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 while wearing traditional soft foam skate helmets. We decided to take 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 and the CPSC high impact test (soft foam helmets fail both of these certification tests).
