Giro Sport Design and Philippe Starck Reinvent The Bicycle Helmet

Giro and Philippe Starck have unveiled a new helmet, designed to complement the debut collection of e-bikes by S+ARCKBIKE.

The Giro by S+ARCKBIKE helmet concept features a cork liner that offers excellent impact energy management and is harvested sustainably in Portugal without damaging the trees. Cork is also naturally water-resistant and offers significant anti-microbial properties. The shell of the helmet is formed in lightweight aluminum that can be easily recycled at the end of the helmet's lifespan.

"The increasing power of man and machine create new needs and new ergonomics that I have decided to take on with Giro, the most innovative player in this industry," Starck commented.

The new helmet is the first in a line of products that includes helmets and accessories designed to make urban cycling safer, more comfortable and stylish.
