Scizzors- Field report from Miami 06/02/14
“Reason I share the following is to give credit to a great company for making a great product. I really wish I could stop putting their product to the test, but slamming is just an inescapable part of skating. I hung up on a backside air yesterday sending me to the flat, leaving me laid out. Was a little woozy, but no headache, no blurred vision. S1 Helmets Lifer’s hard foam took the impact dispersing the energy and cracked like it’s supposed to. Bruised shoulder, swellbow, possibly bruised ribs under peck, sore neck, but all that will heal in time, just glad that when I move my head around today I’m not feeling bruising in my brain and for that I’m forever grateful to S-One and the Lifer helmet.” – Adam Effertz aka Scizzors.

Heimana Reynolds. 1st year in the Pro Division at the Vans Pool Party. And his runs are insane. Kid is on fire. And then he over rotates on a big backside air and in a split second is headed for the worst slam of his life.
If he wasn’t wearing a helmet he might have died. Head explosion. And if he had a soft foam non-certified helmet on he probably would have been knocked out for at least 5 minutes and had the full body spams and probable traumatic brain injury. But… he was wearing an S1 Lifer Helmet. The S1 Lifer Helmet is constructed with EPS Fusion Foam which protects your head and minimizes high impacts. He def got knocked out for a few seconds. But he came through ok. And he walked out of the bowl with some help. The medics checked him out and he was ok’d to finish his heat. He ended up placing 12th place in his first year skating in Vans Pool Party.
Like most skaters, Heimana grew up wearing the soft foamy non-certified helmets and he just switched to the more protective S1 Lifer Helmet last year.
“He KO’d for a few seconds and he was able to do his 3rd skate run and walk away from this slam with a headache and no memory loss or life threatening conditions.” – Matt Reynolds (Heimana’s Dad)
“Thank god for the S1 Lifer Helmet.” – Matt Reynolds
Skate Legends Jeff Grosso and Eddie “El Gato” Elguera came down to help.
Big congrats to Tristan Rennie. He won the Combi Am contest this year and won a seat into the Pro contest. First year in the pro division and he gets 1st place. INSANE!!!!
This year’s contest was a big changing of the guards. As Jim Gray pointed out 4 out of the 6 skaters in the pro finals were 16 or under!
Just want to send a huge thanks to all of the Pros for rocking S1 Helmets!
