My name is Fran and my husband and son bought me the Crasche headband to protect me while I skate. I am an older skater- just started after I retired and I love it. I wear a helmet because I am not taking the risk of injuring myself in a fall. I did fall when I first skated and knocked myself out for 9 minutes. Scary stuff. I was toying with the idea of getting a halo but my husband didn’t think they were safe enough. He found your product instead.
I skated with the Crasche band during a showcase and fell. Of course I hit my head! But I want to tell you that the band did the job! When I have fallen with the helmet I usually end up with some whip lash and aching neck and shoulder muscles. This did not happen with the band. It absorbed the impact! I did have a small bruise because I some how managed to land on the corner where the band meets the higher back of the head protection. But a much easier recovery! I was able to skate the next show and the shows on the next day. I am very happy with the protection the band gave me.
I also want to know if you sell just the headband without the pads. I would like to be able to change colors without buying multiple bands.
