The Original, Since 1973

The Classic Silhouette started it all. The most famous helmet in action sports is often imitated but never truly duplicated; that's because no other brand has over 40 years of protective heritage in action sports.

PROTEC Original Classic Skate Helmet

2-stage soft-foam skateboard helmet (non-certified)

Timeless skate style backed by four decades of protective gear design.

  • Lightweight helmet with timeless style
  • 2-Stage premium soft-to-hard foam
  • Moisture wicking liner
  • 11 strategically placed vent holes
  • Easily adjustable nylon webbed straps
  • High-impact ABS shell
  • Does not meet CPSC, ASTM, or NZ certifications.

Mastery Over Perspiration

All Classic Skate helmets are equipped with a moisture wicking liner. PROTEC Original liners unique benefits come from its hydrophobic (moisture-hating) polyester and hydrophilic (moisture-loving) nylon. This combination creates a 2-zone Comfort Lining resulting in a push-pull effect that pulls perspiration off the skin and deploys it to the outer layer to rapidly dry. PROTEC Original liners are non-wrinkling, resists odor and mildew, is breathable and quick-drying.

Protection for Progression

2-Stage Soft Foam Liner

Low profile and lightweight for a snug and comfortable fit our 2-Stage premium liner transitions from soft to hard, away from the head toward the shell of the helmet.

High-Impact ABS Shell

The Hardshell construction is made of a durable, high-density, injection molded ABS shell. Blue and Pink Retro models have high-density polyethylene shells.

11 Strategically Placed Vents

The PROTEC Classic shell has 11 strategically placed vents. Each one does its part to exhaust hot air out, and bring cold air in, to keep you cooler & drier during those long sessions.

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.

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.

Size: XLColor: Matte Gray Verified Purchase
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.

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.

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.

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.

Size: LColor: Black Verified Purchase
This is Protecs classic skate helmet, meaning it its not certified for safety rains because it is meant for multiple relatively low speed impacts, such as those found when skating in a skate park or street skating. The 2 stage foam is good for many impacts, and when worn out, can be replaced easily and cheaply, unlike eps or sxp helmets. It will run about $10 to buy new pads.

These helmets are also let profile than the eps or sxp helmets because if the softer foam

Yes they do fit pretty tight, but that is so they don't slip around on your head. If your close to the upper range in size, you can get away with the next size up, however I would recommend stay in your size four the proper tight fit that holds the helmet in place during impact.

Size: MediumColor: Punk Pink Verified Purchase
The product description states: "these classic helmets feature a tough aero-styled ABS shells and CE/CPSC certified EPS foam liners". But when the helmet arrived the warning label on the box says: "Warning, this helmet offers minimal protection to head injury, and DOES NOT meet any standard safety regulations".

My first thought is, "Why would any helmet company make a product that does not protect your head?". My second is, "Why would the product description not include the information on the warning label?"

If you are going to buy this product, PLEASE make sure that the helmet you receive is in fact going to protect your head, as a traumatic brain injury (from which I suffer) should be protected against at all costs.
