This edit shows how COOL you can be riding street and at the same time being safe. He can toothpick-hang five a downrail and tooth over double peg 180 out. In one clip he cut it pretttyy close from being hit by a semi-truck. Sick edit and the helmet makes it THAT much better.

I don't get the stigma about "park : helmet. Street : no helmet" If anything you'd get hit by a car , run into an object or have people get in your way riding street. Personally I ride a helmet for both. I know people have their own opinions and i'm not judging but can anyone explain what's the deal? So if I can 720 a 5 set with a helmet it's not "street" enough?

Coming from the one who made a thread about helmets not being safe? Hah.

Anyway, I never learn much on street, and when I do it usually has very minimal risks. I dont like using a helmet for street, but I ALWAYS wear a hat. Cant ride without one. It makes me feel safe.

I wear my helmet religiously at skateparks (even ones that dont require them) because I really push myself there and frequently take some decent spills.

Not what I was saying at all, nor would I recommend somebody using a hate as a safety measure. Way to twist my words.

To clarify-
I (ME, personally) feel insecure riding without SOMETHING on my head. I cant stand wearing a helmet for street and dont find it necessary, so I always wear a hat. It also keeps the sun out of my eyes and usually doesn't fall off if it fits right.
I push myself alot at park and fall a decent amount, so I ALWAYS wear my helmet at park.

I make threads that are to get the people going ! This is my opinion. The other one was merely a link.

I wasnt able to watch this on my own computer. I viewed it now and to anyone who knows my helmet thread , fuucckk uncertified helmets. I'm not wearing a helmet if it isn't protecting me. Chad Kerley was sooo surprised. Like if he was like "damn" that says alot.

I'll get a certified one

Whenever i ride i always put my helmet on. I love the new bell segment helmet, it is so comfy. it feels like one of the non certified skate helmets. Took a good one to the head the other day at the park, i know it wasn't street but it would have sucked if i wasn't wearing it.

^this is a fact. I personally don't wear a helmet riding street because I don't do the craziest stuff. That being said, if I'm learning something new or if what I'm doing seems a bit risky or uncomfortable I'll wear it. I always wear it at parks because of the size of ramps, the amount of air, and plus I suck at park haha

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

THat was a good edit.
I personally dont wear a helmet in street because:
1. The one i have is non certificated.
2. It feels like shit.
3. I dont push myself that much and i dont take risks.
4. If i am doing ¨dangerous¨ i wear one.

Helmets all the time for this guy (except solo flatland sessions) but ALWAYS if there are younger kids around.

Honestly anyone who claims helmets are gay or wouldn't help is a complete idiot, and should hit their head just hard enough to knock something loose.

They should also be castrated for being stupid.

Also 30 grand for a head injury and catscans or 40 bucks for a helmet and looking "gay" or stupid, give me looking "gay" or stupid ANY DAY.

Plus the kids who say that think they are somehow "cooler" than other riders, and most tend to think the same about brakes, and riding anything other than "street".

@bikect Thanks for the comment and picture ! Wanted one might I'll go with a Protec x Cult I think. Not sure though.

@dave Yaahh exactly ! No point looking cool if you're dead....my moto....at times.

@Phabeon I've had alot of Protecs and they are amazing so I highly suggest those. Anyone BUT the Bucky Lasek...just watch the 2nd link and you'll know why. 1 meter high fall could kill you ; if you loop out full speed to your head you're fucked. I would just in case.
