Why We Love Nutcase Helmets

Here at Micro we believe safety & fun go hand in hand-- a belief we share with one of our favorite helmet brands, Nutcase! Nutcase Helmets was founded on this premise by Michael Morrow, former Creative Director of Nike. He realized that not everyone wants to wear aerodynamic cycling helmets, and that helmets can be a stylistic representation of someone’s personality. So, he set out to create helmets that are safe, stylish, and fun. This weekend only, (2-15-18 through 2-17-18) save 10% when you purchase a Nutcase helmet with one of our deluxe scooters.

Take a moment to think about what a fall off of a scooter might look like. What if you ran into something, or got hit? Chances are you’re not imagining one direct bonk to the head. Crashes can be complicated, which is why Nutcase uses special materials and designs to protect your noggin. Here’s a few technologies included in their helmets:

 

  • Injection-molded ABS shell: ABS is an acronym for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, a compound loved for its toughness. It combines the strength and rigidity of acrylonitrile and styrene polymers with the toughness of polybutadiene rubber. Although it is more expensive than other helmet shell alternatives, it provides superior quality when it comes to head safety.
  • Patented MIPS Brain Protection System: This highly-regarded helmet safety system was made to reduce impact to your brain. The patented brain protection system mimics your own protective system inside your skull to help reduce internal brain movement. When something hits your head, your brain slides across an internal membrane. When something hits a MIPS helmet, it imitates that movement with a slight give, and slides across a low-friction layer between the helmet and your head, reducing the amount of moment that happens beneath your skull. Watch how MIPS helmets are tested in this video.
  • EPS Shock-Absorbing Liner: EPS is an acronym for expanded polystyrene: the foamy part of a helmet. This is widely used across helmet brands for its capability in absorbing shock.

Certified by the CPSC, you can be sure that your helmet will meet or exceed all regulated helmet safety standards.

 

 

 

 

But being super safe isn’t the only benefit of a Nutcase helmet. They’re also packed with great features that may leave you stunned at how brilliant they are. We’ll highlight each helmets special characteristics below.
