People say that true beauty comes from within. That is certainly true for the YAKKAY Smart One. The basic helmet is a modern classic with its stainless steel buckles and unique ventilating comfort pads. You can wear it like it is or cover it with one of the many stylish covers. This is the true spirit of YAKKAY: You decide what's right for you.
YAKKAY “SMART ONE” is a new smart design that differs by its rounded ear straps and adjustment buckles in polished stainless steel. But the real difference shows when one of the many different covers is attached to helmet – It changes from its characteristics of a helmet to a hat and becomes an accessory to your outfit.
You adjust the helmet to your head with a number of adhesive foam circles which have the added advantage that air can circulate between them. When you are riding your bicycle, air will be pushed into the helmet, and pleasantly cool down your head. In addition, your head will stay dry in rainy weather, as the covers are designed without open holes.
The helmet fully meets the European CE standard (EN1078). It is available in Small (53-55 cm), Medium (55-57 cm) and Large (57-59 cm).

YikeBike is an easily folded, taking little space, lightweight, electric bike. It’s a new solution for a city transport and a fresh experiment in design which we consider to be the best of bikes in 2010.
The YikeBike is electronically limited to 25 kph. It accelerates to top speed in just a few seconds. It’s quite a comfortable speed for moving around the city.
When you need to recharge it – it will take about 20 minutes for 80% charge. A full charge takes 40 mins.
You don’t need to worry were to park it – you just can fold it - with a bit of practice, folding takes less than 15 seconds and take it with you. The YikeBike weighs around 10.8 kg (23 pounds) with a full battery and air in the tyres. The folded dimensions are 150mm by 600mm by 600mm. The total folded volume is 43 litres. The folded YikeBike is considerably smaller than a typical folding bicycle and the fact that all of the mechanicals are enclosed reduces the risk of marking or staining clothing or furniture.
