Closca's odd nesting helmet has come a long way since its Kickstarter debut and early releases, and now it's ready to keep folks riding through nesting season. The space saving design has a simple Devo-y appeal, and the new accessories add cold weather dexterity to that chunky collapsible shape.

The new "Brilliant" visor adds reflective chops and color options, and snaps straight into the Red Dot logo looking helmet with a nearly unnoticeable profile.

The sweatery "Nordic" ear cover option comes in two gloomy weather colors and provides quaint fall texture. If anyone ever invents an integrated ear cover that doesn't look like part of an Ugg boot they'll deserve a Red Dot of their own, but these blend clean modern and cozy looks and get the job done. The helmet still folds down to half its full height, and the sweater tucks neatly within.

While the brand has described the helmet itself as "immutable" while in use, every time I look at these things I find myself wishing the top dome logo was a keyhole to lock the helmet in place while open. Maybe the addition of sweater parts will add stiffness.
