The creator of the HEL Nordic Urban Bicycle and Skater Helmet, a new helmet designed to focus on safety and comfort, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise production and distribution funds. The name comes from the Danish word hel which means “complete” or “unbroken.”
HEL was created for everyday use with high-quality materials and a timeless Scandinavian design. The helmet is extremely comfortable and is created to not only deliver great performance but to be attractive as well. The creator notes, “Our mission with HEL is to make the practical bike helmet a natural design element in your everyday lifestyle – just like putting on a coat that goes perfectly with your choice of shoes or matching your outfit with your mood. In the HEL collection you will find both bold and more subtle color schemes making sure that you can always find a HEL that matches your style; whether you wear it on your way to work or going to that Saturday night out.
What makes HEL special is its unique Absorptive Brain Buffer System. The ABBS is a safety feature that uses ground-breaking technology developed by LINN and includes a shock-absorbing component that resides in the EPS lining of the helmet. ABBS discs absorb impact and rotational energy, transforming them into heat. This significantly reduces the risk of brain injury from impact. ABBS is based on the same technology used in high-tech engineering to dampen vibration around sensitive industrial equipment and is also used in American football and ice hockey helmets.
HEL also includes a changeable visor in two sizes. The short visor guides airflow to hidden ventilation channels, while the longer visor provides protection from sun and rain. The circular ventilation system and comfortable, sweat-absorbing material keep the head cool, and the adjustable neck dial and pads ensure a safe and comfortable fit.
