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.

....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.
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.
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.
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.
VERY IMPORTANT...SIZING RUNS VERY SMALL.
I got a large and its tight. Then again, proper fit should be snug. Too many kids wear their helmets too lose.
For $11 though it's a good buy.
