Is bike safety getting in the way of your personal style? Have you often preferred the prospect of a head injury instead ofâ€”god forbidâ€”helmet hair? Then step aside, Iâ€™m going to show you something that will twist the chain on your fixie.
Enter HÃ¶vding, the next revolution in bicycle safety wear that isâ€”dare I say itâ€”fashionable.

The â€œinvisibleâ€ helmetâ€™s designers, Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin have been shortlisted for the Design Museumâ€™s Design of the Year 2012 award and last year won a Danish design award.Â Not cheap at Â£355, itâ€™s perhaps the most dedicated of fashionistas who will invest in this product in its early stages. Although, you canâ€™t put a price on looking good, hey?
