Helmets that Stink When They Need to Be Replaced

This just in, from The Register: helmets that emit a stench when it's time to replace them.

What if they just stank right out of the box? Stink: the new carbon fiber.


  1. Somehow, I suspect few would want to pay a premium for such a helmet.

  2. Maybe they could just make it smell like a lemon.

  3. Uh, what a weird conversation would result:

    "Whew! You need a bath and your clothes washed, BluesCat!"

    "Naw, that's just my helmet, and its SUPPOSED to do that."

  4. I was thinking durian fruit smell would do it. But, then imagine if you crashed, such that you got road rash and smacked your helmet on the pavement, but could still ride home. In that case, you'd be bruised, battered, and smelling like garlic death fruit. I'm with Steve, I don't think I'd pay a premium for that.
