French designers Philippe Arrouar and Clément Cailleau have come up with a potential alternative to unattractive, bulky helmets.

Their design, the Overade, can fold up to one-third its size to fit into a purse or a backpack. The Overade is made from ABS plastic—the same material used for standard helmets—and will be available in black and white.

Arrouar and Cailleau are still raising the funds to complete their project. The helmet can be pre-purcha for $97 on the crowdfunding site Ulule.

The designers expect the Overade to be available for distribution in the spring.
