The beanie helmet.


The Ribcap is a soft, flexible cap – part beanie, part helmet – that hardens on impact to protect the head from damage. The secret lies in the use of some clever new molecules in a tech called d3o, which lock together when hit and absorb the shock. Neat indeed. More here.

    It’s what forwards (and some backs) wear in rugby to cushion impacts, and especially to prevent cauliflower ears.
