Nutcase Helmets Review and Links To Purchase

I am a pretty active Mama Bear. I indulge in many outdoor sports and recreational activities which means I have a selection of helmets. I have been in some pretty extreme accidents- some as a result of me exceeding my skill set and some as a result of other people not being present. This hasn’t just been my experience either. My 7 year old has ginger hair and has a spirit, energy and tenacity as fiery as his beautiful long bright orange locks. This sometimes yields situations where a helmet proves a priceless investment when his desire for action supercedes his understanding of consequence. I love to see his fearless approach and he inspires me every day with his energy that yields itself to feels of unlimited possibility.

No matter the causes of our recreational mishaps, having a helmet has saved my life on more than one occasion and certainly kept my son’s magnificently expanding brain intact. These direct experiences are why I am an advocate for head protection and injury prevention awareness.

Here you will find a thorough review. I will provide many reviews here on this site and in order for you to understand where I am coming from you can read my intention with product promotion and reviews here.

The first one is a nutcase helmets review.

Helmet 1 : Nutcase Street (Variety of Nutcase Street Helmets Available:

This helmet is designed by Nike’s former creative director Michael Morrow. Nutcase helmets are just all kinds of cool. He has created quite a unique style and branding for helmets for bicycle enthusiasts, skateboarders and snowboarders to rock out in while indulging in their recreational activities. I chose to review this one first because for our crew, these really resonate with our vibe. They are safe, fun, durable and super stylin’! The pic above depicts our first set of helmets by GIRO which you can read here: (insert link to next review)

My number rating scale for reviews is measured on a scale from 0 to 7 because that is the number I use. 0 being total fail and 7 being oh yeah mmmm ooooh yummy those are them super yummy oh so good feels.

The Overall Rating of This Nutty Little Helmet and Range of Nutcase Helmets is a solid 6/7 up in the heart chakra.

Quality: 6/7

The technology these peeps use to design and manufacture their helmets are of a supremely high quality. The dynamics of the energy absorption of impact to the helmet vs the skull/brain can keep you feeling rest assured that you and your little loved one’s noggins will be effectively protected. 7/7 on that action.

Little Baby Nutcase Styles – All Kinds of Good Feels!!

In terms of quality I would give this helmet a 6/7 star rating. The quality is great, and a good bulk to it. Some may deem the helmet a little top-heavy, but I am a sturdy gal and my lil dude is all kinds of stability, that the heaviness and bulk do not impede our ability to ride and enjoy, but I did hear one gripe or two from a moderately physically active companion co-pilot that the weight was a bit too much for her delicate head and neck – so I take one star off out of respect for those with a little more delicacy to their physiology.

Everyone is different and I am a pretty hardcore active enthusiast, propelled by my desire to maintain optimal mental health – so if you maintain a good exercise regime and are engaged in consistent physical fitness, and dare I say, a good head on your shoulders, the weight of the helmet should prove to be of no issue. At least it isn’t for me and it isn’t for the little orange haired fireball beauty that is my son Max who loves The Evil Kneival Feels of this Nutcase Helmet

Fit: 6/7

For me, I have a pretty big melon, ( I like to think of myself as big brained but I am pretty sure it is mostly water up there) This helmet accommodates that part of my physiology really well. The helmet comes with removable self-adhesive padding to assemble the fit to your head shape specifications.

They offer a good size chart so you can dial in you and your little one’s specs easy peasy lemon squeezy. (yes, you read that right)

Nutcase helmet sizing:

When finding the right size fit of helmet for you and your offspring, the best way to start is to take a flexible tape measure and measure the circumference of the head about one inch above the eyebrows or wherever you deem the widest part of your head extends to. In the past, I have struggled with helmets being too tight and uncomfortable. Nutcase has a good range in terms of size and the fit is solid and is a good comfortable fit if you were born with a big head.

This One Here is Ideal and Slick Looking in Terms of Graphic Impact

The only con I have knowledge of through someone else’s experience is if you were gifted with an oblong egg shaped head like that of my buddy who says the fit just didn’t jam with his oval shaped noggin (but I am not even sure if they make helmets that can accommodate what he has going on – new niche perhaps??)

If you fall into the majority of people with an average round or even squared kind of head, then the fit should feel super dialled in with this brand of helmet.

