This helmet is extra strong, with layers of laminated bamboo, glued together. Our internal tests have shown it is stronger than any other bicycle helmets on the market. However it is not CE certified. See https://youtu.be/zmHL60UlI_o
Bamboo bends but does not break. Laminated bamboo -4 layers, is even stronger. Mekong+ and Mekong Quilts produce very reliable bamboo helmets with an EVA liner of 3 different thickness’s (10-12-15mm) to adjust for various head sizes and comfort. See the video which compares the strength of our bamboo helmets with an ordinary one. The helmets have not been certified yet, this is under process.
The making of the helmets is all by hand and involves a dozen different steps, all by very skilled women workers. The bamboo workshops provide employment to 20 people who have thus roughly doubled their income.
