Get in Gear: Yakkay Bike Helmets

Many folks still, though it boggles my mind as to why, refuse to wear a helmet when biking. Some are worried about messing up their hair on not looking like a fashionista while wearing a helmet. As my mom, and former R.N., always said, "A helmet is a lot more fashionable than a halo brace." But I digress . . .

For those looking for a helmet that's a little cooler, and pricier, than your average helmet try on a Yakkay for size. These smart helmets are basically a very simple, but safe, helmet fitted with a cool hat-like cover. Unfortunately the helmets seem to be only available overseas at the moment, but you can order one online for about $177 (or 120 Euros) plus shipping. I'm loving them — but my Specialized helmet seems to be working just fine for me right now. Maybe when they make their way stateside I'll invest in one for my days when I am cruising around town rather than working to get my heart rate up. What do you think?

Cute idea.

Way cute. Maybe if I find it cheap on eBay. This is perfect for everyday commuting.

These are very cute! I am a bike commuter - I don't mind wearing my helmet when I'm riding for exercise, but I hate wearing it when I ride to work. These caps are a very nice alternative!

I don't really like it unless they have one that looks like a bowler hat. I would be fine with wearing a regular helmet anyway.
