Flower Skull Neoprene Face Mask

The point of riding a motorcycle is to attract attention to how awesome you are. Anything you wanna hype, we can put on a face mask for you. This flower skull face mask is great for a florist. Did you know that there is actually a florist school? It is called the American Institute of Floral Designers.

I don't recommend wearing this face mask in pollen season.

Japanese startup Borderless Inc’s $1399 smart helmet blurs sci-fi and reality

While the helmet, priced at $1,399 on Kickstarter (retail value $1,799), is expensive for the price-sensitive Indian market, it is more likely to resonate with luxury automobile aficionados.

If you are a motorcycle enthusiast into expensive mean machines, here is a helmet that can add to your gear — CrossHelmet X1 by Borderless Inc features 360˚ FOV (field of view), ambient sound control, and connectivity for safety and experience.

Arata Oono, Founder and CEO of Borderless, always had a passion for riding. He was 17 when he got his first motorcycle and he now rides a Husqvarna SMS630. Arata’s collection of bikes includes a Norton Manx, BMW R32, and MV Agusta F4 Serie Oro. Before establishing Borderless Inc in 2012, Arata was a product designer at GK Design Group where he worked on several domestic and international projects for Yamaha Motor Co, which included designing the MT-09. He has a degree in design and industrial design from Tokyo University of the Arts. Borderless was chosen to be a part of the Nikon Corporate Accelerator programme and Sony’s Startup Switch seed acceleration program.

Arata started developing CrossHelmet three years ago. According to international traffic accident statistics by WHO, around 1.25 million people die in traffic accidents every year, nearly half of those dying on the world’s roads are “vulnerable road users”: pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. Wearing a motorcycle helmet correctly can reduce the risk of death by almost 40 percent and the risk of severe injury by over 70 percent. “The idea of CrossHelmet came out of the frustration of using a traditional helmet while on the road. Problems pertaining to noise fatigue and situational awareness are commonplace; it’s just that nobody has yet created a solution that addresses all these issues in one clean package,” says Arata on the motivation behind such a product.

CrossHelmet X1’s rear camera captures 170° directly behind the driver. It is then combined with a wide-view visor that allows more road-view and peripheral vision, offering 360° visibility. Loud noises can increase the stress and fatigue of the rider. To address this, the helmet is equipped with CrossSound Control, a patented noise reduction system that is the first of its kind in the motorcycle industry. It uses an algorithm system to filter out sound distractions like road, engine, and wind noise while maintaining noise cues that are needed for the rider’s safety. The system can also enhance environmental sound as needed.

An accompanying Bluetooth-enabled CrossHelmet app lets users check battery levels, control safety lights, adjust noise settings, and access maps. It is linked to a bifocal, heads-up display at the front of the helmet showing compass direction, weather, time, and navigation. A group chat feature allows the rider to communicate with multiple people at once, even those without a CrossHelmet. The helmet’s speakers provide high-quality music, podcasts/radio, and phone calls.

The Kickstarter campaign has raised $335,865, much beyond the goal of $100,000, demonstrating a market for this tech-heavy helmet. On partnering with automobile or e-commerce companies globally, Arata adds – “We have received many offers from distributors internationally, from companies of all sizes. Our main focus right now is fulfilling our crowdfunding orders, so we have not yet planned or decided on means of distribution.”

The smart helmet market is in its nascent stage, but with huge potential in developing countries, with India being the biggest market. Skully, a startup which had raised around $2.4M through crowdfunding shut down last year after mismanagement and delays. Last month, there were reports of Skully being revived under a new management.

James Dyson award for motorcycle helmet

Three IIT-BHU students (Naman Singhal, Rishabh Babeley, Jagjeet Shyamkunwar, Vikram Kumar Jha) have come up with a motorcycle helmet that aims to reduce the risk of death by almost 40 per cent. It has been designed with two modules in the product, one is in helmet and the second module is fitted onto the motorcycle.

The helmet gets switched on by putting the strap and the sensor inside the helmet, which detects the presence of a human. This ensures that the driver is wearing a helmet before sending a signal wirelessly to the motorcycle to turn on. Accelerometer and crash sensors detect accidents and send information to nearby emergency services, indicating them of the crash location.

Rabbit Motorcycle Helmet Cover

Rabbit Motorcycle Helmet Cover
Check out our Rabbit Motorcycle Helmet Cover in action.

Our Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover was custom made for Hugh Hefner. We never sent it to him because he is dead now. Never let them say that we don't have a heart.
This Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover will get you tons of attention and kind of sucks when you ride with it.  The ears are like big sails.
The peripheral vision also sucks.
This cover is best for a bike night or a parade.  I would not try it on the interstate.

Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover is lightweight, has elastic to hold him snug to your helmet, and is easily put on and taken off in seconds.
Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover will keep your helmet from getting scratched and chipped.
Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover can interfere with the ventilation of your helmet, but he also reduces road noise a bit.
Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover may vary slightly from the photo because they are handmade.
Bunny Motorcycle Helmet Cover is one size fits all.

Icon recall helmets due to safety concerns

ICON has issued a voluntary recall on three helmets due to insufficiently attached D-rings, which could detach and cause injury or death to riders.

The motorcycle gear manufacturer has issued the recall on all sizes of its Alliance Dark helmets manufactured from January 2017 to July 2017, and Alliance GT Horror and Rubatone helmets manufactured from March 2017 to July 2017.

