Half Scale model in the BOLLE DESIGN LAB
Half scale of the FURO and EXO
Full size 3D print
MIPS LFL development
Wind tunnel testing of 3D print.

The FURO MIPS & EXO cycling helmets were designed in tandem. The process began with tons of sketches and a few half scale foam models sculpted by hand. I quickly moved into 3D (solidworks) to print full size models and dial in the fit and to evaluate/refine the new Bollé design language aesthetic. I worked closely with engineering to solve any testing issues and the other numerous problems we encountered during the development process. The result is a highly ventilated lightweight cycling helmet that allows Bollé to compete in this highly competitive helmet market.
