“I ride the S1 Lifer Helmet because it is the best helmet out there on the market.” Eddie “El Gato” Elguera
S1 filmer and editor Robert Crawford headed out to The Yard in Palm Springs to meet up with skateboarding legend Eddie “El Gato” Elguera. Eddie was a 2x World Champion back in the late 70′s early 80′s, he was the first person to do a Frontside Rock n Roll and Fakie Rock n Roll and invented the Elguerial. His friends called him El Gato cause his skating was smooth like a cat. Eddie is over 50 now and still skates on the regular and still rips!
A few years ago Eddie was wearing a soft foam non-certified helmet and he tried on an S1 Lifer Helmet. He loved the fit and he liked the fact that the Lifer was going to offer more protection than the soft foam helmets. He was been wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet ever since.
If you are looking for a helmet we highly recommend the S1 Lifer Helmet. It fits great and it is fully certified to offer the best head protection. The Lifer meets the ASTM multiple impact standard, the CPSC high impact standard, the Australian and New Zealand helmet impact standards and the British high impact standard.
If you love skateboarding and you wear a helmet – def check out the S1 Lifer Helmet for you and your friends and family.
Some fun runs in San Francisco. The S1 Lifer Helmet is an ideal helmet for bombing hills because it is certified to protect your head from lower multiple impacts and single high impacts. If you want to save your hard drive (ie: your brain) wear the S1 Lifer Helmet. The Lifer fits nice and deep on the head and has been described as the “best fitting certified helmet” for Skateboarding, Longboarding, BMX and Roller Derby.
This video was filmed and edited by the S1 Longboard Team Manager, Alex Ameen.

“I’ve had plenty of concussions like all old men have who still ride skateboards. I love S1 Helmets and am so honored that they look out for me. Haven’t stopped falling on my head but haven’t had a concussion since wearing the S1 Lifer helmet.” – Adam “Scizzors” Effertz

Thiago loves the fit and the added safety that the S1 Lifer Helmet provides.
“Most people wear the soft foam helmets here in Brasil. They don’t even know there is a better and
safer skate helmet like the S1 Lifer Helmet. I wanted to make a video to help spread awareness about
how awesome the S1 Lifer Helmet is. That way everyone in Brasil can wear safer helmets.” – Thiago Nobre
The S1 Lifer Helmet fits great and is up to 5x more protective than the soft foam non-certified helmets.
