behind me yelling obscenities and the flight attendants hugging a poor kid who couldn’t stop crying. All this and I’m already planning next year’s trip to The One Moto Show! Yep, that’s how much fun The One Moto Show is. Stinky clothes, bloody and bruised and losing lunch won’t deter me. You want to know…
