Nutcase Perfect Fit Guide
MIPS Options refer to helmets available in 2018.
Nutcase Snow is available in 2 sizes: S-M (52-57cm) and L-XL (58-62cm)
How to determine your size
1. Measure up
Measure 3 times and take the largest result in centimetres. Place tape measure slightly above ear and bring it across the mid forehead completely circling the head. Then refer to our size chart on this page.
2. Try it on
Try it on when you receive your helmet or head to a Dealer store for a fitting. When trying on, ensure the side straps and Spin Dial Fit System are adjusted. Also check if the correct size foam pads are installed. Swap to a thinner or thicker set depending on whether you are going down or up in centimetres/fit.
3. Wear it straight: Do the push test
Before riding or skating, ensure the helmet sits level on the head and does not slide or move freely when you move your head side-to-side. If it moves, the helmet is too large.
Test it side-to-side again and do the push test: When someone places a palm to your forehead they should not be able to push the helmet backwards off your head.
Helmet sizing and growth
It is recommended that wearers replace helmets every 2-3 years for growing children and when a collision or fall has occurred which may have cracked the internal EPS (grey interior) impact protection layer.
Helmets should not be worn by children when playing in playgrounds, local parks and climbing frames or 'monkey bars' as there is risk of choking or strangulation.
Check for Proper fit
- The front of the helmet must sit above the brow, straight across the temples.
- The back of the helmet must not touch the nape of your neck. If it does, it means your helmet may be slipping backwards.
- The chin strap should be snug but not too tight as to cause discomfort or choking.
- Securely fasten the chin strap and try to roll the helmet off your head. If the skin on your forehead moves slightly, you have a good fit.
- The side straps should form a clean triangle encompassing each ear area.
- Do not over tighten Adjustable Spin Dial.
