These hand-painted helmet masterpieces are the work of Belle Helmets. The New York City-based artist behind the company Danielle Baskin began applying her artistic talents to protective head wear in an effort to "promote safer transportation alternatives through fashion." Who wouldn't want to observe bike safety laws when you have a helmet that looks like this?

Sturdy and stunningly beautiful, Belle Helmets are the ultimate way to ride green in style. Her sources of inspiration range from the solar system to the debunked science of phrenology, so there really is something for everyone regardless of age or gender. Her helmets will run you anywhere between $100 to $250, but if you provide your noggin' protector, the price will drop. Road safety has never looked so good. Thanks to Belle Helmets you'll never resist your helmet again.
