Motorist helmets exist, why aren't they deemed necessary?
Guilt transference, I reckon.
I think fighter pilots only wear helmets because they sit in an ejector seat. Which makes me wonder why no one has invented something simillar for the bike - an ejector saddle - something that could fire you 20' into the air if anything crashed into your rear wheel, certainly better to go over top of the truck that has rear ended you than to go under it.
And oxygen mask, radio equipment and head up display
Blimey! Was the van a write-off?
I did some damage to it that's for sure. My body shape in the windscreen like one of those cartoons when someone goes through a wall.
is that the jet fighter pilots helmet or the new cycling one ?
Seriously though is the head up display on the visor ? not that I have ever given it much thought but I had imagined it on the windscreen
Unlike cycle helmets, I haven't noticed any 'motorist' helmets on sale in Halfords, Wilkos, etc. Plus, it's easy for the non-cyclist to imagine us cyclists falling off left right and centre, just as they imagine they would should they straddle a bicycle.
Love to see them on cycle helmet. Those would actually protect the head
Both available. HUD is technically speaking on the aircraft. There are also systems that projects onto the visor.
Like this anti-theft version?
They were around in the 50s, 'Paddy Hopkirk' springs to mind,
Ah, but that's racing
There's this setup if you go down the HUD route.
If you believe this you didn't pay enough attention at school when they were explaining Venn diagrams.
