Testimonial: Lester Kasai / S1 Lifer Helmet


“Well, I have a couple of friends who have had major head injuries while skating, and they have suffered irreversible brain damage. They are not the same mentally anymore. I’m 49 now, and I insist on the best protection I can get for my noggin, so I wised up and switched from a soft-foam helmet to the S1 Lifer helmet.” – Lester Kasai

The S1 Lifer Helmet is 5x more protective than traditional soft foam skate helmets – check out all of the colors at

Testimonial from a Lifer about the Lifer

NC-vert-rampMy friend built a 12 foot vert ramp in his backyard in Navassa, NC and I have already took 2 good slams to the noggin. I just wanted to let you guys know that your Lifer Helmet helped me walk away both times! Great product and I have all of the regulars at the ramp wearing one now! Thanks for keeping me skating!! ”  – Randy Rose

“The S1 Lifer Helmet has the best fit and best protection.” – Keegan Palmer

The S1 Lifer Helmet is one of the most protective helmets for skating big bowls and backyard vert ramps.  The S1 Lifer helmet is constructed with specially blended EPS Fusion foam so it protects your head from multiple impacts and high impacts. The S1 Lifer Helmet is 5x more protective than regular soft foam skate helmets. We are really glad that young rippers like Keegan like the fit and feel and protection of the Lifer Helmet.
