Roller Derby Testimonials
Heidi Go Seek- The Lifer fits super good. It breathes really well.
Havana Good Time- I love how light it is and how it sits on my head. It doesn’t slide down my face like the Triple 8 helmet did.
Roarshock Tess- I like the fit a lot and I really like the way the helmets are constructed, and how they are made to sustain multiple impacts.
French Tickler- I love the color! I haven’t noticed any scuff either. I also love how snug the helmet is and that the padding has lasted well. So often the padding breaks down really quickly and then doesn’t fit properly. I like that the straps are easily adjustable too. Thank you S-One!!
Yoga Nabi Sari– Finally a helmet that fits correctly! My helmet doesn’t slide around no matter how many huge hits I take. I also love that S-One customized a color just for Rose City.
“I love my S1 lifer helmet! It doesn’t sit too high and the different padding sizes makes it feel like it was custom-made for me” – Chargin ‘ Tina
“I’m no helmet expert so I have not tried every brand or type of head protection on the market. I’m just a roller derby player who appreciates a company that respects my sport enough watch our games and determine that their product would work for us. S-One Helmet Co. saw that roller derby (flat or banked track) is a real full contact sport where head injuries can occur. They worked with our community, educating us about head concussions, and how to properly wear a helmet. S-One helmets also look great (available in many colors and designs) plus are very comfortable and customizable with various padding sizes.
A derby skater should be in a helmet that can take multiple impacts like the S-One Lifer helmet. I don’t like how other hard form helmets sit too high up on my head (Hello, Forehead!) — the S-One Lifer doesn’t do that. I’ve had my Lifer for a few seasons now and I still feel as safe as I did the first day I got it.”

“The most important aspect of the S-One Kid Helmet for me was finding a CPSC certified helmet that fit correctly. I have a weird little head and other brands would pop off if I hit my head at a certain angle. S-One fits, it’s comfortable, and it protects my head. To put it simply, it works.

“I used to wear a soft foam non-certified helmet from another company and when I fell with the soft faom helmet it would make a THUD and I could feel a pinpoint pain on the back of my head. A few days before the Big O tournament I switched to the S1 Lifer Helmet. I had a bad fall and hit the back of my head hard and I could feel the spread of the impact on the back of the helmet. The Lifer Helmet saved my brain. No pinpoint pain on the back of my head. No concussion. I just want to say THANK YOU to S-One for getting us in safer helmets.”
