Helmet Covers

Interested to know all your opinions on these Helmet Covers that make you look like a muppet (secretly looking for validation as I have just ordered one :P )

I think if it's your style, they're great for being noticed (and hopefully therefore not turned left in front of!)

What are your thoughts?

I saw a guy at a light with one. Funny as heck.

Keep in mind you now have no ventilation and added a pound to the helmet. It will only stay on up to about 40-45 mph is what he said. But Ive seen videos of guys on the freeway, so maybe they glue them on.

DON'T be surprised if people start thinking you're the COOKIE MONSTER, and start throwing cookies at you...!

I have the green one I wear on occasion just for laughs....it matches my bike...

In any event, it moves around a bit at speed and it does hinder your peripheral vision a little so its not something that you want on all the time....

this is not me, but this is what mine looks like

The one thing you have to be careful of is that when people stare at you while they are driving they inadvertently move towards you.

I think they look dumb. But I guess if you're trying to get attention and being seen, that's one way to do it.

I will not be using it near trees, but that's a good point!

I'll be trying it out in cold weather early morning commuting so that might be nice! (not the weight tho)

Hadn't thought of that, good point, almost too much of a good thing! 😄
