Too Cool! A Funky Accessory for Safety Helmets

Fohawx safety helmet accessoryWhat's a mom or dad to do when his child refuses to wear a safety helmet when bike riding, skateboarding, or even snowboarding? Make the helmet too cool not to wear!


Fohawx was inspired by a 7-year-old who refused to wear his helmet because it just wasn’t cool. The mission of the moms behind Fohawx was to provide a product that was hip enough to wear, while the helmets were protecting their kids’ heads. From long flowing strips fashioned like dreadlocks, to wacky and colorful punk shapes and high-top Mohawks, Fohawx are an embellishment that kids can add to any safety or bike helmet. With five styles to choose from (wavz, punkrox pink, punkrox yellow, dreadlox blue, and dredlox brown), kids can wear, collect, and swap Fohawx—easily switching them out and updating their collections. Available for $19.99; Fohawx (a New Jersey-based company).

Watch kids wearing funky Fohawx helmet pieces:

Which funky style would your child choose to wear? Let us know in comments!

This is a great way to encourage kids to wear a helmet since so many biking accidents involves head trauma.
Also, it is easier to track your child from a distance with a helmet that is so distinct from the norm!

You would not believe how many people do not wear a bike helmet! I work in an Emergency Department in a New Jersey hospital and I have seen too many horrible accidents! I encourage our children and anyone I see biking without a helmet to wear one.
FYI: The Gift Shop at Children's Hospital in PA offers helmet at a very low price for those who cannot afford it. WEAR A HELMET AND SAVE YOR LIFE!

Just saw you pitch your product on Shark Tank on ABC here in Orlando, Florida! I think this is a great product to encourage kids to wear bike helmets. I sometimes see families biking together around dusk. I think you should make some Fohawxs with embedded LEDs to light up the night because a lot of people who bike at night don't have any lights on their bikes. Best of luck to you!
