Bengok Helmet Created by the Local Community

A helmet is head protection that is used when driving, especially motorcycles. This makes helmets mandatory to wear when traveling. If we don’t wear it, usually, the possible risk is hitting the head when it falls or being caught by the police due to violating driving regulations.

As head protection, of course, helmets have certain standards. Helmets that meet the standards have SNI, Snell, or DOT standards. The difference is, SNI which is an acronym for Standar Nasional Indonesia (Indonesian National Standard) is issued by the National Standardization Agency (BSN). The Snell is a standard issued by a non-governmental organization called the Snell Memorial Foundation (SMF). While DOT is an acronym for the Department of Transportation. This standard is international because it was issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) under the United States Department of Transportation.

Based on the explanation above, of course, helmet products own high quality because they have their own standarization. However, do you know that helmets can be modified so that they have an aesthetic value but are still safe?

Indeed safety can be fun! Like one of the most unique products, namely Bengok Helmet. The quality of the helmet is the same as standard helmets. The difference is, the outside of the helmet is given a layer of water hyacinth that has been dried and woven by local communities around Rawa Pening. Of course, this helmet enhances unique value to the riders but does not take away the level of safety.

For those of you who are wondering whether this helmet is waterproof or not, of course, this Bengok Helmet is durable even when exposed to water as water hyacinth is a plant that comes from swamps that are wet and humid. Therefore, if you are interested in adopting this Bengok Craft, click for more.
