2nd Skull


2nd Skull was founded in the USA by Federico Olivares, whose mission is to inspire athletes to play with confidence by adding protection to the most important part of the body (their head).

“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.


2nd Skull® products are scientifically engineered to reduce impact. Every 2nd Skull® comes with a thin layer of lightweight XRD®, an extreme impact protection material made from special urethane molecules that are soft and flexible at rest but can momentarily harden under sudden pressure.

The core component material XRD® remains soft and flexible at rest but can momentarily harden under sudden pressure or impact to absorb energy, keeping 2nd Skull® products form fitting to your head’s unique shape without compromising comfort and agility.

2nd Skull® products are designed with Microban® antimicrobial protection to defend against odors and stains.
