Cool Looking Bike Helmets….Really?

Is that really a bike helmet?

Could there really be such a thing as cool looking, stylish bike helmets?  Well there are some new lids (helmets) out there that add some style to that otherwise weird looking piece of styrofoam that protects your head.

I just wanted to highlight a couple helmet companies that are making bike helmets a little less helmet like.

Yakkay Hemlets

Yakkay Bike Helmets

First off is the Yakkay helmets.  They really do look like your wearing a hat.  I have seen some helmets try to look like a hat before and they just haven’t seemed to have pulled it off.  Yakkay seems to have figured it out though!

Nutcase Helmets

Nutcase Bike Helmets

Next up is Nutcase helmets.  These still look like bike helmets, but they have a retro look with a bunch of different styles.  These seem to be popular with the urban hip crowd.  I like all the different styles they have.

Giro Surface Helmet

The Giro Surface Multi-Sport Helmet also comes in a variety of colors and styles (hardshell or fabric).  Giro is a well known brand in the bike racing realm.

Lazer Cityzen Helmet

Here are the Lazer Cityzen helmets, similar to Yakkay style but they are a lot cheaper; about half the cost!

Bern Helmets

And finally the Bern helmets, which kind of have that kayak helmet style.  Bern helmets have different liner kits that can be used for cold or warm weather riding.

What do you think?  Would you like to have one of these helmets? Do you know of some other bike helmets that are a cool looking?  Please share in the comment section below.

Thanks!

    When I rode in Ireland on a Whisper, the rental people supplies Yakkay helmets. Comfortable, and good looking.

    Problem…you cannot get YAKKAY helmets in the U.S. I bought one in Canada for $175.

    The Yakkay Helmets lack a bit of comfort but shure look great. Nutcase Helmes have both, comfort and great design!

    My wife and I love our Nutcases! We got tired of helmets designed for the spandex crowd>

    So glad to know we can get them in Canada. I had given up looking for a “normal” helmet!

    I like Yakkay helmets a lot, very original. A great idea to appeal safety to a growing market of women bike commuters.
