S1 LIFER HELMET
GREAT FIT: The S1 Lifer Helmet fits nice and low on the head. If your head is on the smaller side (18.5" - 20.5" circumference) you can choose the S1 Mini Lifer. If your head is on the bigger side (23" - 25" head circumference ) you can choose the S1 Mega Lifer Helmet. It is interesting to note that 90% of children (ages 8+) and Adults fit in the regular S1 Lifer Helmet (head circumference 20.5" - 23") In summary, S1 has a wide range of sizing to fit small, average and larger skulls. It is best to measure the circumference of your head before choosing a helmet.
SUPER COMFY: When it comes to helmets safety is paramount but comfort is always nice! The S1 Lifer Helmet comes with super soft sizing liners that conform to your head and have a nice airy and comforting feel. The Sizing Liners are color coded so you know by looking at them how thick the liners are. Grey liners are (XS) 14mm, Red Liners (S) 12mm, Beige Liners (M) 10mm, Black Liners (L) 8mm, Green Liners (XL) 6mm, Blue Liners (2XL) 4mm, Purple Liners (3XL) 2mm. The liners are interchangeable so you can make a helmet fit tighter or looser by removing and replacing the liner.
SAFETY CERTIFIED: "We take safety seriously at S1" says Dan McCashin, Co-founder of S1," We made the Lifer Helmet safe and comfortable so we could 100% recommend the helmet to family, friends and team riders." The S1 Lifer Helmet is both ASTM and CPSC certified according to US helmet safety standards. It is also certified to the Australian and EU helmet safety standards. The S1 Lifer Helmet is constructed with Fusion Foam which absorbs and dissipates impact force away from the head. Fusion foam is soft enough to protect against multiple low force impacts and dense enough to protect against single high impacts.
MULTI-PURPOSE USE: The S1 Lifer Helmet is designed, constructed and safety certified to be worn while riding your skateboard, bicycle, roller skates or a non-motorized scooter. The S1 Lifer Helmet first earned it's good reputation as the best skate helmet among vert, pool and park skaters. Over the last 10 years, the good words about the S1 Lifer Helmet spread into the roller derby, roller skate, bike, and scoot communities. The internet has also enabled discerning parents to research and find the S1 Lifer Helmet for their little shredders.
BATCH TESTED: "We batch test every production run" says Chris Terins, Co-Founder of S1, "We want to make sure every production run meets and/or exceeds current helmet safety standards. By law, we aren't required to batch test but we spend the extra time and money on testing so Dan and I know were shipping the best possible helmets to our customers."
TRUST: The folks at S1 have been manufacturing helmets for 20+ years and they have an amazing track record for quality, safety and customer service. S1 was the first company in the skate market to educate skateboarders about the added safety of certified helmets and the dangers of wearing non-certified helmets. As a result of the brand's efforts to educate and inform customers a sense of goodwill spread throughout the skate and bike communities. Some of the world's top pros like 22 -year-old Heimana Reynolds, a professional skateboarder who recently competed in the Tokyo Olympics, has been wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet since he was a 12 year old grom. Heimana said, "It's the only helmet I will wear. In my opinion, it is the best, safest and most comfortable helmet on the market."
