Bowl-shaped helmets that completely cover your head are the ideal solution for skating, skateboarding and scootering. When falling is all part and parcel of your sport, a helmet is more than just an accessory. Helmets protect urban riders' heads.
The shape of the helmet (covering the back of the neck and ears) is designed for doing boardsports on asphalt. Polystyrene structure and external ABS shell. There is an easy-to-use dial at the back of the neck for adjusting the helmet. The straps (dividers) have double buckles and can be repositioned to get a precise fit. Last but not least, the silky fused foam guarantees optimal durability and comfort.
What sizes are available?
Two sizes are available depending on the colour: S (for a head size of 50 to 54cm) and M (for a head size of 55 to 58cm).
What does the EN 1078 standard cover?
EN1078 is a European standard concerning the test methods and requirements for cycling, skateboarding and skating helmets. This standard covers the following aspects: construction, including field of vision; shock-absorbing properties; fastening system features, including the chinstrap and tightening systems; markings and information.
When should you replace a helmet?
Helmets are designed to protect your head from an impact. From just one impact. If you fall, even if it doesn't seem like the helmet is damaged, you need to replace it: it could be weakened or cracked in invisible places... and thus no longer provide protection. You should also consider replacing your helmet if it has gotten old. After 5 years, certain materials start to age, especially if the helmet is stored in a cold and/or damp place.
Decathlon store return policy for PPE.
A helmet is PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that must meet the requirements of the EN 1078 standard. Since it is impossible to guarantee that a helmet has not been exposed to impacts after purchase, it is impossible for us to certify that it is still able to provide the protection required by the standard. A returned helmet can therefore not be resold. To prevent possible returns, please take care to check a helmet's suitability (model/size/colour) before purchasing.
Store in a dry place, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
