Hedkayse was all started when our founders Tony Walker and Andy Creak were working in London and got fed up of cycling without a helmet between client meetings. As this was proving a challenge when working with big companies in big office buildings when bringing in your cycle helmet wasn’t trendy. Then when starting up new fintech companies this got even worse. As it was really hard rocking up to a client meeting selling a new fintech concept with a cycle helmet left in the corner of the room.
So they dreamt of a helmet that goes in your bag. Not that easy, you can make a helmet that collapses but the bit that keeps you safe is REALLY delicate. And cycle helmets get loads of everyday wear if you commute in them. Definitely not good if you bash them. Which is why cycle helmet manufactures recommend you replace your helmet every 12 months.
This meant Hedkayse needed to reimagine the material that keeps you safe. Not that easy as you need to protect when it is cold and very hot and most materials turn to a brick or jelly at temperature extremes. So after thousands of tests and hundreds of different formulations we discovered the answer which protects you again and again, whether it is hot, cold or wet. And we called this material Enkayse™️
