“I ride the S1 Lifer Helmet because it is the best helmet out there on the market.” Eddie “El Gato” Elguera
S1 filmer and editor Robert Crawford headed out to The Yard in Palm Springs to meet up with skateboarding legend Eddie “El Gato” Elguera. Eddie was a 2x World Champion back in the late 70′s early 80′s, he was the first person to do a Frontside Rock n Roll and Fakie Rock n Roll and invented the Elguerial. His friends called him El Gato cause his skating was smooth like a cat. Eddie is over 50 now and still skates on the regular and still rips!
A few years ago Eddie was wearing a soft foam non-certified helmet and he tried on an S1 Lifer Helmet. He loved the fit and he liked the fact that the Lifer was going to offer more protection than the soft foam helmets. He was been wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet ever since.
If you are looking for a helmet we highly recommend the S1 Lifer Helmet. It fits great and it is fully certified to offer the best head protection. The Lifer meets the ASTM multiple impact standard, the CPSC high impact standard, the Australian and New Zealand helmet impact standards and the British high impact standard.
If you love skateboarding and you wear a helmet – def check out the S1 Lifer Helmet for you and your friends and family.
Hey Chris, Austin from AZPush down in Tucson, we havent talked in awhile, but I thought I’d shoot you an email. I was at the skatepark
saturday morning, attempting to learn how to drop in, ate shit, and landed with pretty much my full falling force on the back of my head (luckily i got it on camera, here is a gif I made of it!h). Thankfully i was wearing your guys’ Lifer helmet, and it took it like a champ (check out the crack, this doesnt even do it justice. I got up and walked away from it with an ever so slight concussion, instead of having to be rushed to the ER. So i just wanted to say thank you so much for making amazing helmets, and keep up the good work. Im so thankful i was wearing mine.
Austin was wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet. The Lifer is constructed with EPS Fusion Foam and it is designed to protect your head from multiple impacts and high impacts. It is the safest skateboard helmet on the market. Great Fit + Best Protection = S1 Lifer Helmet. Buy one here.
I did my helmet research and afterwards I got Shane from WRV to order me the Duane Peters lifer model. Not only because it was cool looking but it was certified and tested. There is another skater where I live that has had many concussions because he is not wearing the proper gear (he did take big slams too). I did not want to have one much less any. I like how the lifer is tested and certified to lessen the impact of the slams I might take riding the bowl and vert.
