pretty cool story about how Austin starting wearing the Lifer Helmet. Here is is a nutshell. Dan and Chris from S1 are in the helmet lab and learn that all the soft foam helmets from all the helmet companies cannot pass the CPSC helmet test which is a slam from 7 ft. Ok.. so young gun Austin Poynter is blasting 8+ airs in the combi. So Chris called Gerry Poynter and strongly recommends that Austin try the S1 Lifer Helmet. The Lifer Helmet is CPSC certified and fits low on the head like a soft foam helmet. Gerry abides. Austin tries the helmet and likes it. Game on. Alot of the younger bowlriders started wearing the Lifer Helmet.
