Best Bike Helmet
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Trainspotter from Tennessee on Saturday, August 13, 2016
I am glad STP had these on sale because I probably never would have paid full price for it.... this is until I got it on my head! This helmet is worth it even at full price. I wore a Bell helmet similar to this for years and loved it, but the Nutcase is several cuts above. The shell is thick and sturdy feeling, but not heavy. The foam core is quite a bit thicker, so the helmet looks a bit bigger on my big head, but not too big. The spin dial adjuster at the back is genius. The chin strap is super comfy and a breeze to adjust. The magnetic clasp makes on and off a snap. The helmet is unbelievably comfortable and just feels like my head is nicely cradled. Love the look too, I never liked those modern techy looking helmets, plus I don't think they offer as much protection as this style or especially this particular brand helmet, like Nutcase say's "I Love My Brain", though it's not even a matter of style over substance, this helmet is cool. It comes with two thicknesses of padding and the large size with the thicker pads fits my 23" head perfectly, could fit a bigger head with the thinner pads. Finally, the visor is a definite plus. It simply tucks up between the foam core and shell. The helmet is not meant to be taken on and off by grasping the visor, as long as you don't fiddle with it, it should stay put, mine is quite snug. Go on and buy yourself one before they run out!
