This helmet can be used as necessary protective gear for skateboarding, in-line skating ("rollerblading"), roller derby, and scooters. This helmet is not for bicycle use. As well, at Triple Eight we know that sweating while skateboarding sucks, so the techies here listened to the top riders, went back to the drawing board and developed the patented Sweatsaver liner that helps eliminate the smells, the stinging and the eye blurring that occurs from sweat. The revolutionary liner has moisture-wicking layers that limit sweat drippage, an anti-bacterial treatment to make it virtually stink proof, and a 360° wrap around design so that there is absolutely no liner separation. With the terry cloth construction, you can kiss that itchy head feeling goodbye. The Sweatsaver liner is standard in all rubberized helmets and pro helmets, and is also sold individually in sizes XS – XL.

Frequently Asked Questions
Could I wear this while riding my bike in the skateparks?
This helmet is recommended for skating & skateboarding only. The impact resistance totally saved my head. But, it was a low speed event. Basic physics: Force = Mass x Accelleration. Less force is produced on a low speed crash, so you only need a padded soft shell to absorb impact. On a higher speed bike crash (greater accelleration), the softer padded shell could not protect against the greater impact energy. That's why bike helmets have a harder shell that can absorb & disperse the greater impact energy, whereas a softer shell like this helmet would absorb & focus the greater impact energy into the skull. It's a better helmet for skating mainly because its wicked comfy, while providing great low energy impact resistance.
How does it fit?
As long as you measure the circumference of your head and use their sizing chart you'll be fine.
Would this helmet be sufficent for rock climbing?
