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.
Nape fit: wheel. Chinstrap fit: double buckle and sliding dividers for an easy and precise fit. Silky-soft foam pieces with a thermobonded finish that ensures durability and comfort.
What sizes are available?
S (50-54 cm head size); M (55-58 cm head size). S = 365 g. M = 390 g.
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.
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.
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.
