For the first time, Pro-Tec and Volcom, two iconic action sports brands, are collaborating on an exclusive helmet collection. The Volcom X Pro-Tec skate helmet debuts Summer 2018, with two snow helmets launching Winter 2018.

“Our collaboration with Volcom is a great way to celebrate Pro-Tec’s 45th Anniversary,” says R.P. Bess Pro-Tec Global Brand Director. “With Volcom’s creative direction and Pro-Tec’s classic styling, these helmets are a must-have for skaters and snowboarders.”  

“I was naturally excited to work with Pro-Tec having worn them throughout my vert career and to be able to instigate the never-been-done swirl injection mold [for Volcom] was what got me super hyped.” Remy Stratton, Volcom SVP of Global Skate and Snow.

Pro-Tec’s Classic and Full-Cut helmets received the Volcom treatment with two distinct colorways. The first helmet to hit shelves this Summer is a matte black Classic Skate helmet with a unique wrap-around print. It will be followed up with a psychedelic swirl pattern in a glossy gray finish, and is available in both the Classic and Full-Cut  in both the Skate and Snow lines, for release in October next year.

The snow helmet will be offered in the retro Full-Cut, the most recognizable skate helmet of all time, which will feature a high-impact ABS shell lined with EPS and outfitted with insulated plush lining for warmth and comfort. The line will also include the original Classic, which is now ASTM, CE and CPSC Certified for snow, skate and bike use, making it wearable year-round, on or off the slopes.

Retailing for $69.95 to $89.95, the helmets will be available in sizes XS - XL.


Volcom was founded in 1991 on the belief that there is a higher level of consciousness to be found within one’s self through the internal and external journeys that board-sports, music, art and film provide.  For over two decades Volcom has been TRUE TO THIS.


Founded in 1973, Pro-Tec is the original action sports protective gear brand, featuring the market’s most recognizable style of helmets. Today Pro-Tec delivers the very best in modern protective equipment with a broad range of impact technology options for a variety of action sports. Learn more at
