Helmets are one of the most important pieces of your protection gear and arguably the first thing you should get before you ride!
Why Are Skate Helmets Essential?
Action Sports are very dangerous. Therefore it is important that we protect our heads. This means that a Skateboarding helmet is arguably the most essential thing you need other than your ride. And this goes for all sports. Whether you're skating, Bmxing, Scootering or anything else that involves wheels for that matter you need a helmet. They come in all shapes and sizes. There's bike helmets for kids, Cycling helmets, Skateboard helmets and even motorbike helmets. Although they are most likely not the best option ;)
Whether you're a beginner or a professional athlete, everyone needs to protect themselves and wear a helmet. Our Helmets have been designed with not only safety, but also comfort and style in mind. They won’t obstruct your comfort or get in the way of your riding. Meaning if you choose a CORE helmet, you can progress no matter what skill level you are.
So what's the difference between a Skate helmet vs your average cycling helmet?
Now both of these helmets are very similar and they do the same job in keeping your head safe, however, there are some key differences between the two. Skate Helmets are multi impact resistant meaning they can withstand multiple knocks and bumps from impacts whereas a cycling helmet cannot and needs to be replaced after just one incident of impact.
The overall shapes of the two types of helmets is very different too. The back of your head near the neck is mainly where skate helmets cover, but cycle helmets don't tend to do this.
Another difference between the two helmets is the testing standard and the approval stamp of them both. Our Action sports and Street Helmets have been Approved for all Skating, Cycling, Skateboarding, BMXing and Scooters.
Our Helmets Are certified with the certificate EN 1078, Which approves this helmet for all the sports listed above. So if you were to purchase one of our helmets you know it's going to be certified and ready for all action sports!
How to wear a Skate Helmet Correctly
To make sure your Skate Helmet protects you the best it can you need to make sure that it fits correctly. We offer 3 different sizes for all of our helmets and they come with a second set of padding to make sure you can find the perfect fit.
These are the three different sizes we offer so it’s important you measure your head to make sure you buy the correct size. To do this you will need to measure around the circumference of your head just above the ears and eyebrows, like the red arrow in the diagram above.
Your helmet should fit snug and not move around when you shake your head without it feeling uncomfortable.
How Long Do Bike Helmets last?
Our Helmets are super strong and durable but unfortunately they do not last forever. This is why it is very important to always check on your Bike Helmet/Skate Helmets condition. If there are any signs of damage then you should replace your Helmet right away. You should also make sure that the buckles, rivets and straps are also in great condition, especially before you ride.
When should I replace my Bike Helmet?
All Helmets must be replaced after every serious crash, even Motorbike helmets need to be replaced the same as a Skate Helmet. This also applies if you cannot directly see any damage to the helmet. Damage can occur underneah the outershell on the EPS foam layer of the helmet. without any obvious signs. If there is any wear to the EPS foam then you just replace the helmet immediately.
If Your Bike Helmet or Skate Helmet hasn’t suffered any damage we also recommend that you replace your helmet every 5 years.
This is also very important for kids helmets. You need to make sure that your helmet fits correctly and therefore will need to keep up with growth.
This is how you should check your Helmet for damage.
If any of these situations are familiar and apply to your helmet then it is time to replace your lid.
Is the plastic outer layer cracked, heavily scraped or dented? Look closely and examine the shell to see if you can find any small cracks or dents.
Is the Inner Shell (EPS FOAM) compromised in any way? Look to see if the inner foam has any cracks. You may need to remove the padding to do this properly.
Does the Outer Shell move separately to the EPS foam? If the hard outer shell moves freely from the rest of the helmet then it's time to get a replacement.
Are the Buckles and Straps working correctly? Make sure that the straps have no rips and are connected to the helmet properly. Also, make sure the buckle works and is tight when fastened.
