ProTec Classic Helmet for Bike/Skate: Which Helmet Do I Need?

ProTec makes a huge array of helmets—skate helmets, skateboarding helmets, mountain bike helmets, BMX helmets. It’s difficult to figure out which ProTec helmet will best meet your needs. The helmet liner is your best guide to deciding which helmet is right for you. (Note that the liner is the padding that is right next to the plastic exterior shell of the helmet, not the soft, squishy foam pads for comfort and fit that sit next to your head.)

ProTec helmets are made with three different kinds of liners:
  • A 2-stage soft foam liner
  • A stiff liner made expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam
  • A surface-activated expanded polypropylene (SXP) liner.
Each Pro-Tec liner is designed to cushion your head in the event of an impact. However, each type of liner is best suited for a particular kind of impact. The 2-stage liner is designed to withstand multiple small impacts, such as you might get at the skate park. The EPS liner is designed to protect you in the event of a major collision, such as a bicycle crash. Pro-Tec’s patented SXP is a high-grade multi-impact liner designed to protect even the most aggressive riders.

If you plan to use your ProTec helmet only for skateboarding, you probably want one of ProTec’s "skate" helmets These include the ProTec Classic Skate, Bucky Lasek Classic, Classic Full Cut, ProTec Classic Plus Skate, Bucky Lasek edition, and Ace Skate helmets. Each of these skateboarding helmets features ProTec’s soft 2-stage foam liner. This softer liner is generally considered more comfortable than the stiffer EPS liner in the Pro-Tec bike/skate helmets. However, Pro-Tec skate helmets are NOT certified to CPSC bicycle helmet safety standards. If you want to use the same helmet for biking as you do at the skatepark or pipe, you should go for one with an EPS liner or an SXP liner (i.e., a bike/skate helmet).

Pro-Tec bike/skate helmets have either an expanded polystyrene (EPS) or surface-activated expanded polypropylene (SXP) liner. The Classic bike/skate helmet(sometimes just called “The Classic”), ProTec Cyphon helmet, ProTec Shovelhead 2 helmet, and ProTec Riot Street helmet all have an EPS foam liner that meets CPSC bicycle helmet safety certifications. EPS foam liners are the industry standard for action sport helmets; however, they are not multi-impact. EPS liners offer higher levels of impact protection than the 2-stage foam liner, however, they can "lose" their maximum protective abilities after sustaining a collision because the stiff foam lining condenses upon impact and does not pop back to its original shape.

If you’re looking for a multi-impact helmet that you can use for both skateboarding and biking, ProTec Ace bike/skate helmets and ProTec B2 bike/skate helmets feature
multi-impact SXP liners.
This light but stiff liner is a good choice for aggressive active sports enthusiasts because it attempts to merge the benefits of ProTec’s 2-stage liner and EPS foam liner: Protective abilities designed to rebound after an impact without condensing
permanently, potentially allowing for protection even after an impact.

NOTE: As with any helmet, be sure to inspect the interior and exterior for cracks or other damage after any serious impact. If you take a hit hard enough to make you say, "Wow!" please check your helmet.

Pro-Tec: Protection for Progression

Founded in 1973, Pro-Tec is the original action sports protective gear brand. The company’s product line includes skate helmets, bike/skate helmets, mountain bike helmets, gloves, upper body armor, knee and elbow pads, shin and ankle guards, and helmet liners. No other company comes close to matching ProTec’s list of achievements in protection, while never forgetting the importance of style, price and comfort. Evidence of this is ProTec’s leadership in high-performance helmets for skateboarding, biking, and snowboarding. On the outside, ProTec perfectly blends classic and contemporary styling to make ProTec one of the most iconic helmet brands around the globe. Beyond the surface, ProTec “engineers in” quality materials like rugged ABS plastic shells, stainless steel hardware, soft tubular webbing strapping, and in some models multi-impact SXP liner technology, for dependable performance mile after mile.
