Helmet Bling To BeatThe Winter Blues
Helmet bling can easily beat winter blues…for some of us.
It’s the bold and simple graphics of the Little Nutty Ladybug and Little Nutty Bumblebee that catches kids’ eyes. And sometimes, that lovely fascination with the animal kingdom that kids are just discovering. ”I picked the Bumblebee because I like to ride around and pretend I’m a nice honey bee,” says Iris McKeever, four. ”I don’t like yellow jackets, only the nice honey bees. They make me laugh.”
Freeboarding is a unique form of skateboarding designed to mimic the ’side to side’ motion of a snowboard. The Nutcase Locombia Street helmet, according to Yoann Chapel of the LAU Riders, is a great freeboarding helmet due to its stylish design and thoughtful features.
German consumer organization Stiftung Warentest has developed a unique standard for testing and scoring bicycle helmets. Surprisingly, of the 18 helmets Stiftung tested recently, only three received a “good” rating. We’re proud that Stiftung Warentest gave the Nutcase Street the top rating for safety, saying: ”The Nutcase does best in accident protection.”
Cecile Klaus couldn’t find many women getting into the racing side of roller skating, so she created her own team, the Miss’iles. Women from all different skating style groups (free skate, hockey, street skating, skate dancing) joined. Cecile said by picking their own designs the Miss’iles find a helmet that will inspire them in challenging moments.
We’re striving to make helmets that are as safe, comfortable, and cool (in the many senses of that word) as is humanely possible. With this generation of our Street and Metroride helmets, ’A Perfect Fit’ is not hard to get. But because human noggins come is all shapes and sizes, it’s not a foregone conclusion either.
