Youth vs. Adult Level 1 Cup


Hi, My name is Jeremiah Raber, and I am the Founder and CEO of Nutshellz. In this video I’m going to explain the differences, and similarities, between our youth and adult size cups.  So, if you’re not sure which size you need, this is the video for you.

Both our youth and adult cups offer the strongest protection available.  They are both made with the toughest materials on earth like: Kevlar, carbon fiber, and aerospace epoxies.  Both of these cups have a ballistic rating strong enough to stop a bullet.

The only difference in these models is the size.  The adult model measures 7 Inches from top to bottom and the youth model is slightly smaller coming in at 6 inches.  The youth size has the exact same proportions as the adult model, but it’s been scaled down to 7/8ths the size so that it will be a better fit for younger athletes.

We typically recommend the adult model for athletes ages 15 and up, while we recommend the youth model for athletes ages 10-15.

Athletes come in all shapes and sizes, but these recommendations seem to be on point for almost all athletes. Both of these cups are the ultimate investment in any athlete’s reproductive health.

If you have any questions about which size is right for you, or your son, be sure to check out the sizing guide on our website or reach out to me directly through the contact form on and I’ll do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible.
