What is this? 10

Anybody want to take a guess?


UPDATE: Yes, it’s a bike helmet with zip ties attached to it, but it has a name. Hint: It’s named after what it does.

    Looks like a bicycle helmet with some zipper ties attached.

    The exoskeleton of an alien from Titan, Saturn’s moon.

    I believe it’s a Giro bike helmet with some black zip ties attached.

    headache…zip head

    it helps to keep alligators and elephants at bay when cycling in moncton…try it betcha never see an alligator or elephant near your bike…

    the zip ties assist in lifting your helmet from you crushed skull after some idiot driver in their four wheeled cage has driven over you…it is a lid lifter…for a tidyer body removal…

    I am sure it is some form of artistic expression which is the result of numerous provincial and federal grant aquisitions…

    or it is someone trying to reattach the hard shell to the foam inteirior….

    I believe the name associated with this helmet is “the retardinator”.

    Protects you against magpie attacks?

    Good work, Happy!

    Yes, it’s a magpie deflector. Watch this video (with the sound down) to see it in action:


    Australian magpies attack cyclists all the time. I was attacked on my bike by a crow last week — or maybe it was a raven. It was big and considerably more menacing than a magpie.

    Apparently the best way to prevent attacks: take off your helmet, if you dare. I’ll ask my friend in Australia to test out the theory.
