Not too expensive
Stops you from splattering your brains on the pavement!
Helmets are still classed as 'uncool'
I wont let my son skate unless he is wearing a helmet so you can imagine the battle we have been having over the last few months. We finally saw the Target Union Jack Skate Helmet in our local skate shop, it wasn't that expensive and he liked the design so we were onto a winner. He says it is very comfortable and although it feels different to when you're not wearing one he says you soon get used to it.
He still doesn't like wearing it but now some of his friends have started to buy helmets aswell - the different styles allow them to express their 'individualness'... apparently! - But to be honest I don't really care why they wear them aslong as they do - skate safe!
