September 18, 2007 Bicycle helmets might be light, but they’re still very annoying to carry around because of their awkward shape. Stashkit have taken aim at this problem by producing a fold-up helmet that offers all the protection of a regular lid, but stows away much more easily. It’s the perfect companion for a fold-up bicycle.

The Stash is a normal bicycle helmet with inwardly rotating side panels that fold in to make it much more compact and easy to store. It’s as safe as an ordinary helmet, complying to several international safety standards and performance measures.

Stash also sells a backpack and rucksack with special compartments for the folded helmet.
