Brombton Freestyle

Im a fan of small wheel bikes, so it was fantastic to stumble upon this video and see what Team Clonc have been up to with the iconic Bropmton. I especially love the trick at the 0:13 mark - this adds new meaning to a folding bike.

Airbag Helmet for Cyclist





























This airbag / helmet designed by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin is phenomenal. Worn as a scarf, the airbag sits around your neck, and when activated by abnormal movements is inflated to provide the wearer protection.































In the video below you can see it in action, very cool. I am very impressed with the amount of work that must have gone into this concept.
