Designed, developed and tested over two years by some of the best downhill skaters in the world in pursuit of the perfect blend of aesthetics, aerodynamics, and safety.

Functionality and awareness continues to be the driving force behind our design process. A quality visor and large opening ensure top of the line visibility.

Mids Lids are hand made by skaters in the USA using only the highest quality materials available.

Batches of 4 helmets will be released every 1-2 weeks, with breaks in between allowing for the occasional skate trip. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on future batch releases.

Warning: Downhill skateboarding is inherently dangerous. No helmet can prevent all head injuries or death. For maximum protection, helmet must be fitted and adjusted properly to the wearer’s head.

  • Shell – Hand-laminated, multi-layered fiberglass and Kevlar shell with a carbon-reinforced chin.

Lighter weight carbon/Kevlar shell available upon special order.
  • Dual Density EPS Impact foam – Impact foam liner made of dual-density EPS, used to absorb impact in targeted areas.  The foam carries the following certifications**:
