It’s not magic, it’s engineering
Closca: Your prêt-à-porter
“Change your outfit – interchangeable helmet dressing”
It is important to look good. Closca offers an accurate assortment of materials and finishes, detached from usual standards for cyclist equipment and closer to product and fashion trends. It’s another accessory of your own style.
“Reason loves emotion”
We work to provide design and innovation to the urban cycling community.
Carlos, Co founder, realized thanks to his wife, the common helmets were not adapted to the way urban cyclist live and understand the cities.
Closca redefines the cyclist helmet, wisely adapting it to the city, focusing on two important handicaps conventional helmets have:
– Excessive volume, which makes carrying it difficult after pedaling.
– A look that is cut off from the personal style of those who choose bicycle as their transportation alternative and do not want to compromise their style.
To develop this smart and elegant product, Closca teamed up with 2 great partners:
- The Polytechnic University of Valencia, one of best technologic centres according the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). Engineering and lot of talent to resolve the impact absorption, anthropometric and comfort design.
- Culdesac, creative partner for product deconstructing and helping to get a very sexy product.

“Our challenge: Urban Helmet Deconstruction“
Treating cycling as an icon itself, has inspired us to create an honest set, where form and function coexist in a balance, generating the personality of the product. So the helmet is explained intuitively by itself.
