    Giving Thanks By The Helmetful

    In the U.S. and in Canada, Thanksgiving is not only a time to hang out with family we may otherwise seldom see, and eat…a lot. It also begins the long lead up to the winter holidays in December. Most of all, Thanksgiving is meant as a time to count our blessings – and we’re giving…

    Packing For The Trip – How To Avoid ‘Helmet Hair’

    If you didn’t know it yet, at Nutcase Helmets we are all about making helmets that are intrinsically fun to wear.

    It’s Electric-Assist! And No, I’m Not A Lazy Cyclist

    I was 33 weeks pregnant the first time I got on an electric bike. I went to ride up an incline in a 100-pound cargo bike; I had the thought “Oh no, I will not be able to do this.” Then the electric assist kicked in, and I fell in love. E-bikes or electric bikes…

    Get Wet In Nutcase Water Helmets – Now 25% Off

    While our Nutcase Water Helmets may look very much like our other helmets, there are a few differences under the lid. The first thing to notice is the extra-thick and water repelling ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) lining, measuring a hefty 2.5 centimeters at the front and the back of the helmet. We also have a…
