Cone-heads on the shelf


The cone-head helmet has hit store shelves in the United States and Europe.

The helmet, invented by Brisbane, Australia, physicist Don Morgan, uses cones of energy-absorbing material to better disperse the shock of impact.

CMG ran a story about the cone-head helmet back in 2007. Back then, Morgan didn’t know if he’d be able to find acceptance for his idea. Now, he has — and it’s on store shelves in the U.S. and Europe, and has won awards at Munich’s ISPO show and Indianapolis’s dealer show.

The helmet is for motocross and dirt-bike riders and is sold under the Kali Protectives brand.
