Featuring TSG's custom low and snug fit the Gravity Solid Color helmet fits to your head like a protective second skin. It’s a tough hardshell construction that curves anatomically correct around your head for a great fit and wearing comfort. The Gravity is shaped on all four sides of the helmet and fits without slipping or jiggling. It is the shape and fit role model for all TSG's winter sport helmets. And it's not only a great protection, the Gravity is a real eye-catcher. Thanks to the collab with Blue Tomato the design got an Blue Tomato inspired update.

Hardshell helmets have a durable ABS, PP or PC hard shell and a liner of softer expanded polystyrene (EPS), which has very good penetration resistance and energy distribution properties. Hardshell helmets are very strong and quite forgiving in handling as the outer shell isn’t delicate to minor knocks.
EPS features the constitutional properties of a cell. This lightweight impact foam combines high stability with great flexibility and thus offers good penetration resistance and energy distribution properties. EPS foam liners are the industry standard for action sports.
A helmet can only protect what it covers. The more it covers without blocking vision and action the better is the protection. TSG's Low Fit design sits as low as possible for superior front, back and side head protection but is anatomically designed that it doesn’t restrict your action. TSG helmets with Low Fit safely cover the delicate area around your temples and most important the atlas, the highest point of your spinal column.
TSG Snug Fit turns these helmets into the most comfortable and best fitting half-shelf helmets on the market. This has to do with their custom helmet form that is not just one of those regular bulky molds but is anatomically designed all-around your head. Most helmets come with side parts that run down straight from a bulky top, ignoring your head’s curved anatomy. The sides of their Snug Fit helmets curve around the temples a little more than usual, respecting your head shape, to optimize fit, protection and aesthetic. Additionally it shows great effects on the shape, as the helmet is less voluminous as common half-shell helmets.
The Tuned Fit System allows you to dial in your fit using different thickness comfort pads on the interior of the helmet. Your helmet comes with two sizes of comfort pads. Just pull the hook and loop-backed pads out and swap them for the thickness you need.

In 1988 Titus Dittmann saw the need for solid skateboard protection which would protect skaters from injury without limiting their movement. His determination and creative spirit helped him to create TSG. When Tony Hawk landed on his head during a loop attempt wearing a TSG helmet and walked out of it without a scratch, the brand took off. TSG work with several non-profit projects that provide humanitarian help for children using skateboarding or mountain biking as a medium.
