The S1 Mini Lifer helmet is a scaled down version of our Lifer helmet. It is a smaller mold with shorter straps. The Mini Lifer helmet is great for little rippers or people with smaller heads. We include two extra sets of sizing pads to ensure a perfect customized fit. The Mini 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 Mini Lifer helmet is a Certified "multi-impact" helmet and is up to 5x more protective than the soft foam non-certified helmets.
The S1 Lifer Helmet is a true multi-impact helmet. Alot of helmets are marketed as "Multiple Impact". We took a Soft Foam helmet (EVA foamed wrapped with Terry Cloth), a Hockey Helmet (with triple density eva foam) and an S1 Lifer Helmet (EPS Fusion Foam) and put them to the Multiple Impact test. What are parameters of the Multiple Impact Test (ASTM F 1492) ? The helmet is dropped to achieve an impact velocity of 4.57 meters per second. This is equivalent to a 10 MPH impact or a 4 ft. drop height. The same helmet is tested 3x in the same location. The helmet must reduce the peak acceleration of the impact to under 300 G's on all 3 impacts. Why 300 G's? Your brain does not like G's. Anything over 300 G's is very bad for the brain and will cause a severe concussion and/or Traumatic Brain Injury or even death. A helmet's job is to reduce the amount of G's that hit the brain. Test Results: SOFT FOAM HELMET (FAIL) 1st Impact: 852 Peak G's HOCKEY HELMET (FAIL) 1st Impact: 248 Peak G's 2nd Impact: 339 Peak G's 3rd Impact: 381 Peak G's S1 LIFER HELMET (PASS) 1st Impact: 170Peak G's 2nd Impact: 219 Peak G's 3rd Impact: 249 Peak G's The S1 Lifer Helmet is a better, safer helmet. The S1 Lifer Helmet is a true multiple impact helmet. www.s1helmets.com www.facebook.com/s1helmets Instagram @s1rollerderby

I got this for my toddler, we just got her a skateboard and we wanted something to keep her precious noggin. She seems to like it and we like it on her definitely looks safe. Really glad we made this purchase, and I'm sure it's going to be used in years to come.
Awesome & gorgeous

I have a teeny head and your helmet needs to make your eyebrows move to be safe for roller derby and ramp skating. Even the smallest adult helmet ends up wobbling once the padding wears in and ends up too big. I ordered the xl mini lifer and it fits perfect. The bonus is it comes with m and l pads to play around with for a perfect fit. My teamys are very jealous of the sparkles (though I woulda had silver with sparkles if it had been an option in my size!). Wish there was better supply to UK retailers but v happy with delivery time from ordering direct from S1 site. Lots of my team mates have realised the S1 mini lifer is perfect for them since trying mine. Proud to rock it on track and at the skate park feelin safe :)
