Our mothers have been saying it since before we ditched our training wheels: Don’t forget to wear your helmet! Reluctantly, we obeyed — but we dreaded having to wear them. Helmets were for total dorks. No self-respecting kid thought it was cool to cruise around the neighborhood with a clunky piece of foam and plastic (like this ugly thing) strapped to their head.

Of course, now that we’re all grown up, we understand: helmets save lives. But it’s still important to us that we don’t look like dweebs — especially when we’re riding around the city or commuting to work. Here are five urban commuter helmets that’ll protect your head in style.