In a statement on its website, Icon said: “The potentially affected helmets may contain a defect related to motor vehicle safety.

“In particular, faulty stitching on the nylon webbing attached to the D-rings may possibly not remain secure within the webbing.

“This may allow the D-rings to separate from the chin strap. In the event of a crash, the wearer may not be adequately protected, increasing the risk of personal injury or death.”

Icon says that while only a small number of potentially affected helmets feature the defect, the entire production lot is being recalled as a precaution.

Riders are being urged to check their Icon helmet’s model name, style, delivery date and manufacturing date label to ascertain whether it is affected.

Helmets received after September 12, 2017 may have already been checked for the defect. If they feature a green check mark on the date label and box barcode, then they are not subject to the recall.

Replacement helmets, in the same model and style, will be provided free of charge to owners of the affected helmets, providing they complete the recall form.

A new company is trying to revive the Skully AR helmet

Last year, Skully, the startup that crowdfunded its AR motorcycle helmet, shut down following many delays, mounting financial woes and an attempted sale to LeEco that didn't go through. But TechCrunch got its hands on an email that was sent to those still registered to the Skully email list and it says the original company's technology might not be lost forever.

Skully, Inc. is still dead and gone, but under the helm of co-founders Ivan and Rafael Contreras, a new company -- Skully Technologies -- has formed in its place. In the email, Ivan, the new company's president, said that Skully Technologies would be bringing back the Skully helmet. "We are happy to inform you that the assets of Skully, Inc., have been acquired by Ivan Contreras and Rafael Contreras, successful businessmen in a variety of global turnaround industrial and technology ventures, with the goal of fulfilling Skully's destiny," he said.

The Contreras' iteration of Skully is headquartered in Atlanta. Ivan goes on to vaguely suggest in his letter that those who backed the original helmet may get something for their efforts but doesn't say in any concrete terms what that might be. "Although Skully Technologies has no formal obligation to the customers of the now defunct Skully, Inc., we recognize that hundreds of Skully helmet enthusiasts around the world have contributed to this product and were understandably disappointed that they never received one. We are determined to make this right."

That last bit also appears on Skully Technology's website, the homepage of which prominently features the phrase "Determined to make it right." How the new company will do that is unclear and it's very possible that it won't at all. Plus, only time will tell whether it can actually get the helmet on the market. But backers of the original Skully can have slightly more hope today than they did yesterday that they might finally get something for their investment.

Customer email exchange

Geoff - I am looking for a new helmet that doesn’t give me mushroom head.

Iron Horse Helmets - Are you looking for a novelty or a DOT helmet?

Geoff - Preferably a DOT, but would consider a novelty. Depends on how they fit.

Iron Horse Helmets - All real DOT helmets will give you the mushroom look...Even ours. But, all Novelty helmets make you die fast if you crash in them.

Veldt helmet holders

This Veldt helmet holder could be one of the best and coolest ways to store your motorcycle helmet when you’re not using it.

Isle of Man helmet company Veldt now makes these “heads” that you mount on your wall to hang your motorcycle helmet.

They not only protect your helmet but also make a great “trophy” display in your garage or even your living room!

Since the helmet-holder is roughly the same shape as your head, it shouldn’t distort the lining or inner foam of the helmet.

The Veldt trophy helmet holder is not a cheap option at $US100, but it does look pretty cool.

Motorcycle Helmet discovery led to man flooding ex-wife's home

A DUNFERMLINE man flooded his ex-wife’s home in the middle of the night when he entered her house and saw a motorcycle helmet belonging to her boyfriend.

John Clark, 48, of Beatty Place, also ransacked her cupboards and freezer and stole two helmets. He appeared in the dock for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court last week.

Clark previously admitted that on June 29 at an address in Dunfermline, he did maliciously unscrew a sink drainage fitting, turn on a tap and leave the tap running, causing the kitchen and living room to flood and causing damage to the floor coverings and household items.

He also admitted that he stole two motorcycle helmets and did behave in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person fear or alarm in that he did enter the premises of his former partner, uninvited, and search through the cupboards and freezer.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf explained that Clark and his ex-wife have been separated for nine years and have five children together.

“One child came back home at about 11.30pm and the complainer wanted to go bed at that time, but she hadn’t seen her daughter come in so she left the patio door open,” Ms. Yousaf said.

“The accused had been consuming alcohol for most of the day and had sent a message to his ex-wife about her new boyfriend, who has a motorcycle.

“At 2.30am the accused entered the house and saw two motorcycle helmets and this angered him.

“He tampered with the sink’s drainage fitting, loosened the u-bend and left on the taps.

“When they woke the next morning, they found that the kitchen and living room were under water and the helmets had been taken.

“Nothing else had been taken and the complainer immediately thought it was the accused.”

The depute fiscal said the cost of the damage was £400 and the property was owned by Kingdom Housing. The cost of the motorbike helmets were $140 each.

Defense solicitor James Moncrieff said: “Mr. Clark has been going through a difficult time in his personal life. He is dealing with mental health issues and has been consuming up to a bottle of vodka a day.

“He does not remember a lot of the incident but he normally has a good relationship with his former partner.

“However, his circumstances had deteriorated and he had asked her for help.

“He is not someone with an extensive record and he’s now getting help with his mental health difficulties. He’s supported by his mother.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry deferred sentencing for three months for good behavior and to allow the prosecution and defense to calculate exactly the cost of the damage.
