Bike helmets may keep your noggin safe, but they’re not exactly the most stylish of accessories. Well, lookout bike paths! The new Bike Pretty helmet is a stylish hat with a underlying helmet to protect your head without compromising your fashion sense.
Styled after the turn-of-the-century “picture hat,” the Bike Pretty is, basically, a straw hat that was designed to fit snugly over the included YAAKAY helmet. And, with a three-inch brim, it not only keeps your head safe, but it can also protect your face from the sun.
The hat/helmet, which costs $179, meets all U.S. and European safety standards and is available in varying (adult-only) sizes.
Straw hat not your style? YAKKAY, a Dutch company that manufactures “brainwear for smart people,” has a whole line of super cool-looking helmets that come with “covers” to turn your head-protecting must-haves into stylish accessories.
