The Custom Fit Helmet

With a name like James Cook it helps if you are pioneering by nature.

And he is - Elite international and Oxford University rower, James is the co-founder of Hexr - which began at University College London (UCL). James was working under leading material scientist Prof Mark Miodownik - predicating his research on the fact that:
"Cellular structures have the highest crush strength to weight ratio"
Perfect for a revolutionary bicycle helmet then. We were first introduced to James by a client some time ago. We are thrilled to be the first retailer in London trained to scan your head and help you buy your Hexr helmet!