Small Nutcase Helmet Sizes With a Very Good Vibe Found Here

It is a good and solid range for sizes and style that has been achieved in these helmets.

Features: 5/7

As I stated above, there are several styles and sizes of nutcase helmets. Here is a screenshot of a list of features included in these awesome head protectors. It would get a soild 7 out of 7 if both me and my son hadn’t pinched our skin in the chin strap locks – I am awaiting a new technology that does away with any kind of snap device near the face. One could argue that is human error on our part, but chances are it will happen at least once to almost everyone and if we can switch up that technology, that would be innovatively cool. The reflective straps are fantastic and the CoolControl has a big impact on comfort. I myself rock the helmet without the visor as that is more my style. It seemed quite sturdy to me, but I have heard from one co-pilot that theirs was a bit wonky and would fall off frequently. That could just be one of many manufactured, as I did not experience this when I Tested This Nutcase Lucky Helmet as it was solid as that dude the Rock… but it will give you an explanation as to why the features rating sits at five.

Style: 7/7

In terms of style??

An image of a thousand words, right here:

So what do you think? A solid 6/7 overall rating makes these nutcase helmets kids and adults choice for style, durability, fit and comfort. Now how about the wallet?

Price: 7/7

I have yet to find a helmet on the market that offers the quality, fit, style, comfort and durability and keeps it under the one bill mark (that’s fancy street cred slang for under one hundred dollars) Great range of helmets ranging from the $49.99 -$100.00 These kinds of materials, the job that they are functioned to do makes them a steal coming in under the hundred dollar mark.Imagine Your Little One Rocking Out This Nutcase Helmet Here  knowing he or she will be totally safe and secure in the protection of their magnificent brains and look so styling and QTPA2T while doing so!

Are you a nutcase?

If you are in the good kind of way in that you like to push and test the boundaries of your physical and mental abilities by indulging in outdoor sports and recreation that requires a reliable and stylish helmet, for KidsTeens and Adults.

 Nutcase Helmets are a brand I would whole heartedly and emphatically recommend.

  1. Hi Bex! I love this article as I am a true believer in helmets! In my house, if you are on wheels, you wear a helmet no questions asked. We are on all sorts of wheels during the summer and it is super important to protect the brains.:) I love the style of these helmets and had never heard of them before. I will for sure be checking these out and thank you for being an advocate of helmet (and brain) safety!

    • That is awesome to hear Elizabeth and a very good vibe indeed! I totally dig the style of these helmets too and am pleased you found some value in my post! I thank you too, for keeping the little people of the future healthy and happy in taking care of their main operating systems! Keep up those good vibes sister friend!

  2. My closest friends have recently adopted a new child and so I know that they’ll most likely be getting a bike for her and so a helmet is definitely a must, especially in the area they live in. Your reviews of Nutcase Helmets are great and I really like the one that’s been designed Michael Morrow who you said was the former creative director for Nike. I also like that you provided a chart for head sizes of Nutcase helmets. How long have you used Nutcase Helmets?

    • Hey Brian!  Sounds like a great time to invest in nutcase helmet and I am pleased to hear your friends have started a new family through adoption. Very good vibes!  Me and my dude have only been using these helmets for a short period actually.  We had used the brand GIRO prior that have served us very well.  It was upon creating my new site and a gash in my son’s helmet that propelled me to invest in new helmets.  I happened upon the graphic stylings of the Nutcase series only to learn that they are super solid in quality and fit too, that I was inclined to switch it up and so far, so good!!  Thank you for your comment!

  3. Yeah yeah yeah. My brain is definitely what I wouldn’t joke with. Hehe. I want to get started with some recreational activities pretty soon. Thinking of joining a friend. I have had no experience with helmets before. I think this is the sure way to go, “Nut case helmets”. Good to have come across this at this point in time.

    • Hey BEazzy!  I am pleased my post and review found you at the right time. Have a ton of fun with your activities and rocking out your stylin’ Nutcase!!

  4. Very through and informative review on the ever so important helmet. I have a son too who loves all things fast so the cost of a decent helmet is well worth it. 

    These nutcase helmets seem a good buy, may well be a little top heavy but the energy absorption on impact outweighs that for sure.

