They're kind of steep ($160?) for a helmet. I personally will stick to my current helmet, which is from Helen's (thank you UCLA Transportation for the $20 off coupon). But I wanted to feature the Yakkays because the look pretty cool. Check the Yakkays out today at Flying Pigeon LA, 3714 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065.
