Swedish accessories manufacturer POC has unveiled its Omne Eternal, the world’s first self-powered cycling helmet.

Utilising Powerfoyle, an innovative light-harvesting material that converts any light source whether indoors or out into energy, the helmet is able to power an automatic light that found at the rear, to enhance a rider’s road safety.

Unlike many modern technologies, the Omne Eternal is also extremely easy to use. In fact, its self-powering capabilities means it doesn’t need to be charged with a cable at all, and it switches on and off automatically.

POC and Exeger — the innovator and manufacturer of Powerfoyle — have also focused on crafting a helmet that includes this forward-thinking technology, without compromising design and aesthetics.

POC’s Omne Eternal will retail at €250 (approximately $300 USD) and be available online from June via the brand’s online webstore.

In other news, Specialized aims to deliver the perfect ride with the Aethos.
