Scooter enthusiasts and skaters have loved Pro-Tec’s innovative line of helmets that combine safety and style. Their latest helmet, the Classic skate helmet is highly adjustable, breathable, and comfortable. It’s also tough enough to handle high-impact accidents.
The Classic Pro-Tec skate helmet can be used for skateboarding, scooter riding, inline skating and more. It features a hard-shell construction that will protect you from serious injury in the event of an accident or crash. This helmet is available in six sizes, so you’ll be sure to get a custom fit.
Overview and Features
Pro-Tec has been in business for over forty years. Considering they produce some of the most innovative models of skate helmets on the market, it’s easy to see how they’ve remained so popular throughout the years.
While they tend to focus more on retro styles of skate helmets, many skaters choose these helmets specifically for their comfortable liners and breathable design.
When you have the best electric scooter, you need top of the line protection as you commute to work or enjoy a leisurely ride around town.
This helmet is highly adjustable, which is a huge selling point. Most manufacturers only offer one to three size options, but Pro-Tec offers six, so you can be sure you get a helmet that offers the perfect fit.
But comfort can also be a major factor as well when it comes to choosing the right helmet. This model by Pro-Tec comes with a two-stage foam liner, which provides plenty of padding as it conforms to your head.
Some riders may prefer a full coverage helmet, while others find that style to be overkill. The Classic offers just the right amount of coverage to keep you safe yet allows for a more breathable design that can promote longer use.
The taste of the classic 70’s retro style combined with modern safety standards is what makes this model one of Pro-Tec’s leading helmets.
This helmet is available in eight color options including gloss white, gloss black, matte gray, rasta green, rubber gray, satin black, spitfire, and punk pink.
You may think that breathability isn’t a priority with helmets, but a helmet that isn’t breathable not only affects the wearer’s comfort, it also can be a major safety issue. Helmets that lack enough vents can cause intense sweating, especially on a hot day.
The sweat will have nowhere to go once it has soaked the interior liner. As the sweat pours into your eyes it can have a major impact on your visibility and performance and can blind you during a ride.
Because of this, manufacturer’s such as Pro-Tec have taken helmet breathability up a notch by including more vents throughout the helmet’s design. The Classic is equipped with a total of eleven vents, for ultimate breathability.
The helmet’s design consists of HDPE form fitting high-density polyethylene. This material is highly flexible, which means it will work with a wide variety of head shapes and sizes. The shell is lined with the two-stage foam liner. This is a very durable helmet that’s designed to withstand minor and high impact accidents.
This type of life-saving helmet is a must whether you ride the back streets or use your scooter as a daily commuter.
It has a half-helmet design that some skaters prefer due to the helmet’s improved breathability.
However, if you’re looking for a helmet that provides more protection we recommend the Pro-Tec Full Cut skate helmet.
When shopping for a new helmet, most buyers are looking for helmets that are safety certified. Unfortunately, this helmet is not CE, CPSC, or ASTM certified.
Since this model is not safety certified, it should be replaced immediately after an accident, even if there is no noticeable damage.
The fact that this helmet is not certified can be a major deal breaker for some.
The soft two-layer foam liner is made out of a lightweight material that’s comfortable, conforming, and snug. It does not meet certification standard ratings for action helmets. The two layers work to pull moisture from the skin while deploying it to the outer layer in order to dry it out at a rapid rate. The liner is highly breathable, and mildew and odor resistant.
While this helmet received plenty of positive feedback regarding fit and comfort, many people noted that initially, the interior padding can be very stiff and uncomfortable. Others claimed that the helmet becomes more comfortable the more you wear it, stating you can expect a one-month break-in period.
This helmet is equipped with soft nylon web straps that are highly adjustable. The tough nylon straps will allow you to secure the helmet for a custom fit that will prevent the helmet from flying off during a fall.
If you’re just learning how to ride a scooter, then you need a helmet that can provide ultimate protection against falls and crashes. Beginners will benefit from a helmet that offers a breathable design and better than average coverage.
This is a lightweight helmet that features a classic skate helmet style that scooter riders and skaters love. It also comes equipped with a moisture wicking liner and eleven vents, so you’ll be sure to stay dry, cool, and comfortable during a ride, without the worry of sweat running into your eyes on a hot day. The nylon webbed straps are highly adjustable, so you’ll get a comfortable, secure fit.
