Spud, Morgz and Cole / Survivor

All summer, California’s heat has been crazier than usual. We are sad to see it now burning horrendously, and wish everyone who is being effected that they stay safe and healthy. On a more cheerful note, we’d like to show you what a good day in the Cali heat looks like. Here are the boys shredding down this notoriously smooth NorCal gem, known as “Survivor.” But while the pavement was extra slick, and the tar snakes were extra sticky. All rocking the S1 Lifer Helmet.

Keeping the groms safe! https://s1helmets.com.au/keeping-the-groms-safe/ Thu, 28 Mar 2019 01:40:32 +0000 http://s1helmets.com.au/?p=3425 The safety of the next generation is so important - learn about children's helmet safety with S1 Helmets Australia.

Keeping the groms safe!

CHILD HELMET SAFETY IS IMPORTANT!

Helmet safety is important at all stages of life – but for a developing brain of a child, kid or adolescent major brain damage and head trauma can have significantly worse consequences – Making Child Helmet Safety (kid’s Helmet Safety) so critical.

That is why S1 is happy to have the S1 Helmets Mini Lifer as a cornerstone of our helmet lineup and kids skateboarding safety gear. A smaller helmet for smaller heads or younger riders. The S1 Mini Lifer Helmet is designed to be worn while riding your skateboard, bicycle, roller skates and scooter. The S1 Mini Lifer Helmet is the safest, best selling, and best fitting certified high impact and multiple impact child-helmet on the market . You can call it a kids skate helmet, kids bike helmet, kids roller derby helmet, kids roller skate helmet or kids scooter helmet because it offers the best protection while skating, biking and scooting. When you buy an S1 Mini Lifer Helmet you are buying the best. Great for kids, groms and adults with smaller heads. We batch test every production to make sure the S1 Mini Lifer Helmet meets and/or exceeds current helmet safety standards.

As kids get older their heads are constantly changing size, so to assure a safe and good fit we recommend changing out the liner as necessary and then upgrading to a regular lifer helmet when neccesary.

SKATEBOARDING’S ENDANGERED SPECIES BY BOB UMBEL https://s1helmets.com.au/skateboardings-endangered-species-by-bob-umbel/ Tue, 10 Jul 2018 00:50:10 +0000 http://s1helmets.com.au/?p=2689 The post SKATEBOARDING’S ENDANGERED SPECIES BY BOB UMBEL appeared first on S1 Helmets Australia.

Due to loss of habitat, a lack of breeding, cultural shifts and plain dumb luck, some of skating’s most entrenched characters, tribes and behaviors are going extinct. Here are some examples of vanishing acts. #1: The Vert Skater Once a thriving, if clearly unhinged, subculture of skateboarding, the Vert skater is now the White Rhinoceros; as rare and with a hide just as tough. If the Vert skater doesn’t breed in the next ten years, we will be forced to watch the long death march of a dying race. Breeding programs have been put in place, operating out of sanctuaries in a few select locations around the globe, but so far they have only been moderately successful. Sadly for the Vert skater, their only hope of increasing their tiny population lies in the grassroots and organic approach of skate events like the Florida Vert Series. It is a sliver of hope for what was once a prolific race of skaters. #2: The Skate Photographer Once protected by cameras that cost as much as a car and manual focus that took ten years to master, the skate photographer’s first stage of extinction came with the arrival of the digital cameras which had auto focus. The fierce tribe of sociopaths and loners initially resorted to violence and Canon 1D’s, but this first wave only made them more susceptible to further anti photographer viruses. They were reeling from Facebook and Instagram photo sharing platforms, when Go Pro came in and dealt the death blow. You see 98 percent of professional skate photographers couldn’t actually skate (if they could, why would they be skate photographers?) and once pro skaters started taking pictures of the themselves, the game was up. Pockets of resistance still exist, however, with Thrasher front covers now paying less than an egg and bacon roll at an Encinitas cafe, they are slowing starving to death. #3: Skate Grommet Abuse It’s a testament to the sick, depraved modern world we live in that grommets are treated with kindness instead of violence, and integrated rather than alienated. The ancient art of grommet abuse is sadly going the way of bongs, corporal punishment and smoking when pregnant, as being no longer acceptable in modern society. The ancient art is practised in small pockets in the more forward thinking parts of the country, but those kids getting abused for having the temerity to be young, defenseless or different are the lucky ones. No one knows what the effects will be of skating youth being forced to endure positive reinforcement and general good natured encouragement, but it can’t be beneficial. We might just have created a monster. #4: Skateboarding Folklore This might seem strange kids, but once upon a time skating used to have secrets. Oh and skaters actually downplayed, rather than amplified, their achievements. You actually gained credibility if you didn’t tell anyone about them. This led to levels of mystery and intrigue, where stories which were handed down, carefully, and of course with some sprinkling of bullshit, as skating folklore. Now though, we are all self publicists. Information travels, literally, at the speed of light. There is no folklore, it is extinct, crushed by digital technology and skater’s new found love of themselves. Bob Umbel is a lifelong skateboarder and organizer of the Florida Vert Series.

