If you’re badass cat fans, “Neko Helmets” are created just for you. Produced by Russian company Nitrinos motostudio, this special type of badass cat ear motorcycle helmet is available in 12 different designs which all feature dual ventilation, a removable 100% polyester lining and of course, car ears. Those can be had for anywhere between $495 (N178,200) and $590 (N212,400) and can also be personalized to your wishes.
According to Nitrinos, even though fiberglass ears are firmly attached to the helmet body, they will be destroyed without any danger when accident happens. Furthermore, they’re performed of through type, so they will not generate extra resistance at 100 km/h.

Nonetheless, while all motorcyclists deserve comforts when riding, wind noise drives them to distraction at all time. Not only that, it can also do serious harm to the ears. As a result, rides have to find an alternative. In the market today, many products are specially designed to minimize the wind noise yet most of them do not seem to achieve success.

In actual fact, novelty motorcycle helmets are based on cat ears. In other words, the ear covers for half helmets are engineered to work in the same mechanism with the ears of a cat. Correspondingly, the cat-like fur in front of the helmet will deflect and dampens airflow from the motorcyclist’s ears, quite like the half helmet ear covers. Those covers can lessen the wind noise level (60%), but cannot completely stop it since they’re not meant to cover all the ears. Additionally, human ears are far different from cats’ and our ears can only work in low wind density and this is not compatible with a cycling speed. All things considered, seriously take your health into consideration before deciding to buy a badass cat ear motorcycle helmet.
