At the Cycle Show NEC this year, we were very lucky to have been provided with lots of new products to test, which were being launched at the show.
We spoke to RockiNoggins last year and it was great to finally have the chance to bring one of their very contemporary helmet covers back to the office this year.
They are very passionate about their products, especially as they have first hand experience in treating patients who have suffered brain injury. They want to try and encourage more people to wear helmets, by providing them with funky and practical helmet covers.
The helmet cover we tried, fitted our helmet perfectly and actually also provided extra warmth to , which is not part of their USP when selling them. The feedback we have received from people who currently don’t wear helmets as they don’t like the way they look, said that they probably would start to wear a helmet if they had a funky, fashionable helmet cover to go with it.
Our opinion about these helmet covers is, that they should be promoted and made available to purchase in the UK and that it might encourage more people to start wearing helmets and think about the safety benefits that a helmet can actually provide, rather than worrying about how they look.
The material is stretchy so it fits over the helmet easily and the water resistant ones, are actually water resistant.
The ‘birth’ of Rockinoggins is detailed below, which can be found on their website. www.rockinoggins.com
The Birth of RockiNoggins Helmet Covers
As an acute care nurse who has had exposure to patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI), my passion is to stimulate helmet usage by making it fun, fashionable and purposeful. I have partnered with Brain Injury Association, a non-profit organization which provides assistance to patients and families affected by TBI.
RockiNoggins is the designer and manufacturer of helmet covers for existing bicycle and other sports related helmets.
RockiNoggins helmet covers are designed in Seattle, WA and are US patent pending.
