Made from textile
“Made from textile instead of rigid materials, the “TopUp Head Protection” for cyclists and walkers is an exploration of the honeycomb pattern and device a protective gear for the head.

The honeycomb was an obvious choice for its impact resistance and shock absorption qualities.

Obligatory safety warning
I would be remiss if I didn’t pass on this reason for wearing a helmet. Regular readers can tune out. You’ve heard it before.
