id go with the pro tec the other helmets are sick with the visor but if u ask the local pro shop they will tell you those should be for rails only theve had cases where people will fall on sumthin big and cause neck problems, the protec doesnt got the fancy bill hey id rather have a workin neck then a fancy bill on the helmet go with the pro tec
Does anyone know of a company that makes a helmet for kids or one that is 51cm. I have a small head and I can't find a helmet smaller than 53cm which is what I have now and I had to put my own foam padding in it to make it kinda fit. Any help would be great.
DON'T WEAR A HELMET, IT ONLY INCREASES THE IMPACT OF THE FALL!!!! Just kidding, I think that argument is hilarious. I wear the Ace Wake and love it and my buddy wears the Shred Ready in the fancy blue-carbon. It looks better than mine but I like the ear flaps.
I just was in the market and looked at the Pro Tec which is a great helmet and I looked at the Triple Eight, both are skate helmets and about the same price. I went with the Triple Eight for the fit and the comfort. The Triple Eight has a terry cloth liner all away around your head which is unmatched comfort and can just throw in the washer when it gets that lake funk smell. Down fall is it does hold more water then what the Pro Tec does. Good Luck with your decision.
I have to give props to http://www.xsportsprotective.com/ for service. I used the link Mike H posted above and bought my helmet there. I ordered a helmet that is too small (my fault) and they exchanged it right away and no questions asked, even cross-shipped me the new helmet so I could use the new helmet that weekend. It's hard to find good service these days and I just wanted to give a mention to these guys for the great service.
