Finally Someone’s Done Cool Bike Helmets

Big up the Danish company Yakkay. I’m so glad that someone’s made cycling helmets that don’t look like some piss-poor Tron rip-off or a bit of Super Mario fancy dress. It’s been on my list of things to sort out in the world for a while.

With the Yakkay system you buy the base helmet, and then you can choose nice covers for them…

YAKKAY - brainwear for smart people. Bicycle Helmet, cover, Izmir, Dublin, Paris, Tokyo.

I’ve got a couple of reservations though…

They might just look like really big comedy “It’s A Knockout” hats. How do I know this model hasn’t got a massive head that makes the helmet look OK?

And also I’m not sure that this looks like the most robust and safest type of helmet in the world. I wouldn’t trust myself to get the pads in the right places to save my life…

  1. they seem very female-oriented… I’d like them to man up a bit, then I’d get one!!

    dunno how you can man-up a bike helmet covering though….

  2. You should look at all the covers at the website. There are a couple “manly” enough, I guess.
    I got a Yakkay myself with an Orange cap-like cover. LUV it. Hate the I-sure-look-sporty-on-my-bike-so-I-need-a-Tour-de-France-like-helmet-helmets that are a lot of air with plastic strips inbetween. ;o)
