So we set out to make a more protective helmet

In 2010 we noticed some pro skateboarders and roller derby participants were getting knocked out and in some instances getting traumatic brain injuries in traditional soft foam skate helmets. So we took the soft foam helmets into the testing lab and learned that the impact energy goes directly through the soft foam helmets and rattles the brain. We also learned that soft foam skate helmets FAIL the ASTM multiple impact test and they FAIL the CPSC high impact test.

So we set out to make a better and safer helmet. The result is the S1 Lifer Helmet. The S1 Lifer Helmet is constructed with EPS Fusion Foam and is 5x more protective than soft foam skate helmets. The S1 Lifer Helmet passes the ASTM multiple impact test and the S1 Lifer Helmet passes the CPSC high impact test.

We have taken steps to educate the public about the S1 Lifer Helmet through videos and printed media. Most skaters and parents did not know that traditional skate helmets did not pass any helmet safety standards. They usually only learned the difference after a head injury and that is too late. 

We made a helmet that we would want to wear. And a helmet we could 100% recommend to family, friends and team riders. When you are wearing an S1 Lifer Helmet you know that you are wearing the best. And if you own a skateshop you know you are offering the best to your skate community. – Dan McCashin Co Founder/ S1 Helmets
