POC’s Myelin Helmet $100
The Myelin is POC’s first helmet which has been constructed with 50% recycled material and where each component has been designed for recycling at the end of its life. At first glance it may look like a regular cycling helmet, but behind the Myelin’s clean look hides a host of advanced technical and design details, such as the innovative use of a fabric weave shell, no use of adhesives and a design for deconstruction, which allows the helmet to be separated into individual pieces at the end of its life.
Half of the materials used in the Myelin are recycled, and are secured together with strategically placed fasteners and a unique recycled fabric weave shell, eliminating the need for adhesives and laminated materials. This allows for the separation of individual pieces of material at the end of the helmet’s life. Once these fasteners are cut the helmet deconstructs into its constituent parts. Importantly it has been designed for deconstruction by anyone, simply, with the use of tools available in most homes.

When we first saw the Trxstle Geryon system, we didn’t know what we were looking at and that’s how innovative (i.e. kooky in a good way) design should be. This unique rack allows users to mount bikepacking bags, trail building tools, skiis, or even hunting gear to their full suspension bike with ease. While it might not look as clean and as minimal as a traditional rack and pannier setup, it sure does look intriguing. See more at Trxstle Geryon.
