Cause: Get Better & Safer Helmets on Young Skaters

In 2010 we noticed some pro skateboarders and roller derby participants 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. We also learned that soft foam skate helmets FAIL the ASTM multiple impact test and they FAIL the CPSC high impact test.
So we set out to make a better and safer helmet. The result is 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 S1 Lifer Helmet passes the CPSC high impact 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. 
We made a helmet that we would want to wear. And a helmet 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

We took every soft foam helmet from every brand and tested them in the helmet lab. None of the soft foam helmets pass any of the helmet safety standards. The Soft foam helmets fail the multiple impact test and they fail the high impact test.

Tried and True - Review by Wheelbase Mag

"The S1 Lifer helmet is one of the safest and best fitting halfshells available for skating. With a dual safety certification, ASTM to protect from multiple low level impacts, and CPSC to protect from a single heavier impact, the lifer is built to protect and looks fresh at the same time. Repeated testing has proven the lifer’s hard foam build to outperform all soft foam, and many other hard helmets on the market. The lifer comes in multiple liner sizings to ensure a snug and proper fit for all heads, with an EPS fusion foam and ABS outershell construction. This combination provides both a deep fit that protects and fits better, making the helmet more comfortable as well. With a better fit, protection, and look, the S-One helmet is one of the best helmets we’ve owned. We recommend these helmets for all skating applications, and prefer our S-one over all other helmets for parks, pools, downhill, and even cruising to the store down the street. The current halfshell lineup also offers some fresh designs such as the Eddie “El Gato” Elguera model we’ve been rocking, keeping riders stylish and protected at the same time. Pick up a S-One lid to replace your loose, crashed, or grimy old helmet, and feel the difference. S-One has been trusted by countless pro’s, and is rooted in California’s rich skate and action culture. Their unrelenting approach to the elevation of safety has earned the brand a reputation for top quality safety gear, which can be seen in the perfected design of the lifer halfshell. Impact testing, rider feedback, and popularity haven’t lied; the Lifer helmet is one of the best fitting and stylish helmets out there." - Wheelbase Magazing Shop for an S1 Lifer Helmet here

Rumble in Ramona 6

Once a year in Ramona California, a truly unique event brings together skateboarders of all ages from all over the country. Hosted by veteran vert pro Darren Navarrette, you can always expect something new and rad every year. This year was no different. Hand painted flags, a mini castle type structure to catch some shade from the Ramona heat, hand made wooden shields and custom made trophies for tricks to name a few of the new aspects added this year. Its always a good time, good bands, good food and a ton of amazing skateboarding… oh and some very nice hot rods hanging around as well.

Some fun facts about the ramp. It was first built July 4th, 2008. The ramp is 10 feet with 2 feet of vert(making it 12 feet total) with a 1 foot extension with pool coping, has 10′ decks, it is 50 feet wide which works out to 50 5×10 sheets of 1/8 inch cold rolled apex steel and lastly the lighting is complete DIY stadium style lighting made from old lamp posts to get the height (the lights were added later). All and all it was another great success and everyone had a great time. Thank you Darren and everyone involved that make this day possible!

Feast your eyes on these photos of Keegan Palmer, Pedro Delfino and Adam “Scizzor” Effertz.

These guys are all wearing S1 Lifer Helmets. Lab tests show that S1 Lifer Helmets are up to 5x more protective than traditional soft foam skate helmets. Keegan (Spinning a 540), Scizzors (Gap to Smith) . Pedro (FS Hip Hop Invert)
