Hedkayse came to us with a single requirement: to create a helmet that can be stored in a bag easily.
By using our design process, we were able to transform the brief and develop a new material that not only folds, but is able to take multiple impacts and still remain safe for consumer use.
Because Enkayse dissipates energy rather than deforming on impact, it also cushions small bumps. Polystyrene can’t do this, since forces which are too weak to deform it are transmitted through.
Enkayse provides comfort in protecting from small bumps. This may also have long-term benefits as researchers believe the cumulative effect of small knocks contributes to brain disease over time.
