Roller Derby Helmets: how to find the right roller derby helmet for youEven if your mother always said you have a hard head, you still need a helmet for roller derby. There are two basic helmet constructions to choose from when it comes to roller derby helmets:
1) A helmet with a soft foam interior liner (like the Triple 8 Brainsaver) designed for skate use only
2) A helmet with a stiff foam interior liner (like the ProTec Classic), designed for both skate and bike use (and which may carry a CPSC certification)

Derby players (and officials) fall a lot, especially when learning new moves and in the heat of a bout. Depending upon your speed, distance to the ground, ground hardness, and other factors, you can suffer a concussion or other serious head injury. Don't mess with roller derby helmet safety. Get yourself a new, good quality roller derby helmet and make sure it fits well.
Roller derby helmets have one of two constructions: a soft foam liner or a hard foam liner. The type you choose is based on personal preference and what activities you will be doing while you are wearing your helmet.
Soft foam (or Skate Only) helmets have a plush interior liner and are intended to protect against multiple, low-force impacts commonly associated with sports like roller derby, inline skating, and skateboarding. "Soft foam" roller derby helmets may or may not be skate certified. (Note that lack of such a certification is not unusual and does not mean that your helmet isn’t safe.)
Hard foam (or bike/skate) helmets have a stiff EPS foam liner, like that of a traditional bicycle helmet. They are mainly intended to sustain one large impact. Hard foam helmets with an EPS liner are typically CPSC certified for bike use. They can also be used while doing other activities, such as roller derby, skateboarding, or inline skating.
