08.07.2014 The Berlin Fahrradschau
The Berlin Fahrradschau was a great chance for Eva Vogel-Kaup and Thomas Schirmer to finally present their patented concept. Before it was not completely foreseeable what the story behind ‘’Rockwell – Headgear for cyclists’’ was. The secret is out: It is a new helmet with a 3 layers system – Hardshell, Softshell and Globe-Cushions. One might argue that the layer system is already used by other bike helmet manufacturers however Rockwell does not use conventional EPS foam but comfortable ‘’Globe-Cushions’’ which ensures that energy is absorbed up to a point after which energy can find its way through to your head. Moreover, the individual ‘’Globe-Cushions’’ conform to the shape of the cyclist’s head to provide a more comfortable fit. The damping cushions constitute the first layer. On that layer lies an intermediate layer, which is offered in 8 different colours.
The Hardshell on the other hand is available in 4 colours and can be easily combined. The helmets are primarily aimed at urban cyclists. Preparations and hard work for this innovation had been going on for two years. The helmets can be ordered in August directly from the website or in selected stores. The price is around 139 €.
07.07.2014 ISPO Brand New AwardThe Start-Up and finalist ''Rockwell Headgear'' at the ISPO Brand New Award 2014 highly deserved a booth at the ISPO in Munich. The company offers stylish and modern helmets with an innovative design, which provides much needed protection to the head. In selecting suitable materials, Rockwell rejected conventional EPS foam. Why is it that cyclists in cities or mountain bikers rarely wear a helmet? Two main reasons would be the wearing comfort and appearance. Together, the two founders Thomas Schirmer and Eva Vogel-Kaup of Rockwell based in Düsseldorf imagined how this could be changed and thus designed a headgear that does not only extremely functional but also looks good.
