Hey all,

I am an Industrial Design student at the Rochester Institute of Technology and am currently working on designing a BMX helmet for a project. My goal is to design the best helmet possible in terms of styling and protection (specifically concussion protection or low impact hits). I ride mostly road so BMX is a little foreign to me, so I would appreciate any suggestions or ideas that you have. If you have problems with current helmets, if there is something that you want that isn't addressed in current helmets, if there is a style or look you would like to see I want to know. Any help at all would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the help

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves! It’s crazy!-Trey Jones

Hey man, great idea! One of my main problems with helmets is the bulkiness. They are way too big. I think you could fit the protection into a small package. Also, dont use that hard foam. Use the stuff they use in 1080 hellmets. It is awesome. Thanks for helping out bmxers!

in terms of aesthetics etc
pretty much everyone likes the shape and look of protec helmets
i've also heard that the foam of the triple 8 brainsaver helmet is very good cause it soaks up sweat or something

No, sorry man. I am a junior there. For some reason the freshman are located in a different part of the building and we don't interact.

i do know of a padding thats soft almost like foam but when it hits a hard surface it stiffens up and almost hard like a normal helmet i think they use this for snow boarding i dont know what its called tho but might be a good idea for a helmet thats slim but still protective try looking it up on Google
