Our Story

“You can’t protect your kids from everything, but you can give them a 2nd Skull™”

“It all started on a summer day in 2010. My kids were riding bikes and electric four wheelers. All of a sudden, I saw my son fall down and hit his head hard on the concrete. While he had his bicycle helmet on, I realized that in a split second our lives could change. I felt helpless and knew at that moment that I had to do something about this, for me and for other parents. If there was one product that could add protection to any sport helmet, what would it look like?”

This event sparked the idea which led to the journey and the birth of 2nd Skull.
