9 out of 10 bike scheme cyclists don’t wear a helmet, even though 8 of them feel at risk. Their reason: the problem of carrying the helmet. Step up Morpher folding helmet.Morpher Folding Helmet Unfolded
The Morpher folding helmet is made from EPS and polycarbonate, the same materials as used in “normal” helmets, and carries the same safety certifications for the EU (CE EN:1078) and the USA (CPSC). These materials are lightweight as well which not only makes the helmet comfortable to wear but also easy to carry.
The ease of carrying is of course greatly aided by being a folding helmet and the Morpher folding helmet both folds and unfolds easily in an instant.
The Inventor of the Morpher Folding Helmet
Jeffrey Woolf OBE is an English inventor, businessman, journalist and innovation specialist. He is a SFEDI Gold qualified innovation consultant and is two times winner of British Inventor of the Year.
As a survivor of a major bicycle crash, he has spent almost 5 years in the pursuit of his dream of creating a better and more convenient helmet. He wanted to encourage more people to wear helmets and this wish is now being realised as many thousands of flat folding Morpher helmets have been sold around the world.
The innovative Morpher folding helmet folds down to an impressive 7.1cm at its widest point so it will easily fit into a laptop case, bag or briefcase so you no longer have to turn up to meetings with bulky cycling gear clanking around in tow.
Morpher Folding Helmet Wins Yahoo Award
Morpher’s Folding Helmet has just won the prestigious Yahoo Sports Technology Award. The Sports Technology Start-Up Awards recognise the best businesses and sports innovation technologies that look set to become game changers in their industries.
Jeff Woolf was delighted with the award, saying “It’s an incredible honour to win such a prestigious award and to be recognised by Yahoo and STA. This is enormous for us, as our small Morpher team are hard at work getting this life-saving technology onto the heads of as many cyclists as possible and this huge award is yet another powerful endorsement as well as a massive boost for us”.
Rebecca Hopkins, CEO of the Awards added “We started this initiative because the Start-Up category of the Sports Technology Awards was always very oversubscribed, suggesting that there was a clear opportunity to service this sector of the industry better. The Morpher folding helmet is a great example of the innovation and drive that we search for in our winners. The system of judging we use has become recognized as an international mark of excellence within the industry so we hope that the companies who have been successful here today will go onto become major players within sports.”
The Yahoo Sports Technology Award is the latest in a clutch of impressive awards won by Jeff and the Morpher team for their innovative, life-saving flat folding helmet.
Morpher has patents granted around the world, has CE EN:1078 and CPSC safety certification and is manufactured by one of the world’s leading helmet manufacturers. It is available online at Morpher for £109.99 including courier delivery or on Amazon and comes in a range of colours.
The Yahoo Sports Technology Awards ceremony will be hosted at The Roundhouse in London on May 3rd.
Morpher takes a different technological approach to the awkward problem of stowing a cycling helmet while not riding from their competitor Closca, which has 3 concentric rings that fold inside each other – which we mentioned earlier.
