From analogue to digital.
From previous projects we possess a strong working knowledge of helmet testing and regulation. This ensured that, from the very start of the project, the Explore helmet was fit for purpose, requiring minimal iterative development.
We create physical models and prototypes throughout the development process. This allows us to assess and validate the design but also, through test rigs, verify that the ergonomics are relevant to the use case. For instance, we thoroughly tested that the user can operate the buttons with gloved hands. Near the end of the process, small batches are produced and assembled in-house to guarantee that the product is fit for release.
The Explore project drew on all our core skills at Curventa from the initial stage of creating the brand guidelines through design development and then all the way to sourcing and liaising with manufacturing partners in the Far East.
