ProTec Skateboard Helmets and ProTec Bike/Skate Helmets
ProTec helmets come in different versions: from Protec skateboard helmets for skateboarding, roller blading, or derby to a dual-use ProTec skateboard helmet for skate and bike use.
ProTec skateboard helmets protect the tops, sides, and back of your head and, for most skaters, a ProTec skateboard helmet will provide just the right level of helmet safety. Pro-Tec skate helmets have a comfortable soft foam lining and are designed to absorb multiple small impacts.
If you need a mountain bike helmet / BMX helmet AND a skateboard helmet, check out a dual-use ProTec bike/skate helmet. This type of ProTec helmet meets the CPSC bicycle helmet safety standard, allowing you to enjoy two sports with the same piece of safety equipment.
Not sure which ProTec skateboard helmet to buy?
ProTec helmets are made with one of three different kinds of liners: 2-stage soft foam, stiff expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, or surface-activated expanded polypropylene (SXP). Each Pro-Tec helmet 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.
ProTec Helmet Liners
Soft foam liner designed for skate helmets only
Stiff foam designed for bike/skate helmets; single impact
Surface-activated polypropylene designed for bike/skate helmets; multi-impact
If you only need a helmet for skateboarding, check out a ProTec skateboard helmet like the ProTec Classic Skate helmet, the iconic ProTec Classic Bucky Lasek translucent helmet, a ProTec Classic Full Cut Skate, or ProTec Ace Skate helmet. Each of these ProTec 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 skateboard helmets with a 2-stage liner do NOT meet a specific safety standard (which is not unusual for skateboard helmets). So if you want your skateboard helmet to do double duty as a BMX helmet or mountain bike helmet, you should go for one with an EPS liner or an SXP liner (i.e., a bike/skate helmet).
ProTec Helmets with EPS Liner. Pro-Tec bike/skate helmets have either an expanded polystyrene (EPS) or surface-activated expanded polypropylene (SXP) liner. EPS foam liners are the industry standard for action sport helmets; however, they are not multi-impact. EPS liners offer greater impact protection than the 2-stage foam liner (meaning that your head will be better protected from a big impact, like a bike crash), 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. ProTec's EPS foam liner meets Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards for bicycle helmets. This liner is available on the ProTec Classic Bike/Skate, B2 Bike/Skate, and Ace Bike/Skate helmets. ProTec snowboard helmets also feature this liner.
ProTec Helmets with SXP Liner. 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: High-impact protection that is designed to rebound after an impact without condensing permanently, potentially allowing for protection even after an impact.
