I play roller derby, and this helmet has saved me from several injuries. I was able to go to a local skatepark shop, and try on the helmets to see which one would fit. According to the Protec sizing, I would be a medium, but when I tried on the helmets, the large fit exactly the way I need it to; snug, but not tight. Keep that in mind when purchasing a helmet online. Otherwise a sound investment, and a fantastic purchase. I love this helmet.

Size: MediumColor: Deep Red Verified Purchase
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.

This is the Pro-Tec "Skate Helmet". Not certified, but good finish, good materials, and good looks. Fit is comfy too. They run small, so order one size up. I normally wear a "Large" Motorcycle helmet, and an "Extra Large" Protec.

It wasn't disclosed in the description that these helmets do not meet any safety standards. There is even warning label on the box and on the helmet that the helmet "Offers Minimal protection", and "does not meet any safety standards". It does have some protection foam, but it isn't CE/CPSC certified like it says in the description.

It has a great look to it, and is very lightweight. Other helmets make you look like you've got a mushroom on your head, this one is form fitting and very light.

Most certified helmets are a "one hit wonder", meaning they are designed to absorb impact by destroying the helmet instead of your head. Now if you were expecting many small bumps, this helmet would work, but for preventing brain truama this isn't certified.

Bottom line - Good comfort, light weight, and good looks, but not a certified safety helmet.

I bought this helmet for my wife. The helmet looks awesome, it looks very quality and from handling it, it seems to be excellent quality, however the size is definitely meant for children. Based on the sizing chart from the manufacturers website (for adult helmets), my wife needed a small. So, we ordered a small. When it arrived she tried it on and it was way too small. My 11 year old daughter tried it on and it was even to small for her. It fit my 8 year old son the best, but it was pink so we opted to send it back instead of making him wear a pink helmet. We're going to order another, however this time we'll be ordering a large.

I wear a 17 3/4" hat and the XL fit my head perfectly. This helmet is strong and not bulky like some other helmets I have tried. I use it for bike riding and it keep my head relatively cool.

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: 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.

Yeah! I ordered a Large adult Punk pink! It's awesome! It's well ventilated and light weight, but definitely offers tons of protection (ok, not that I've fallen on my head lately, but it's got a good protection vibe). Also a bonus, the extra bright color is nice because it is easy to see for motorists. I thought the pink might be too much, but it really isn't... honestly even without the bright color it's already kind of garish, it's a skate helmet for crying out loud. Add in the punk pink color and we bring it to wonderful new levels of ridiculous fabulous, fashionably questionable FUN! Love it, wouldn't change a thing. I found the company size chart to be accurate. I was borderline between a Large and an XL. My husband has an XL (black, not fab pink) so I tried it on. It fit fine, but I wanted a snugger fit so I got the large and it is perfecto.
