I’ve got it into my head that I need a cooler bike helmet.
I do the majority of my biking in regular street clothes because I’m often going to the library or store or to drop something off. Sure I wear sporty clothes on the way to the gym and for long recreational bike rides but most of my bike rides involves jeans or dresses and leggings (my new thing). My regular sporty bike helmet just does NOT go well with this type of biking and makes me feel dorky when I wear it.
Hence, I want a new bike helmet!
I’ve been looking online for new helmets and wanted to share a few here. I’d love opinions on them in the comments. It’s always good to get some second opinions before a purchase so let me know what you think of these helmets and which is your favorite!
I really like these 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.
Nutcase Silver Sparkle Bike Helmet (sort of love this one the most!)
I like the Yakkay helmets since they seem to have perfected the idea of a helmet that looks like a hat.
I love the Lazer Cityzen helmets. These are cheaper helmets than Yakkay that look just like you are wearing a hat! My favorite from them:
I also really like Bern helmets which have different liners so you can use it for summer and winter things. For instance I could use it to bike and snowboard if I wanted to try cool tricks boarding (I normally don’t and don’t wear a helmet).
Bern has a bunch of different styles regarding visor or not but the basics are the same. They have a variety of colors too.
I also like this Disco Ball Helmet from Instructables, that is if it was safe to actually use as a real helmet.
Helmets covered in glass are a bad idea. ;)
As you can tell, I like sparkly things. I’m leaning toward getting the sparkly nutcse helmet because I think it will make me happy to wear and match too. It’s cute and would be perfect for when I’m bike commuting in Memphis.
Let me know in the comments which one you like best!
