    Zen And The Art of Nutcase – Photographer Jan Sonnenmair

    As anyone who has tried to take pictures for publication knows, there’s much more to fantastic photography than meets the eyes.

    Family Biking Needs Kidical Mass

    From guest blogger Dena Driscoll Kidical Mass is a great way to help get more families biking. This kid-friendly, family-loving bicycle ride originated in Eugene, Oregon in 2008. Although the name may imply the lawlessness of Critical Mass (just pint size) Kidical Mass rides are actually fun, law-abiding rides that are more parade then protest. The…

    Wants To Talk To You!

    At Nutcase Helmets HQ in Portland, Oregon, we are kind of a nutty crew. With a view of Mt. Hood out one set of our office’s panoramic windows, and a peek at the train tracks out the other, we’ve got majesty on one side and the steady wheels (and long whistle!) of commerce on the…

    The Artist Speaks #3

    Nutcase Unframed 2015 Artist Tiago DeJerk, 35, sees his stencil-based art as one of the most ‘democratic’ of art forms. “It was an extension of my drawing and painting,” Tiago said. “Before I really knew about stencils I was sewing shapes and textiles together to make a kind of template for images – pretty much…

    The Artist Speaks #2

    Few people can boast a giant slice of tree as the best way to simply and succinctly tell their story. Yet for Unframed 2015 artist Carla Bartow, that tree slice (below) is natural résumé display material, as the natural world and the great outdoors are the biggest influencers of her artwork. (That, and classic black and white…

    Helmet for Sledding? Yes!

    Hills + snow = irresistible sledding opportunities. And sometimes there’s no better recipe for pleasure than a hill of fresh snow and a sled to ride it down on. It’s a winter treat that is universally loved. But these days, one that is also causing concern for parents, as well as the occasional ban by cities when they get…

    Science Says: Love Your Brain, Wear Your Helmet

Human activities are full of different risks, and how we choose to respond to those risks is usually cultural, rather than exclusively logical. At Nutcase Helmets, we endeavor every day to make our helmets so fun and well-fitting that people just love to wear them.…
