Nutcase Helmets

Nutcase Helmets are the most fun a helmet ever had! Nutcase hase re-defined helmets for Street, Water, Snow and Toddlers with unique designs that people love to wear. The Nutcase revolution has taken the world by storm.

Nutcase Helmets was founded in Portland, Oregon USA by former Nike Creative Director and designer Michael Morrow.

Morrow came up with the idea for highly visual and expressive helmets in 2000, when he attended the ‘Civil War’ football game between Oregon and Oregon State in a modified Oregon State University multi-sport helmet. Morrow had adapted the orange and black helmet with yellow rubber duckies symbolising the impending doom of the rival Oregon Ducks. When fan reaction was overwhelmingly positive, Morrow took the idea to the next level, developed the brand name and initial product line.

“We made Nutcase helmets for ourselves, our kids and our friends. The response has been tremendous.” “The first thing I thought was this is a super fun idea that needed to be turned into a new business. Helmets that reflect the participant’s allegiance to an idea, or reflect their personal style were nowhere to be found”, said Morrow.

“Most helmet graphics are either cheesy or based on cartoon characters, which means anybody over three is pretty much excluded. I believe there are kids and adults who want to ride their bikes in a simpler helmet shape than the aerodynamic cycle helmet style, and would like a product that is more visually fun and expressive than just another black helmet”.

Tyrell FSX

Award winning Japanese mini-velo and folding bike brand Tyrell has released it’s updated version, the FSX of Tyrell’s existing popular FX.

The FSX, which will be released next month, is an updated version of the FX model which was introduced 2 years ago. Incidentally, Mr Masahito Hirose, the founder of Tyrell said the “S” in FSX means speed. Masahito shared that some customers would like something faster and lighter that could also fold, hence the new FSX.

Features-wise, the FSX’s frame is constructed out of hydroformed 7005 aluminium alloy. It comes with a redesigned full carbon monocoque front fork with a 1.4inch tapered head tube, for increased steering precision and stability. The FSX will be equipped with narrower Schwalbe Ultremo ZX tires for lower rolling resistance and a full SRAM Force road group set. A small but interesting detail is the new seat tube shim which minimizes scratches/damages to the seat post when it is adjusted during the folding/unfolding process.

Overall, Mr Masahito explains that the basic structure of the FSX is pretty much the same as the FX but lighter, faster and more stable.

Will be available in June at Van’s Urban Bicycle Co and we are a specialists in folding bicycle and mini velo that caters to all.
