S1 Lifer Helmet
• Specially formulated EPS Fusion Foam
• Certified Multi-Impact (ASTM)
• Certified High Impact (CPSC)
• 5x More Protective Than Regular Skate Helmets
• Deep Fit Design
The S1 Lifer Helmet is one of the best fitting and safest helmets for Skateboarding, Longboarding, BMX and Roller Derby. The Lifer Helmet uses a specially formulated EPS Fusion Foam which allows it to protect your head from multiple low force impacts as well as high impacts. The Lifer Helmet is a Certified "multi-impact" helmet and is up to 5x more protective than the soft foam non-certified helmets. The Lifer helmet is a break through design combining the added safety of a CPSC and ASTM certified helmet with the comfort and fit of a non certified helmet. The S1 Lifer Helmet is the best fitting High impact and Multiple Impact helmet on the market.
http://shop.s1helmets.com/our-mission-1/ “In 2010 we noticed some vert skaters, downhill skaters, BMX riders and Roller Derby players 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. So we set out to make a better and safer helmet. We came up with 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 (soft foam helmets fail this test) and the S1 Lifer Helmet passes the CPSC high impact test (soft foam helmets also fail this 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. A Mom who watched her 15 year old son get knocked out for 5 long minutes in the bottom of a pool while wearing a soft foam helmet later said to me,” I didn’t know there was a difference between the S1 Lifer Helmet and soft foam skate helmets. We bought the soft foam helmet at a skateshop and just figured it was a good helmet. I really wish I knew before”. We made a helmet that we would want to wear and that 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

First if I was really surprised that it came with a whole sheet of stickers company's are usually stingy with stickers. Anyway on to the helmet it looks awesome and shiny (I got the gloss black) love the fact it comes with the small and large pads to get the right fit. I rode it at the skatepark the first day and it was very comfortable and the sweatliners were very effective compared to the protection helmet I had. The only noticeable difference / con kinda is that it's a little big but that's only cause I'm used to little to no padding in a protec bucky lasek classic helmet I used to have. 5 stars for sure highly recommended for anyone looking to add some real protection to their noggin with some style!!!
excellent brain bucket

I wore this helmet in practice yesterday. Chin strap adjusts easily. It arrived with 3 sets of soft pads for fit and comfort. It also arrived 3or 4 business days after my purchase. I'm very happy with the shipping and packaging of my new brain bucket!

This is a fantastic helmet. As a mom, my daughter's safety is my primary concern and this helmet fits great; the fact that it came with a full set of different sized pads to get the fit right speaks to S One's attention to safety and to their desire to make sure that their customer gets exactly what she needs. And their responsiveness to my online questions was prompt, polite, and super helpful. Great helmet, great service.
Best Helmet Ever

Got this for my 9 3/4 year old son for skate boarding. He loves it. The fit is great and very cushy. He really likes the fact that it came w/ extra pieces to 'customize' the fit to b snug and cumfy without being too tight. Very much a huge step up compared to competitors versions. This is his third helmet and by far the most comfy. He is truly stoked. As as parent I feel better knowing the helmet's safety rating is as high as it gets. AS far as customer service goes, S One is the best of the best. I phoned them directly as my kids head was right in between sizes, they spoke to me an went the extra mile to help me decide on which size to go. We received the helmet a lot faster than we expected. Top notch service and top notch helmet. Great Job!
