S1 Lifer Helmet - Fusion Foam

The S1 Lifer Helmet is constructed with Fusion Foam. Fusion is is soft enough to help protect from multiple impacts and dense enough to protect from high impacts.

• Multiple Impact Certified (ASTM)
• High Impact Certified (CPSC)
• Deep Fit Design
• 5x More Protective Than Traditional Soft Foam Skate Helmets
• Every Production Run Is Batch Tested to Meet Quality Safety Standards

HOW DO WE MAKE FUSION FOAM?
Fusion foam s created by a patented process that blends low, medium and high density foam beads together. The Fusion Foam is then molded into the shape of the S1 Lifer Inner Liner.

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 http://www.wheelbasemag.com/tried-true-november-2016/ 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)

How was the trip to Colombia? The trip was super sick. Most definitely going back one day. Where did you stay? In Bogota with Alex and Chela then we stayed at the Wepa House while we were in Cali, and with Carolina Ospina in Medellin. Daily diet? Empanadas and Coffee Favorite sessions? We had a pretty killer session my last day before I went back to Canada Favorite party? Leonera after party was real fun Things that scared you? The hills we’re so gnarly that it was survival mode skating and trying to make it down in one piece Any crazy stories? We were driving back to Bogota and our rental car decided to stop working and leak oil everywhere so we pull over and see a motorcyclist and semi truck crash. Any lessons? Keep your backpack with you all the time Any realizations? Skaters are cool anywhere you go. What is your current board set up? The Valhalla Sho Stopper with Paris Savants 50/43, and usually 83a Cages

Arto's Bowl !


"I am an 11 year old skater and this week I was lucky enough to take part in a Neal Mims Skate Academy travel skate camp. 
As part of these camps Neal always takes us kids to some private facilities not normally available to them. I have been to the Berrics, Volcom, Monster/DC and so many other cool places on previous camps but on this week's camp I got to visit Arto Saari's backyard bow! l was really lucky that Arto, the legendary skater and photographer, took some these cool shots of me shredding the bowl.
His bowl is so cool and Arto is the best - big thanks to Neal Mims for making these special moments happen for us kids. In the pictures I am wearing my S1 Lifer Helmet, the only helmet I trust to keep me safe! " - Jake Golden

S1 Lifer Helmet for Life !





Dear S1 Helmets,

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! 
My 9 year old son and I love to skateboard together, and have for a few years now, usually Saturday or Sunday mornings. Sunday, July 24, 2016, his S1 LIFER HELMET did exactly what you guys designed it to, no doubt! At our skatepark, he missed his line and took a header down the stair section. My son was knocked unconscious momentarily from the impact, but his S1 Lifer helmet took the worst of the fall (and has the marks to show for it!). Though he did fracture his arm and suffer bruises on his face, shoulders and hip, my son's skull and brain are just fine thanks to your dedication to safety. This father can not say THANK YOU enough. As his arm heals and bruises fade, we look forward to skating again very soon. 

Best Regards, 
Rich Unger
Riverview, FL


Dear Rich,

Thanks for the email. That is so gnarly. So glad he is ok. So glad he was wearing a helmet. And very glad it was a good helmet.
I have been getting calls from parents telling me their kids don't want to wear helmets at the skatepark because the pros skating in the Vans Skate Park Series contests aren't wearing helmets. And they ask me - What can I say to my kid? And I tell them this,"The skaters in that contest are pros - they are super talented and have been skating for a long time - and they are literally risking life and limb in the contest for money and/or recognition.  But the fact is ALL of the pro skaters invited to skate in that contest wore helmets up until the age of 13 -16. So we at S1 urge ALL parents  to make sure their kid has a helmet until he turns Pro.  :)

In summary - helmet stays on in the skatepark until you turn pro. When you are getting paid to sell the look of skateboarding you can take the helmet off. Until you are pro-  you are a skateboarding not participating in a fashion show. 

Note: The skateboarding in the Vans Skate Park Series is so gnarly and the guys are blasting huge airs and they really should be wearing helmets. Someone could die or suffer serious head trauma.  In a contest situation where guys are going for the win the chance of making a bad decision increases. It seems that the contest organizers frown upon wearing helmets because they want the look of skateboarding to be super cool BUT this is isn't street skating - there are 12 foot walls - ... it is super gnarly. 

Hope that helps. 

Skate for life.

