REKD Protection strives to create distinctive, attractive products that provide optimum protection, support and comfort whilst giving the premium look and feel that modern riders demand.
Action sports create high expectations for protective gear and, while there are many products and brands to choose from these days, REKD brings you high quality British designed products that provide great comfort, distinct support and premium quality protection where it matters.
Our key focus is on safety and structure. After much research, testing, hand-sculpting, prototyping and moulding, the team believes that it has created one of the toughest, best fitting and most comfortable certified helmets on the market today. Whether you ride a longboard, skateboard, BMX or roller skates, REKD helmets will give you optimum protection and, thanks to the low-fitting, lightweight design, they will not hinder your performance, making it suitable for all action sports.
When purchasing helmets and pads, a lot of people look for packaging stating that the product meets certain test standards, but not everyone knows what these mean.
All of our helmets conform to EN1078 test standards, a European standard published in 1997, meaning that they are suitable for all non-motorised action sports.
This test standard excludes snow sports mainly as they don’t have an additional warm liner, which is normally a requirement for snowboard and ski helmets. EN1078 defines the requirements and test methods for bicycle helmets, skateboard helmets and roller skate helmets. It covers the construction and shape of the helmet including field of vision, shock absorption, retention system properties (chin strap and fastening / closure devices as well as markings and information).
Our helmets also conform to CPSC test standards, which means they meet the standard safety requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Your safety is key, so we have ensured that all of our products are fully tested and certified.
Everything about REKD is designed by our team in the UK.
Months of research and development have made sure that our helmets not only look great but that they truly perform!
The EPS inner shell is engineered to be a low volume, snug fit and the weight saving channels within the EPS ensures a lightweight, durable and well ventilated helmet that doesn’t compromise the vital structure and support, essential to a certified helmet.
How To Measure Your Head
Using a measuring tape, measure the widest part of your head.
This is usually just above your eyebrows and ears.
The size guide below will tell you which size REKD helmet you should wear, based on your head measurement
All REKD helmets come with two sets of padding inserts to ensure you get the optimum fit.
The helmet needs to sit properly and fit correctly to give the best protection. The helmet should not be too tight or too loose, extra padding is included and more padding is available to purchase separately to give you more size options.
Everyone’s head is a different shape. If 4mm padding it is too loose but 6mm padding is too tight, try mixing the padding, such as 4mm padding on the front and 6mm padding on the rear, or the other way around. This will help you find the perfect fit.
You should not wear your helmet too far forward as it may block your vision, or too far backwards on your head as it may expose your forehead.
