    I'm currently doing a project on a redesign of cycling helmets at my university. My supervisor, who cycles everywhere, says he will only ever wear a helmet when he commutes to and from college. His reason: the helmet is far too bulky and awkward to carry around, especially when he's down the pub!

    On the subject of helmet usage, I would love to hear what everyone here has to say, and would really appreciate it if you could take a few spare moments to complete a very brief survey that I have prepared for my project.

    Here is the link:

    Thanks a lot,

    The question about which things were important is slightly odd - I interpreted 'size' as meaning if it is the right size for my head (and this is therefore linked with comfort and with protection - it won't protect you if it is the wrong size).

    If (as I suspect, having read the OP again) it means 'size when carrying it around', then that needs to be made clearer in the survey. Just a thought.

    I don't see how you could make them much less bulky - just look at the size of motorcycle helmets!

    I wondered what happened to this as there was no moved thingy in commuting.

    Thanks everyone, really sorry for putting this topic in the wrong place. I obviously didn't look through the forum hard enough...

    Size refers to physical size, so yes perhaps I should have made it clearer. There are already some folding helmets on the market. One of my designs takes this concept and develops it further.

    A very short and basic survey for a university project - ask us some real questions about cycle helmets!

    Strange how none of these helmet surveys have nothing to do with safety, bit like cycle helmets really... :rolleyes:
