Pro-Tec was founded in the early 1970's around the same time as the first urethane skateboard wheels were introduced. For many reasons, this was historically significant time in teh evolution of skateboarding. These new wheels provided much better traction and speed and allowed skaters to push the difficulty of maneuvers to new levels. Bigger, faster, and more technical tricks meant bigger consequences. Pro-Tec helmets were quickly adopted by the same pioneering skaters who were forming the foundation of modern skateboarding by riding transitions and vertical walls in the backyard pools of Southern California.
With the most recognizable style of helmets, Pro-Tec designs are often imitated but never duplicated. Today, Pro-Tec provides innovative technology while still maintaining their classic style and providing the very best in protective equipment.
Pro-Tec is the original action sports protective gear company and continues to support and protect riders around the world so they can keep expressing and progressing.
