lots of moving parts to fail. I still like Dahon's original the best.

IIRC, Biologic bought/licensed the existing design of the Pango folding helmet. Anyway, it's moot for Yanks, Canucks, Aussies and Kiwis as Biologic either has not ponied up for CSPS certification testing or the Pango can't pass those tests.

Is the Stash folding helmet still being built? Their web site doesn't seem to be live any more.

Some ideas should stay on the drawing board.

nah .. i find them somewhat intriguing, not for everybody , but better than nothing for sure.... I like the pango ... works pretty slick, just one problem, it doesnt come in my size ... ( lots of hot air needs a lot of room, hence huge head )
