Head First™

Falls happen to even the most seasoned curlers, but don’t worry, Goldline’s exclusive Head First protective headgear is specifically designed to reduce injury, while incorporating popular styles.

The protective component is made of the same strong material as bicycle helmets - expanded polystyrene (EPS).

The EPS is sandwiched between a thin polycarbonate outer shell and an inner layer of foam - in the event of a fall, deceleration is managed as the EPS is crushed.

Head First and CSA Approval?

There is currently no test standard specific to headgear that protects only in the event of a fall onto the back of the head. Biokinetics an Ottawa-based testing company, suggested that the impact test from the CSA hockey helmet standard was the closest relevant test to simulate a fall to the ice. Therefore the impact test from the CSA ice hockey helmet standard was used to test the Head First line of products. The Head First headgear passed this impact test.

Great

So fashionable on the ice nice to have the added protection

Great Cap!

Comfy and great looking hat that makes me feel much more confident on the slippery ice.

Questionable Fit

|

Construction is good but the fit is only ok. The Sm/Med fit is good but the Lg/XL is not. Bought both sizes and only the smaller fit is good. The larger size has the pad at the back of the head fit far to low unless you wish to have a huge puff on top of your head. Tried on my square head & had a fellow curler try on his round head and it did not fit either of us well and the small wasn't going on our heads.
