About: Back in 2010 we noticed alot of Skateboarders, Longboarders, BMX riders and Roller Derby participants were getting knocked out and worse in traditional soft foam skate helmets. So we set out to make a helmet that would help protect the head better and still fit nice and deep on the head like a traditional skate helmet. We made a better, safer helmet for life long skaters.
