This is a classic skate helmet which is not certified for anything, NOT the classic bike/skate cross-certified helmet that the description indicates. The shell is the same but the foam liners are completely different. It's a decent helmet for what it is but it's a multi-impact helmet and not suitable for road bike use or downhill mountain bike. The two stage foam liner is more comfortable than a bike helmet liner so I'm thinking about keeping it for backwoods trail riding where low hanging tree branches and low speed falls are my only enemies but I'll have to get something different for road use.

I rarely, if ever, write Amazon reviews but it felt necessary for this product. From the picture it may appear that this helmet provides a nice thick foam around the circumference of the lid, but I can assure you it does not. It comes with 3 pieces of orange foam that hardly stick on the velcro provided in the helmet, leaving many gaps and a minimal amount of protection. In fact, it is so UNprotective that Pro-tec provides 3 warning stickers stating that "this product provides minimal protection against impacts and does not meet any established safety standard."

....Do not buy this for protection. Bern makes similar looking helmets for those looking for something more sleek than the average bicycle helmet. For skaters, Bell makes extremely similar looking helmets that meet safety standards.

So, I bought this helmet on the recommendation of reddit's r/longboarding, and I felt more or less secure in the purchase given the recommendation, and on the whole, I still do.

But when the product arrived at my house, I was MORE than surprised to find at least three or four different stickers, labels and warnings which all made it clear that this helmet has not met or been tested at any helmet safety regulations, anywhere. This is a nice helmet, it is a comfortable helmet, and yet THIS IS A HELMET THAT HAS NOT BEEN TESTED TO MEET ANY CERTIFICATIONS FOR SAFETY. AT. ALL.

Again, it's a nice helmet, it fits comfortably, and I don't plan on returning it because it seems sturdy enough. All the same, I feel that if NOT MEETING ANY CERTIFIED SAFETY STANDARDS is important enough to be included and posted several times on the helmet itself, IT SHOULD BE IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO BE CLEARLY INCLUDED IN THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION.

So I'd say the helmet if 5 stars, but I give it 3 because I feel like the marketing here is a little deceptive.

classic helmet and my first helmet. I ordered a XXl helmet and it fit perfectly as my head is big.It looks plain and I feel a mature helmet to wear, I'm not big for design and corporate logos.I never bought a helmet before and wanted a skate style helmet like this because it looks to offer better protection.

As stated this helmet does not reach the requirements by law for street use, but it works well for what I intend to use it on.

My gopro will be mounted to the top, this is a light weight helmet with a good fit. It is comfortable and I feel as if I were to take a fall it would help. I wear a 7 3/8 hat or a XL fitted hat and this Helmet fits perfectly.

I need a size 7 3/4-8 1/4 hat. I assumed that the XL would be good. It fit pretty tight. I took out the padding and stuck them under a couple 45 lb weights for a few hours and it fit perfectly.

Looks good and protects my noggin.

The helmet is really nice. I would only caution that they run a little small. Bought this for my 11 year old son and i should have gone with the next size up. My kids head is rather large but I assumed a large would be big enough. It fit but was a little snug, otherwise would be a perfect rating.

I can confirm you don't get the helmet in the picture...
What is pictured is NOT what you get! The picture shows the model with the EPS hard foam (making it crash rated). What you get is just the plastic shell with the soft foam pads. It's enough to protect from small bumps but a true "head first crash".
