San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
CLOSCA Helmets announced today the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund manufacturing efforts of its new product, the CLOSCA collapsible helmet, a unique bicycle helmet that utilizes cutting edge technology to allow riders to show off their individual style while being protected from the dangers presented to bike riding in urban settings. CLOSCA is utilizing the popular crowdsource funding website Kickstarter to fund production of the helmet and expand its reach across the globe: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/407904842/closca-urban-helmets.
The CLOSCA helmet is fully collapsible, reducing its size by more than 50% for easy storage in backpacks, messenger bags and computer bags. It is the only helmet of choice for those who are concerned with remaining true to themselves, allowing wearers to customize their look in two styles (duckbill and cap) and six fabric designs, as well as collaborations with clothing brands.
During the Kickstarter campaign, special covers will be available, ranging from animal prints to classic wool designs. All covers are interchangeable to be updated every time the rider feels the need to shake things up.
The CLOSCA helmet is not only compact and stylish, but exceptionally safe as well, having passed all safety tests. The helmet features EPP polymer specifically designed for high impact absorption, twenty-four air vents, an anti-fold system of 25mm wide straps across the helmet and quick release chin straps for comfort and ease.
“We are convinced the CLOSCA will encourage the use of helmets and the use of bicycles for transportation in congested cities,” says Carlos Fernando of CLOSCA. “The compact design is easy to stash in a backpack or tote bag, which is perfect if you use a bike share program like New York’s brand new Citi Bike system.”
Pricing during the Kickstarter campaign ranges from $70 for one CLOSCA helmet, cover and carrying bag, to $1200 for a custom made bike and CLOSCA helmet system. All items are manufactured in their facility in Spain.

About CLOSCA Design
CLOSCA Design is a startup company that came to life in early 2011. The idea for the CLOSCA helmet came from a heated argument on why people refused to wear bicycle helmets, even though it was the smart way to ride. Ever since, they began to work on the 'crazy idea' of designing a helmet that would fit in most purses, back-packs, saddle-bags, shoulder-bags and would become as much of a style element as shoes or belts. Designed by three Valencia Polytechnic University educated Industrial Engineers, the CLOSCA Design team backs every item they produce and create with pride. Learn more at http://www.closca.co.