S1 Helmets - Nick Daiello - Interview


Nick Daiello 


Where you from?
I grew in north Orange County, and now I live in Inland Empire.
When did you start skating?
 Two of my friends I was close with both had been skating for a few years so I started skateboarding with them when I was eleven years old.
First board?
  I had a couple hand me down boards, but the first board I remember going and picking out was Think Wade Speyer board, I was probably 13 and at that time I was only skating street and it was a really fun time.
 After a session we all went to one of my friends and he threw on Toy Machine- Welcome to hell, it was the first video I had seen and the skateboarding and music for the parts was really cool, I loved Jamie Thomas and Donny Barley part. 
Best sessions?
 So many rad times at Pala pool, bands raging all night, camp out and then skate in the morning. There was also a amoeba backyard pool in chino that we had some killer all night sessions with the generators and lights going. Sometime around 2011 I was leaning backside airs and skating the Combi pool, Christian Hosoi was there and giving me tips and I finally landed a good one and I felt it , but it made it so much more memorable him yelling and giving me a high five and telling me it was good one. 
How did the Terrordome come about?
 I have always loved the backyard sessions , when I bought my house I knew I wanted to build something to skate,but the place we found had a big yard and hill that provides a great view. I just wanted to build a bowl for people to come have a good time, and a place my son and I can skate, but I never expected The Terrordome would turn out the way it did.
  So it started with the word going around that I wanted to build a ramp and I got a call from Skreech and he said someone was getting rid of a bunch of wood from another ramp and bowl, we just needed to dismantle it and get it to my house, so my Dad ,Brandon, Skreech , Johnny Abernathy, and some other friends got to work.  I remember at one point we were all lowering big pieces, corners and templets down the side of this fifteen foot wall with a rope, the ramps were built on a tennis court and the parking was was below because it was in the hills. We got the wood to my house and it was just a bunch different size parts, it could have easily just ended up being a small bowl, but I think bigger the better! We threw around some ideas and just went off.  CW from Atomic Ramps helped a lot, my Dad, there was lot of people that would come and go, so I won't list them all, but they all contributed and I'm very thankful for all the help I got, the bowl took two years to finish.  The first Destroy the Terrordome event held one hundred fifty plus people, and the second event this last year was over two hundred fifty.  
Anything else?
 Back to the question you asked earlier about favorite years skateboarding, I would say now because of the non stop progression, and fun I enjoy with my son, friends and new people I meet threw skateboarding. Ten years from now those will now be my favorite years of skateboarding. 


We made a better / safer helmet that we would want to wear and we could
100% recommend to family, friends and team riders. Check out all of the colors of the S1 Lifer Helmet at www.s1helmets.com

Soft Foam Skate Helmets Fail All of the Helmet Safety Standards

Watch the helmet testing video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wE4ChD05hA
We took the soft foam skate helmets into a testing lab in El Segundo and discovered that the soft foam helmets FAIL all of the helmet safety standards. Impact energy goes directly through the soft foam.

Skateshop Owners : How to sell the S1 Lifer Helmet

Skateshop owners: This is how you sell a safer helmet to your customer.


Customer: I want to buy a skate helmet for my kid. (or myself)

Skate Shop Employee:  Ok rad. So you have 2 different types of helmets. 
Option 1 is this soft foam helmet. It has squishy foam with a terry liner and has been the industry standard for a long time but we have recently learned these helmets FAIL all of the helmet safety standards. If your kid goes down hard the helmet will not provide adequate protection. 
Option 2 is the S1 Lifer Helmet. It meets all of the helmet safety standards and is ASTM certified to help protect from multiple impacts and it is CPSC certified to help protect from single high impacts. This the best helmet on the market. Alot of people are buying this helmet now. 

Result: More skaters in your community are wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet (a safer helmet) which means less head injuries and a safer skate community.

Are you looking for the best skate helmet?

“In 2010 we noticed some vert skaters. downhill skaters, BMX riders 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. 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 (soft foam helmets fail this test) and the S1 Lifer Helmet passes the CPSC high impact test (soft foam helmets also fail this 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. A Mom who watched her 15 year old son get knocked out for 5 long minutes in the bottom of a pool while wearing a soft foam helmet later said to me,” I didn’t know there was a difference between the S1 Lifer Helmet and soft foam skate helmets. We bought the soft foam helmet at a skateshop and just figured it was a good helmet. I really wish I knew before”.
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
