As part of my Master’s course, I worked on a project where we researched and designed what we hope will become the new standard of riding helmets. With help from our industry sponsor, we developed a helmet which would increase the safety of the rider, whilst reducing the helmet weight. Being a part of a research project with industry influence was amazing.
