    HATS OFF – HELMETS ON

    We never know exactly where we’ll see Nutcase helmets pop up, and so we LOVE it when Nutcase helmet wearers or one of our band of loyal and excellent distributors sends us photos of Nutcase spottings. And so we were excited when we first heard from our German distributor about the widespread advertising campaign in…

    Definitive Guide to ‘Helmet Hair’ and ‘Helmet Head,’ Part I

    Helmet hair and helmet head – these are two fairly substantial reasons that people talk about when they say why they chose not to wear a helmet when they ride their bikes and scooters or do other other active outdoor sports. The idea of taking off your helmet and having a lopsided, strangely shaped, or…

    Helmet Art, Part II:
    Blue Sky’s The Limit

    As many Nutcases might know, the Artists’ Series of helmets that we implemented for the first time  (and which will debut for sale around March 2015) is one highlight in a year packed with new products and innovation. Learning how to put complex helmet art onto spherical shapes has inspired us. As we described in…

    Hoo! Hoo! Halloween Helmets

    Yup, it’s that season again – that short period between the start of school and winter when strange scary tableaux appear on your neighbors’ front porch and someone you know takes a trip to a pumpkin patch. It’s also a time of costumes! Halloween costumes seem to get every more elaborate (and since the permanent…

    Relax And Enjoy Your Ride

    There are certain things we as human beings want to happen really fast: roller coaster rides, dentists’ visits, and the pain of childbirth, to name just a few. We’re currently a culture that seems to value speed highly. That tends to extend to the morning commute, too. Collectively we’d rather sleep later and arrive faster…

    Let It Snow – Or Shine! – With Little Nutty Snow And Bike

    For most of us in the northern hemisphere, the advance of the seasons toward winter is apparent with shorter days, longer nights, and new television episodes. There is a consolation, if we can happily transition from the summery sports like biking, skateboarding, and scootering to the skiing, snowboarding, and other fun pursuits of winter. Luckily…

    There’s A Squirrel In The Box

    Surprisingly, many new Nutcase helmet buyers don’t know about the origami surprise in every helmet box – the punch-out squirrel mascot we fondly call “Punchy.” Punchy’s design is the result of the Nutcase creative team wanting to make sure unpacking our helmets is as fun as wearing them. Before the release of our Gen3 helmet…

    A Helmet for America’s New Number One Biking Town

    There are good reasons New York was named Bicycling Magazine‘s top U.S. cycling city in that publication’s October 2014 issue. In the space of a just a few years New York has built 350 miles of bikes lanes; launched a bike share program that now has nearly 100,000 members; and doubled its commuter rate between…

    September 23, 2014 As anyone who hangs with the Nutcases at HQ tends to find out pretty quickly, our brand is built on a single helmet inspired by an Oregon State University Beavers versus University of Oregon Ducks football game called the Civil War. Our founder Michael Morrow is a diehard and unabashed Beavers fan,…
