 Choosing a Helmet

  • Make sure the helmet fits you well
  • Is certified - meets the standards by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
  • Has adequate ventilation
  • Fastens securely and has adjustable straps
  • Full face options, such as S One Gen 2 Visored Helmet, often can be worn with or without the face piece and makes this a popular choice when playing contact sports.




Caring for your Gear

The best option is to machine wash following these suggestions.

  • use the gentle cycle
  • use cold water
  • use a small amount of detergent, no not use bleach
  • when the machine has filled with water, pause it for approximately 30 minutes
  • secure velcro and do not wash with other items
  • for extra care use mesh bags 
  • Hang to dry and do not use dryer.

For daily maintenance, NokOut is recommended.  NokOut is a powerful odour eliminator that targets odours without the use of enzymes or harsh chemicals. NokOut uses an oxidation process to break down odour molecules at the source. NokOut is 100% Biodegradable, Fragrance Free, Non-Toxic and Hypoallergenic.

For best results, allow gear to dry prior to spraying with NokOut.



Cushions and Bushings

They are often forgotten and should be replaced every 6 months.  Cushions vary in hardness.  Their set up can be experimented with to get the most from your skates.

 The softer the cushion the more laterally agile you will be but you'll be sacrificing explosiveness off your edges.  On the other hand, harder cushions are going to feel stiffer under pressure which is going to result in more lateral explosiveness.
