Bike News Roundup: Cheap bike share helmets made from newspapers

It’s time for the weekly Bike News Roundup! First up, could these very cheap helmets made from old newspapers help give bike share users the option of wearing a helmet (could be sold for about $1.50)? Would they pass US helmet standards?

    “paper helmet” I doubt it would pass the US standard, it’s because the helmet material is too dense. What makes a foam helmet work, is that the foam crushes and absorbes the impact. It’s not the abrasion that kills you, it’s the impact.
