Right from its introduction in the 19th century to the present times, bicycle commuting has not only been one of the most economical means of transportation, but also provides numerous health benefits. While in the past biking was merely a way to commute from one place to another, its got a whole new dimension in the modern age – for some it’s a physical workout, for some it’s a means of exploring places and to some it’s a ‘Go Green’ statement.
With a growing biking trend, cyclists are also becoming more style and safety conscious. To address this, San Francisco based Mission Bicycle has created the Woodgrain Helmet. Unlike the gaudy looking helmets in the market, this stylish helmet has a wood-like look & feel. The helmet is made from a faux-wood or fancy plastic (techno-polymer injected helmet), yet has a very realistic appeal with all the lines and whorls present in the grain of real wood. The helmet features a leather chin strap and sixteen vents for efficient air circulation. Now, that’s what we call ‘Pedalling with style & comfort’!!
If wood is something that appeals to you, then you’d probably want to compliment your Woodgrain Helmet with Italian designer Pietro Russomanno’s wooden bike.
