Citbikes have been a massive shot in the arm for bicycle riding in New York and of course having a bike helmet when riding one is not compulsory.
But let’s face it, self- preservation requires any bike rider to be sensible and get one. But oh the horrors of helmet hair etc, etc.
Fear not, New Yorkers and others have never been backwards in spotting an opportunity to make money, and so it is that many brands have starting selling fashion conscious helmets that are safe and don’t mean you end up with hair flat to your skull.
First where to go to find a great range of bike helmets? Online check out Eleanor’s Stylish Accessories, Adeline Adeline, Public Bike and Bicycle Habitat. Some have brick and mortar sites and some don’t. Also Target has a good range that’s cheap.
For those who are serious about preserving their hair style at all cost your best chance is the Invisible Bicycle Helmut by Hovding: it’s great but expensive. See the video for a demo.
Gone are the days of sleek, aerodynamic models for city biking, instead make a fashion statement and stay safe at the same time. LIKE have bike helmet choice in New York
