Has anybody bought or any experience of Yakkay helmets? Would you recommend one?

    OMG you've got to be kidding :shock: :shock: Each to their own I guess

    They look bloody hot tbh, I used to wear a skate style helmet for mountian biking, and soon changed it as it got as hot as hell after 5 mins or so. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like with a hat covering the ventilation holes

    Keeping the bonce warm would be something of a bonus actually as I'm as baldy as a coot.

    I've switched to a Specialized Skillet for the winter - not had a problem with cold at all! Used to carry the old skull cap in a back pocket, but never needed it. 8) Plus you can just stretch a wooly bobble hat over if you really really need it.
