Triple 8 Helmet - Skate II MIPS Black Matte

The Triple 8 Skate II MIPS helmet has classic style, fully loaded. Triple 8 put everything they know about helmet tech into this updated version of their timeless shape. This helmet is Dual Certified for skate and bike riding. Also, it has a patented MIPS Technology low-friction layer to reduce rotational forces caused by angled impacts. They worked closely with top riders in derby, vert, longboarding, BMX, and commuting to refine the shape, fit, and function.

MIPS imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the head. This layer absorbs much of the rotational violence during a fall, reducing harm to the brain.

Triple 8 Helmet Features:

  • MIPS Technology: Developed by brain surgeons and scientists to reduce rotational forces to the brain caused by angled impacts
  • Dual Certified: Complies with ASTM Skate and U.S. CPSC Bike safety standards
  • Conehead EPS liner technology: Provides a lighter helmet with greater energy displacement on impact
  • Sizing: To ensure a perfect fit, measure the circumference of your head. Start in the middle of your forehead and match it with the sizes below:
    • XS/S 19.7 – 21.5 in (50 – 55 cm)
    • S/M 21.5 – 22.75 in (55 – 58 cm)
    • L/XL 22.75 – 24 in (58 – 61 cm)
