Modern Skateboarding was born in the backyard pools and homemade ramps of the 70's and skaters have always sought out the gnarliest places to practice their craft. Living up to its name, Pro-Tec has always existed to protect those who push the limits, supporting both top-level pros and beginners alike. Since the dawn of the skate revolution, now Pro-Tec pro Steve Caballero was photographed in the early 80's wearing a Pro-Tec helmet. Legendary photographers of the sport, Cassmus and Goodrich, have even earlier photos proving yet again Pro-Tec is the true original skate helmet.
Like the company itself, the Pro-Tec Skate Team is reflection of our legendary product. The brand finds depth with living legends Steve Caballero, Christian Hosoi, Lincoln Ueda, and Omar Hassan. X-Game and Dew tour champions Bucky Lasek and Pedro Barros add the excitement of speed and skill in competition, while Alex Perelson and Josh Borden represent the next crop of a new generation of skateboarding superstars.
Born on the dirt paths, ditches, and streets around the globe, BMX riding took flight in the early 70’s. As the sport pushed past its street roots and into the air, jumping and racing took precedence. The physical stakes grew, and the need for quality protective gear became a vital necessity. Pro-Tec has been there since the beginning at the heart of the sport and protecting those who want to see how fast, far and high they can go on their bikes.
