Want to spruce up your bike helmet? Switch over to Oshare-heru

6 Comments

In recent years, the Japanese government has been pushing for all cyclists to wear helmets when biking. Following last year’s helmet shortage, there are now many different kinds of helmets to suit any age or gender.

One standout is Oshare-heru (fashionable helmet), a “customizable” helmet that allows you to add hat attachments. Developed by the brand Cojit, the Oshare-heru is a helmet made for adults that comes in a variety of colors. It’s easily adjustable and comes with removable padding to keep it clean. Beyond just the basic functionality of a helmet, Oshare-heru aims to not only keep you safe but also have you look good.

For rainy days, there’s the water-resistant rain hat attachment that comes with reflective tape on both sides. When it’s sunny out, why not don a straw-like UV hat attachment? If you’re after a more feminine silhouette, the crochet attachment was made to enhance your natural faceline. Switching from one attachment to another can be done in three simple steps. 

The helmet itself is ¥6,380 while the different attachments are ¥3,850 each.

That’s a helmet?

If it didn't flatten my hair that took time to set in the morning, I would get me one. Don't want to wear a suit to work with a flat hair...

If it gets more people to wear helmets when cycling, great. Many people don't like to wear cycle helmets simply for the aesthetic.

Quite spendy, though. My horrible lime-green lid from Don Quixote was about 2000 yen. Hopefully it does the job when needed.

Helmet shortage? Not on the planet where I live. Plenty of stores online that offer nice helmets. These things are for female mamachari riders, as the picture shows, not for serious cyclists. Way overpriced as well.

A helmet is one of those things that you really shouldn't cheap out on.

Thanks for your concern, and you're right.

It does have the appropriate safety standard stickers for Japan (JIS T 8133:2015) and internationally (ISO 8871:2012) though. Otherwise, they probably wouldn't be able to sell it.

Let's hope I never find out;)
