This type of foam recovers its shapes after first impact; therefore provide a protection of head against multi impact hits usually encountered in motocycle crashes. The density configuration to enhance ventilation. The new design shell, which may be of the conventional type or of a new bio-composite material. The said bio-composite shell can be made of reinforced natural fibers such as oil palm, or coca nut, or a combination of one of these fibers with common fibers such as glass, carbon, or polypropylene or the like. The said fiber are impregnanted in either thermoplastics such as polyester or thermoset such as epoxy resins.
