A LITTLE STORY OF OUR JAMMER KUJIS #24 AND HER S1 LIFER HELMET
It was a regular jam start – until I flew backwards in slow motion. I knew I would end up falling on the back of my head but there was nothing I could do anymore. I blacked out for a nano second to find my teammate’s scared face bent over me asking if I was OK.
After hitting the back of my head straight to the floor I was feeling weirdly fine. I heard that my helmet had cracked and even left a small hole on the floor. My neck was stiff and hurting yes but neither I nor the skilled first aid personnel could believe that I didn’t even get a bump on my head - the helmet had done it’s job and saved my brains. It was marked down as a mild concussion for safety reasons but I never got any symptoms.
After reading about head injuries and concussions I can’t believe how lucky I was wearing my S1 Helmet and getting away with it all. Thank you for saving my brains – and thank you for the amazing derby community who had crowd-funded me a new S1 helmet from the venue to replace the cracked one before our game had even ended! I still remember that nice gesture every time I put my helmet on and I love to recommend your brand to everyone.
So thank you S1 for saving my head!
