A bike helmet so cool, we can’t keep it under our hat… or can we?

Reading the recent Cool Mom Picks post about awesome family-friendly bicycles had me dreamily clicking through images of families on bikes and imagining myself pedaling my kids through our neighborhood.

Only, with the most awesome bike helmet ever made.

Yakkay Helmet





And that’s exactly when I first saw it: the bike helmet of my dreams.



Now, I have always been a helmet-wearer. Hair-, image- and
outfit-be-damned. But I know there are people out there who have more fashionable priorities. And I get it.  (Kind of.) Helmets are ugly. They’re bulky. And they don’t match cute outfits.



Until now.



These amazing helmets from Yakkay are unlike any helmet I’ve
ever seen. They’re created in Denmark which is how you know they’re cool. That’s
also where they ship from, it seems, unless you’re lucky enough to have a
retailer near you. You just pick the helmet color and size (there’s adult and child) choose from all kinds of
covers, resulting in a helmet that looks remarkably like a stylish hat. Really, it does. I’m partial to the Paris Herringbone, but the Tokyo Rose is pretty awesome, too.

Yes, it’s a hefty price for a bike helmet when you could get a
perfectly decent traditional helmet for much less. But as far as I’m concerned, if it’s
the difference between someone wearing a helmet and someone not wearing
one, it’s not such a high price to pay, after all. -Stephanie S.

Yakkay bike helmets are available from their web shop in Europe, and they ship anywhere. In the US you can find them online at swanky bike shop Adeline Adeline.

If you want to try one on, hey’re also available in North America in select retailers.

    I adore these helmets, absolutely so cool….I went through your link to purchase, but I cannot tell how much they cost in American dollars. Is there a way to find this out before I hit “submit.”
    Thanks a bunch! Tish

    Hi Tish, you can click the link to find a retailer near you and ask for pricing. In the US they’re avail at Adeline Adeline and it looks like adult covers are $65 (not including the helmet) and the shipping will be less.

    On Yakkay itself, the helmets are 40-47 Euros. A Euro is about $1.25 right now.
