    Lazer Urbanize Helmet?

    Does anyone have an image of someone actually wearing one of these? The idea of a helmet designed not to make you look phallic interests me.
    Companies should really consider showing their products in use rather than just empty product shots. (sorry....vent)

    Just get a helmet and ride. Other cyclists don't care and why do you care what the fat slobs in SUV's think anyways?

    Besides, helmets make people look like mushroom heads, not dick heads.

    If anything that helmet gives me a major phallic image.
    While normal helmets do not.
    I love my Atmos.

    I do wear a helmet already. I am looking for something I like better.
    Phallic/mushroom.....you get the idea. No need to split hairs.
    I don't care what slobs in SUV's think, nor what other riders think. I am looking for something I like.
    I know other people have discussed the ugliness of helmets to some length(which I agree), so I am trying to find feedback on this one.

    Fragglerock... If you don't know what the helmet looks like, then you obviously wouldn't have a picture.
    If you really need to know, then look it up.

    I'm not crazy about the look, but all I could find was the photo they're using in their ad campaign


    You're unlikely to find alot of photos of people showing off their helmets because helmets generally look pretty silly, even this one.

    You are probably right about that. That is the only image I could find as well.
    It is hard to tell what it looks like without a closer image, but it's probably still not that great.
    It is good to know that someone out there is trying something different.
