YAKKAY helmet concept is awarded to the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany in both 2010, 2011 and 2012 - Nominee

Companies cannot enter for the Design Award; instead, they are nominated by the Ministries and Senators for Trade & Industry of the German States or by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. It is a precondition for this, however, that a product has already been awarded a national or international prize. No other Design Award sets its entrants such a strict criterion. Because of this the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany is known as the "Prize of Prizes".

The Judges panel statement:
A completely new approach. This is the first bicycle helmet you can really wear. It’s about fashion, being well-dressed, and humour. People who don’t want to cycle through town in cycling shorts and sporty helmets, but who want to look fashionable, at last have a chance to wear a bicycle helmet as well. It has already resulted in a lot more people wearing helmets in the countries where it has been introduced. So it has already proved that it is an important safety factor.
