Angel City Derby Girls wear the S1 Lifer Helmet

A few years back we noticed that a lot of people playing Roller Derby were wearing non-certified “multiple impact” soft foam helmets and that concerned us. We have been trying to get the word out to anyone who plays Roller Derby to wear a helmet that is Certified for both Multiple and Single impacts. As concussions become more prevalent in Roller Derby the need for the proper helmet is more apparent than ever. The Angel City Derby Girls have made the switch to the S-One Lifer Helmet¬†The S1 Lifer Helmet is certified to protect your head from multiple impacts and high impacts.

Hard Foam Helmet Vs. Soft Foam Helmet : There is no question about it… the S1 Lifer Helmet is the way to go. If you are wearing a soft foam helmet and hit your head from more than 6.5 feet or 14 mph you will get a severe concussion and could possibly have a traumatic brain injury or die. Over the last few years some of the top Skate and BMX pros have suffered TBI’s (Traumatic Brain Injury) while wearing soft foam helmets (not S1 helmets thankfully). And alot of the Roller Derby players have suffered severe concussions while wearing the non-certified soft foam helmets. The soft foam helmets don’t protect your head enough in the case of a decent slam. S1 highly recommends wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet. S1 wants everyone to know the facts and the truth about soft foam helmets because it is important information.
