Helmets suck. They mess up your totally cool hairdo, add a little bit of extra weight to your ride, and totally take away the fun of just barrelling down the street on your bicycle like you're a kid racing around the cul-de-sac again. But they do have that whole life-saving function, so that's kind of rad.

Given that more people are getting to work with a little fun between their legs, protecting your neck (and the cabeza above it) has never been more important, because the only thing worse than showing up late for work is showing up dead. Thankfully, there are a lot of helmets out there with innovative designs that make them kinda stylish, or low-key, classic looks that any guy can rock without looking like he's one LIVESTRONG bracelet short of a Lance Armstrong.
