Cardboard Bike Helmet Better than Plastic The cardboard Kranium beats regular helmets in almost every way Kranium is a bike helmet that is made from the same cardboard used for the boxes you find at the supermarket. This material, along with some clever construction, turns out to be a lot better at absorbing impact than the more usual polystyrene-filled lids.
