Something like this then?

I love that at least twice a year I find occasion to pull out my picture of the old SNL Gary Busey Helmet Protector.

Hövding is a bicycle helmet unlike any other currently on the market. It's ergonomic, it's practical, it complies with all the safety requirements, and it's also subtle and blends in with what else you are wearing.

This sentence has sold me on this product. I mean, it complies with all of THE safety requirements. That's really all we need to know, I can't wait to see this at Dick's Sporting Goods this fall, or on the miscellaneous Christmas gift racks in the aisles at Macy's, right next to the coin sorter and travel case of poker chips.
You've never really stopped even if you feel like you have.
