i get a lot of compliments on my red and white polka dot helmet by Nutcase. trust me, i love my helmet, it's fun, cute, and definitely gives a different quirky vibe to biking. i'm not a huge fan of wearing helmets but i do wear one on my commutes and i get a lot of cyclist and drivers smiling and saying "i love your helmet." I LOVE IT TOO!!
i remember my first helmet being pearly white which i decorated with a reflective bow on the back. in a way it became "me" while i added some fun stuff to personalize it. i love this helmet differently though not just because it's fun colorful and has polka dots but because it speaks a bit more about the fun side to bicycling. biking is fun and shouldn't everything else we do on it be fun too?!
i've seen a lot of cyclist make their helmets their own by adding reflective dots, stickers, toys, or dinosaurs. Nutcase designs really fun helmets too, which is probably why i went ahead and got of one theirs. if i was going to wear a helmet, i was going have to find a way to love it. i know i'm not the only one who hates wearing helmets why not have a little fun with it right?
do you do anything to make your helmet be a bit more "you?"
