Nutcase Helmets en

"The most fun a helmet ever had "

Nutcase Helmets, of Portland Oregon, are multi-purpose cycle, skateboard, inline and scooter helmets aimed at providing unique designs and creative alternatives in the cycle and skate helmet market. Launched in the spring of 2005, Nutcase is sold throughout the United States in Sporting Goods and Outdoor Specialty stores. Their designs are original, unique and very imaginative. The objective of Nutcase helmets is to combine highly visual graphics with multi-purpose helmet designs that are popular among bicycle, skateboard, scooter and in-line skate enthusiasts.
