Innovative Safety Helmets for Cyclists and Personal Mobility Users

Wink Helmets for Safety

Helmets are an essential item for cyclists and personal mobility users. This innovative helmet crafted by designer Wootae Kim, offers both functionality and style for personal mobility and cycling safety. These helmets are equipped with LEDs on the back, indicating the direction to pedestrians and drivers behind them. They are designed for easy use, operable simply by moving the head.

Featuring a sporty design, these helmets emphasize the back and air circulation, providing both safety and style. As the personal mobility market grows, accidents are also increasing, leading to a growing negative image of personal mobility. A significant percentage of accidents occur when users suddenly change direction without sharing their intended path with those behind them. These helmets aim to reduce such accidents by clearly displaying the user’s direction to others.

The helmets design embodies a sporty and large form, with detailed areas divided along corresponding lines to control the strength and weakness of the design. To visually guide pedestrians behind, the rear area of the helmet is enlarged. The charging port is discreetly hidden at the bottom, maintaining a neat exterior design. The charging LED connects naturally along the rear LED line, positioned for easy visibility so users can conveniently check the charging status.

The front headlamps light the user’s way, with a protruding shape at the bottom designed to prevent light from shining directly into the user’s eyes, allowing for more comfortable use. Operated by head movement, the direction LED automatically turns on when the head is tilted at a general angle of 45 degrees plus an additional 10 degrees, reaching 55 degrees.

This design enables users to naturally and safely activate the rear LED without moving their hands. For air circulation, there are holes on the front and back of the helmet. These holes are placed along natural lines to achieve a consistent overall design.
