An American rider has invented a simple helmet stand which he is trying to have crowd-funded to go into mass production.
The Helmet Halo – not to be confused with the Halo Helmet – is basically a flexible but strong ring of “thermoplastic elastomer” that will support a helmet without fear of it rolling away, getting scratched or having a coffee spilt into it when it’s sitting on the cafe table.
So far the Kickstarter project has received a few hundred dollars in pledges towards its US$2500 goal to expand production with 28 days to go.
It looks like the Helmet Halo will cost about $20, according to the pledge formula, with free shipping within the US. There is no word of shipping to other countries.
The inventor says it will fit any size or type of helmet and can be folded up and kept in your pocket.
At present, it is only being produced in black, but they hope to be able to expand production to engine red, lime green, and deep blue.
