Ice skating helmets are just as important as any other
It is quite a wide assumption that ice-skating done at a rink is with recreational purpose and therefore, it doesn't require any protection. In fact, ice skating helmets, just like other winter helmets, skateboard ones or bike, are one of the must-have pieces of protective gear.
Don't forget, that even though ice skating is done in a closed space, it has just as many risks. Ice is quite of a hard surface to take with your head so a helmet will save you a lot of trouble.
Can you use another winter helmet?
Yes, you can. A ski helmet, or skateboard and hockey helmets, are made to withstand several impacts. So you can easily go ice-skating with one of those if you already got one. Just remember to check your helmet for any damages or cracks, and if there are any, replace it with a new one.
Other safety precautions
Apart from a nicely fitting helmet, make sure to check the specific rules and safety instructions at the rink you are ice skating. Remember to respect and be careful with the others around you too. The best way to enjoy an ice skating day is to get home without any injuries.
