Keep Your Head Safe With a Pro Scooter Helmet
Pro scooter helmets are arguably the most important piece of protection to wear when you are on your trick scooter.

Moreover, wearing a pro scooter helmet will also give you the confidence to perform new tricks and stunts.
What Is Special About Trick Scooter Helmets?
There are several elements that distinguish scooter helmets from standard bicycle helmets. For example, scooter helmets are designed to protect the back of your head compared to standard bicycle helmets. Pro scooter helmets are also multi-impact resistant, meaning that they can withstand numerous smaller impacts without needing to be replaced. The helmets marked with the EN 1078 certification indicate that they are also approved for skateboarding, skating and cycling.
How Should a Scooter Helmet Fit?

The helmet should fit snugly on your head without wobbling and without having to compromise on comfort. Modern helmets are designed to be comfortable and will come with foam padding. Many models will also have additional padding which you can take out and remove, allowing you to fit the helmet perfectly to size.
