Protec helmet first came into existence in the 1970s, a revolutionary time in skateboarding. Newly developed wheels brought about better traction, allowing skater's to push the limits. This however meant that the founders of Protec had a front seat to the risks poised by these higher levels of performance, head injuries. So they set out to build Protec helmets for people who where demanding more of themselves and their gear. Sporting a streamlined, but still classic look, Protec has constantly evolved and expanded their line of products, bringing about more protection in a unique package. For the people who run Protec, its all about the fun, but for them, it also has to be realistic. Its in their motto, "Protection for Progression". You can't improve your skills and push the limit if your sitting in a hospital bed recovering from a head injury. But with a proper helmet, and Protec knows how to build them, you can take the hits and keep on going.
