Melon helmets win RedDot Design award 2014


Red Dot Award 2014 – and the winner is … Melon®!

March, 26th, 2014, Essen: with their outstanding design and product features, Melon® Urban Active bicycle and roller sports helmets set new standards. An international, high profile jury of 40 experts thought the same and have awarded the Melon® helmet collection the Red Dot Award 2014.

The Melon® multi-sport helmet is, after all, not only stylish and great-looking but also fulfils all the requirements of contemporary urban and sports use with its symbiosis of retro design and high tech features. In this way, Melon® Helmets also preserve the popular skatestyle of the 80s for the future.

The proven in-mould outer shell from professional bicycle racing combined with anextra reinforced polycarbonate construction ensures a weight reduction of at least 30% compared to standard helmets in this category*. Many extras ensure a high degree of comfort, user friendliness and safety: MACS Cooling System, breathable and washable COOLMAX® padding in three labelled strengths and three helmet sizes, adjustable straps, Fidlock® magnetic buckle, 3M reflex logos and integrated straps anchor.

From the 7th July 2014, the Melon® Urban Active Helmets will also be on display, together with the other prize-winning products, in the exhibition “Design on stage” in the Red Dot Design Museum in the world heritage site “Zeche Zollverein” in Essen.
