When you hear that they are making/selling a motorcycle helmet made out of cork, your first reaction of going to be surprise (at the very least). But there indeed is a manufacturer that is proposing a cork helmet.

The manufacturer in question is the Portuguese helmet maker Nexx Helmets Open link in a new window, and their helmet is made out of cork:- but not totally out of cork. The model is called Nexx Cork-X60 Open Cork-X60 link in a new window and basically it's a helmet made out of Advanced Thermo Resin (ATR) material, like many helmets, and the outer layer has cork around it. On its own, it looks pretty cool, but if you think about it, it's a pretty interesting idea.

How often have you had your helmet slam into a sharp object, like the edge of a table or something like that? The helmet gets scratched. With a cork exterior, it'll be more difficult.

Now my question is, what happens if you are riding in the rain? Not only will it get wet, but will it absorb water? That would be kind of funny, since your helmet will get heavier and heavier...

Nexx Cork Helmet

Price: Around €200/UK£160
