What’s inside a ProTec snowboard helmet?
ProTec snowboarding helmets build upon the company’s 35 years in the action sports industry. ProTec snowboard helmets use advanced technology to keep you safe but maintain an old-school classic style to keep you looking great on the slopes or in the pipe.
One of the most advanced innovations you’ll find in a ProTec snowboard helmet is multi-impact surface-activated expanded polypropylene (SXP). This light but stiff liner is a good choice for aggressive active sports enthusiasts. Most helmets are made with a protective liner of stiff EPS foam, which does a good job of protecting your head in a major impact. But EPS foam compresses and stays compressed after a hard hit. ProTec’s multi-impact SPX liner is designed to rebound after a hit without condensing permanently, potentially allowing for protection even after an impact.
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.