Testing Video: S1 Lifer Helmet Vs Soft Foam Helmet

#danfromS1 shows you how helmets are tested and shows you how regular soft foam skate helmets do not adequately buffer or disperse impact energy. This video also explains why the S1 Lifer Helmet is a better and safer helmet.

Impact Testing: S1 Lifer Helmet VS Soft Foam Helmet from S-One Helmet Co | S1 Helmets on Vimeo.

One of the most advanced, scientific and accurate ways to show how much better the S1 Lifer helmet is versus the traditional soft foam skate helmet is to actually test these in an accredited , independent, 3rd party testing facility.

This is the S1 Lifer Helmet which is constructed with our patented blend of EPS Fusion Foam this is a traditional soft foam skate helmet which is constructed with soft foam inserts.

We’re going to put helmets onto this headform that has an accelerometer in it that measures measures impact energy. The head form is connected to a computer that measures the amount of impact that gets the head in a simulated impact. If the helmet does not have adaquate protection it will fail the test (allows 300 G’s to enter head form) and could possibly cause a serious brain injury (or death).

Without any helmet on the head form if we bring this up to 6.5 feet and drop it down onto the hazard it going to generate 1000 G’s worth of force to the head form .

The reason you wear helmet is to buffer or disperse the amount of impact energy that gets to your head. In order to pass the high impact test the helmet must reduce 1000 G’s worth of energy to under 300 G’s. Anything over 300 G’s fails the test.

We have the soft foam helmet on the head form now we are going to bring it up to six and half feet – drop it from the drop tower and see how it performs.

Soft Foam Helmet allows 995 G’s to enter the headform. This helmet fails.

So we have the results here from the soft foam helmet. We had it up at 6.5 feet and dropped it down onto a flat surface which is generating 1000 Gs of energy to the head form this helmet only reduced the energy pulse 5 G’s. It got a peak accretion G of 995
So that means that all of the impact energy going straight through this helmet and getting to the headform. To pass this test you have to get a test under 300 G’s this more than 3x that amount. This helmet fails the high impact test.

We have the S1 Lifer Helmet on the headroom now. We are going to bring it up to 6.5 feet and drop it from the drop tower and see how it performs .

S1 Lifer Helmet allows 235 Gs to enter the headform. This helmet Passes.

So we have the testing results for the S1 Lifer helmet which we dropped from the same distance we dropped the soft foam helmet which generated 1000 G’s worth of energy.

The S1 Lifer Helmet took that 1000 Gs and reduced it to 253 Gs which is a pass for the the high impact test.

Basically what your seeing is that the soft foam helmet is allowing the impact energy to go directly thought the helmet and get to the headform. But the S1 Lifer Helmet with the fusion foam is crushing that energy and dispersing out and reducing it 4x the amount the soft foam helmet did. The S1 Lifer Helmet passes the high impact test.

What we wanted to do today was show you in a scientific manner the difference between how the S1 Lifer helmet and a soft foam helmet absorb impact energy what we found was that the Lifer helmet with fusion foam reduced and absorbed impact energy much more effectively than soft foam helmets.

The S1 Lifer Helmet – a better, safer helmet.
