I really like this helmet. I have already taken a few hard hits and it is going strong. I ride bmx and regularly hit 6' tall jumps. Protec has always been the helmet that I trust. I have received several concussions from tricks gone bad, but if I hadn't been wearing a helmet, it would have been a lot worse. The thing about the Protec classic skate helmet is the sizing. My head measures 23.2" around, which is the minimum in the xl size range, but the helmet is still relatively loose. The helmet stays on my head, but I would have preferred a slightly tighter fit. I also tried the large version of this same helmet, and it was way to tight. So if you are somewhere in between the size increments, the helmet won't fit perfectly. This is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Other than that, the helmet is perfect. And the green is really bright.

Not into BMX and tricks. More into mountain biking and downhill. Got this helmet for riding around street and trails. I just didn't want those helmets that everyone has (canadian tire mountain bike helmets LOL).
No complaints at all. I thought ventilation would be a problem but it's good enough for pounding on your pedals on trails under the sun. Sizing is good and fits well, I got the XL size. I usually wear 7 1/2 or 7 3/4 hats. Alot of quality and style all for a very good price. Awesome helmet from Pro-tec.

My 12 year old son was luckily wearing this helmet when he got hit by a car while riding his bicycle. The top of the helmet hit the car's windshield and completely shattered it, but my son did not even sustain a concussion. The helmet got scratched but did not crack or break. I am fairly certain it saved his life or at the very least prevented a horrible head injury. We are so grateful to this company for making such an outstanding product!

I was really excited to receive this helmet so I was quite disappointed to find that it was too small. It's a pretty small helmet so I guess it is an XL for a child because it is definitely not for an adult. The vendor did an excellent job getting this item out to me quickly so I would order from them in the future. Unfortunately, I will have to return this item because of the sizing.

I am 74 years old. I started riding my one speed bike in July 2011. I did not wear, or think I needed a helmet as I was riding on bike trails, and not on the streets. I have upgraded to a geared bgike and since I was now going to ride the streets as well, my family insisted I wear a helmet. I really liked the look and especially the price of the Protec helmet. Unfortunatly I ordered the wrong size. Buying through Amazon is such a bonus. I was able to return the helmet and receive the correct size in almost no time. The helmet fits great, is so comfortable that I almost forget I have it on.

Size: X-LargeColor: Matte Charcoal
I got a Pro-tec classic skate helmet a while ago, I'm a referee for a local womens' roller derby league, and as referees, we travel sometimes hundreds of miles to referee. Roller derby is a full-contact sport played on roller skates, so quality of gear is always a paramount concern, even if you're a ref. Quality and favorite brands of gear are frequently discussed, and to my surprise, Pro-tec gear is really viewed as entry-level for beginners.

Two days ago, during a game, I was taken out by a skater who was hit out of bounds, and at full speed, I got tripped and toppled over, and my head bounced off the hardwood skating rink floor "like a basketball", as the EMTs said. This isn't the first time I've done this, and previously, there was always some degree of instant, disorienting pain or discomfort. To my surprise, just after I heard the loud crack of the plastic shell hitting the floor, there was actually no pain whatsoever, I barely felt the impact, and the hit must have been hard enough to make some noise, because the fans and the EMTs on the other side of the rink heard it. I was immediately able to get up and resume what I was doing. I was soon checked for a concussion, but did not have one.

A few months ago, I fell backwards at a practice and hit my head on the floor at probably the same force (I'm not a small guy) in a competitor's helmet that is more popular in the roller derby world, and the instant pain was almost unbearable. Now that it's taken an impact, it's time to replace the Pro-tec, but I'll be getting another one. I also liked the look, and really liked the fit of the classic skate, vs. competitive brands. The classic skate was light and comfortable, and comes in plain colors if you just want something that looks decent.

This helmet is awesome. It looks and fits great. I ride BMX and skateboard and that means nasty spills so gotta have a helmet! Comfortable and doesn't squeeze my head like other helmets do. Just one thing, make sure you know what size you take! Re-shipping this can cost you alot of money. No wonder Pro-Tec is the trusted name in helmets. Buy this now!!!

I brought this helmet for general biking purposes, just to and from work so luckily I can say I haven't had any spills on it yet BUT it is defiantly the most comfy helmet you could want for these trips, the straps are a big thing for me, these tubular webbing never tug or pull at your skin but at the same time can withstand large tugs and scratches. It somehow manages to look amazing as well. I can vouch for the safety of this helmet as well, while never falling on this one, I have the same design but in a white water make called the Pro-tec Ace water helmet which I have taken a number of rocks and trees to and it in the course of kayaking. It has has never shown a hint of damage while always protecting me. All in all Pro-Tec is a great company, these guys make nothing but helmets so they have a wealth of knowledge to bring to the design.

Pro -
- Looks good
- High standard of safety
- Comfy fit
- Free Stickers (always a bonus)

Cons -
- Maybe the high price but really money shouldn't be a factor in helmet purchase,
