Most great ideas are born from a problem, and the Newlane is no different. 2 years ago, Josh was travelling between meetings in London on a hire bike. Sandwiched by two red buses and a motorbike without a helmet he thought ‘How can this be OK?’ He asked Dom, an experienced rider, if availability and portability of helmets was a problem. Dom agreed it was an issue that needed solving. They set out to create a truly packable and affordable helmet. They brought together a team of design engineers and manufacturing specialists, gathered insights from cyclists and scooter users to bring their vision to life. Now after 18 months of product development, the Newlane is almost ready.
In a world where sustainable transport is more relevant than ever, people need to be empowered to get moving in ways that protect themselves and our planet. The Newlane has been created to fit in with 21st century urban life.
