as the second generation of foldable helmets by valencia-based closca design, the ‘closca fuga’ was created in collaboration with culdesac. following on from the original ‘closca‘, the product is not only functional but is also stylish and attractive. its urban lifestyle look, rather than a sporty appearance, is enhanced further with exquisite choices of materials and finishes.

the ‘closca fuga’ which has been awarded the red dot design award, consists of three moveable rings that enables it to be folded in motion. leaving it flat and less than half of its initial volume, means it can fit into a briefcase, handbag and rucksack. its shape has been guided by the opinions, preferences and daily desires of city cyclists and meets the safety standards in the US, european and asian markets. the ‘closca fuga’ resolves two main drawbacks of conventional helmets, their bulk and their appearance.

  • Absolutely fantastic (for reasons I cannot fathom it reminds me of Captain Scarlet).
    Could the sections come in different colours e.g. red white & blue for the patriotic or red, gold & green for reggae fans?

    Adam Brocklehurst says:
  • Most modern bicycle helmets are not very bulky, and they certainly are more stylish than this ridiculous looking thing.

  • Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder…

    James says:
  • Oh, No! It’s Devo

    Modern Man says:
  • Awesome design! seeing this helmet its pure and simple lines remind me
    the lines of the Guggenheim Museum of Frank Lloyd Right in New York!
    Congratulations, really nice design!
