Goldline Head First Protective Curling Toque
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 thing 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 CPA 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 stimulate a fall to the ice. Therefore, the impact test from the CSA hockey helmet standard was used to test the Head First line of product. The Head First headgear passed this impact test.
