InventHelp Inventor Develops Safety-Enhancing Feature for Bike Helmets (FRO-413)

Share Article

Based in Pittsburgh, Pa., InventHelp is submitting the REAR VIEW EARS to companies in the hopes of their good faith review.

An inventor from Merced, Calif., wanted to make it easier for bicyclists to hear ambient noise, particularly sounds coming from behind them. As such, he developed the REAR VIEW EARS – a modification to bicycling helmets that would shield riders' ears from onrushing wind.

REAR VIEW EARS are incorporated into a bicycle helmet to reduce wind noise for the wearer. This feature would make it easier for a cyclist to hear ambient sounds, which would ultimately enhance safety. Such a feature would also improve communication among cyclists who were riding in groups, and would enable racing cyclists to better hear opponents approaching from the rear.

The inventor was inspired by a need to make bicycling safer. “When traveling faster than average speeds, bicyclists can experience considerable amounts of wind noise,” said the inventor. “A simple modification to a bike helmet would reduce wind noise in a cyclist’s ears, which would make ambient sounds clearer and thus enhance safety.”

The original design was submitted to the Fresno office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
