Dutch design practice Studio MOM is breaking the rules of cycling accessories with its new and highly innovative biomaterial cycling helmet. Unlike traditional helmets that utilize polystyrene and other usually unsustainable materials, Studio MOM’s version embraces mycelium (the network of threads from which mushrooms grow) and hemp for its design. The mycelium forms the main shell of Studio MOM’s biomaterial cycling helmet, while the hemp textile is featured in the outer skin and the straps.

According to the studio, MyHelmet reduces ecological strain from manufacturing as it can be produced without fossil fuels. It also ensures less waste at the end of its life as it can be composted after use. The biomaterial cycling helmet is definitely a sustainable game-changer in the biking industry, especially as individuals are instructed to change their helmets every three to five years.
