Longboard Helmets

Longboard Helmets: Because there's no such thing as a brain transplant

Whether you're longboarding across campus or hauling down a winding mountain road, you need a longboarding helmet to keep you safe. You'll notice we sell both fullface longboard helmets and open-shell helmets for longboarding. The style of longboard helmet you choose depends on the type of riding you do. Learn more about longboarding helmets below.

What Kind of Longboard Helmet Do I Need?

You know you need a longboarding helmet to protect yourself from severe head injury, but what kind of longboard helmet? Both an open-face and a fullface longboard helmet will cover the top, back, and sides of your head. If you use your longboard for commuting/transportation around campus or your neighborhood, an open-shell longboard helmet will most likely suit your needs. Choose a fullface longboard helmet if:
  • You're riding any hills that get your speed above 20-25 mph
  • You often ride in small groups or heavy traffic areas, raising the likehood of a collision
  • You want a bit coverage on the back of your head
  • You want to protect your chin, jaw, and lower face because your Mom told you you have a great face