    • Absolutely Dianne!  I agree with you the investment of a good helmet pays in dividends!  Thank you for your contribution and I wish you a very great day ahead!

  5. Love it! 

    It’s usually hard getting the little ‘uns to remember safety precautions when, like your 7 year old, their “desire for action supercedes [their] understanding of consequence”.  But these helmets are funky!  Love their colours, their style.  Instead of forgetting their safety training, l can imagine the little ‘uns looking for excuses to put their helmets on.

    How often does it pinch you?  If it’s a rare occasion, then it’s not an issue.  So I wondered whether your head was as big as mine (I have a large one but unsure how to measure it!).

    I’m converting to becoming a nutcase!

    • Hey Cath!  I totally agree with you about the style and colours. So fun!  The pinches are few and far between and usually a result of haste moreso than an issue with the product – but every time it has happened, no matter the brand of helmet, it makes me wonder if there is a different way to approach a kids strap as I have knowledge that I am not the only one that experiences this mishap.  I am pleased to hear you are big brained and have a  big head too!  Take a measuring tape from the widest part and see what number you come up with!  Welcome to the Nutcase Crew and may all your adventures leave you and yours in a very good vibe!

  6. Hi Rebecca, Great reviews on really good helmets. Is there a law in USA about the wearing of helmets? There is this law here in South Africa which I think is so important .It is probably a universal law.

     I recall trying out my granddaughters’ “cool Carver”  and coming off backwards, no helmet on, but fortunately for me, landed on my bottom and back and didn’t hit my head. It could have been really serious but thankfully not.

    My husband had a motor bike and I obviously went on the back and we made sure we had the best helmets we could find which served us well for many years. For the life of me I cannot recall what make they were.

    • Hey Jill.  I believe there is no Federal Law for wearing bicycle helmets in the USA.  28 states have motorcycle helmet laws. I am pleased to hear that South Africa is proactive as here in Canada in terms of bicycle helmet laws as it is a way to prevent many long term injuries and head traumas that can prove a big weight on personal wellbeing and the public healthcare system.  I am pleased to hear there was no damage done to your brain on the cool carver and good for you trying out your grand daughters gear!  That is a very good vibe.  Thank you for your comment!

  7. Rebecca, hello. I will enthusiastically write comments on your topic. Because when I have sporting grandchildren, I have a large collection of protective helmets. My grandchildren are fond of bicycles, skateboards and snowboards. 

    Grandchildren are growing up and I see how “grow” and new models appear. From small Little Nutty  to Nutcase Blackish Gen3 with a yellow triangle. Now they are shopping at Amazon themselves.

    You have fully and substantively laid out the topic. With respect Mark.

    • Thank you for your supportive comment, Mark!  I hope you have a ton of fun enjoying the vibrance and energy of your grandchildren and I wish you all the very best in health and happiness!

  8. Hi Rebecca,

    Awesome review! In all my years of outdoor activities I had never heard of these helmets. These look like very sturdy helmets that can take a beating. I remember cracking numerous helmets back in the day but I doubt that would happen with these. Also, the designs are totally awesome. I would personally take the watermelon one LOL. After this review, these sound like great helmets that I am definitely going to check them out. Thank you.

  9. Hi Rebecca. Yeah, I have to agree with you that good head protection is so vital these days. Even if we ourselves are not accident prone, there are all of the other people on the roads who may not be so careful and we never know when they may do something stupid and cause us to have an accident. These nutcase helmets seem awesome and the rating you have given them based on your personal experience is reassuring. Next time I’m in the market for a new helmet I’ll be sure to check them out. Cheers

  10. This is a wonderful review and I absolutely love the Nutcase helmet and all the colors and designs! We too are an active family, mostly on the water surfing or doing other water sports. But, we also like to ride our bicycles and have not done so yet since we moved to the sunshine state recently. That being said, we could use a couple of helmets as well before we start biking when the weather cools down. I am definitely going to check these out and see if we can’t decide on which design we like!

  11. Great review. I know helmets come a dime a dozen, but honestly, it’s when the head hits the pavement that it matters. What I love about these helmets is the variety of patterns, they fit about any activity, not just bike helmets. And most importantly, it’s safe. I’ll be honest too, I kind of dig the visor on it. Thanks for the review. And I don’t care about the helmets being a little heavier.
