Don't believe the hype... PIG HEAD NATURAL WHEELS are the go!

We have had a steady increase in sales with these this year, slowly more and more skaters are working it out.

Just a (Pig) heads up! We have re-stocked our best selling

PIG HEAD NATURAL WHEELS – ALL SIZES 50mm – 60mm!

Someone that has been skating forever was asking me the other day “does anyone still make proper wheels, just plain, fast normal wheels?”

Well PIG do! 

So if you are a bit over chattering, hard, chalky, loaded up with white pigment but with fantastic marketing nonsense wheels  too, PIG HEADS are for you.

Don’t just take my word for it. 


Here’s what one of the long term team riders has to say about it!

Like what Louie has to say? Need some?

Hit up your local shop and get em' on the program... if you are a shop, hit up Goliath & we'll sort you out!

THE KILLING FLOOR SKATEBOARDS - Now available in Australia!

We have a new brand joining the Goliath ranks this September!

The Killing Floor Skateboards, kicking it off with a small clean line of 6 decks.



Started in 2009, The Killing Floor is a company based out of the Pacific Northwest USA.

 
Heavily influenced by old blues, jazz, classic rock and the simpler times when skateboarding was purely an individual’s creative outlet and form of self expression, before modern media and pop culture sank its bloody fangs into it.

 
We believe that skateboarding is not a sport, it’s an art form. It can’t be owned or controlled by corporations, it’s bigger than that and were all a part of it.

Our goal with The Killing Floor is to hopefully help turn kids onto this mentality, so the next generation of skateboarders will embrace skateboarding with an open mind and continue to build it in the right direction.

Support your local, create your own scene, and do things your own way.

That's what skateboarding is to us.

  • Matt Barry
  • Lance Chapin
  • Mark Gutterman
  • Clement Oladipo
  • Taylor Kennedy
  • Miles Grube

BERN HELMETS - Brighton & Macon Models... To peak or not to peak, that is the question?

Did you know, all our  
BERN ASNZ 2008:2063 MODEL HELMETS – MACON & BRIGHTON 
 are available with or without a peak straight out of the box?


Aftermarket liner kits without without peaks are also available if you change your mind after the initial helmet purchase.

The choice is yours, it also allows for a custom helmet for any condition.

Another reason to consider BERN HELMETS. 
Not to mention the comfortable fit and awesome range of colours.

*BERN MACON & BRIGTON EPS LINER HELMETS ARE MADE TO ASNZ 2008:2063, CPSE & CE STANDARDS



TSG DAWN FULL CUT HELMET - The dawn of superior protection.

The TSG DAWN FULL CUT HELMET 
has been gathering momentum out there and for good reason.

It is the only FULL CUT helmet that offers the additional protection of a full EPS LINER.


 
We have had quite a few riders switch to this model after serious bingles where a regular cutaway helmet simply does not offer as much protection.

Even better, the additional protection won’t cost you a cent extra! 

The TSG DAWN the same price as our EVOLUTION HELMET.

Available in FLAT BLACK sizes S/M & L/XL

*This helmet is made to CPSE & CE standards

TSG PASS DOWNHILL RACING HELMET - AUSTRALIAN RELEASE ALERT

What's this? No it's not a promotion for the new Daft Punk single, it's the new  
TSG PASS DOWNHILL HELMET 
set for release in Australia in April 2014

 

The long awaited downhill helmet by TSG, in collaboration with three times World Champion Martin Siegrist, has finally been announced to hit the shelves in March or April of this year.

Design

The extremely compact and aerodynamic design has been developed specifically with daredevil speed runs of asphalt surfers in mind and is optimally adapted to the anatomy of the head. The front part of the PASS Helmet is much shorter compared to other helmets. That not only looks better design-wise, but also makes for increased protection due to a larger chin guard.

View

The large window with single-handed-use visor makes for optimised peripheral vision, even in the tightest of steep turns. The spherical lens geometry supports distortion-free vision all the way to the periphery. The inside of the visor comes with anti-fog coating, and the outer side with anti-scratch treatment to protect the shield from light wear and tear.
The view window has a sealing so that the visor is completely sealed when closed, and no airflow comes in. Each helmet comes with two visors: mirrored tinted and clear, which can be used in various light conditions. Switching visors can be done easily and without tools.

Ventilation

Two small vent ports in the nose area allow air exchange. In addition, the exhalation-fogging blocker positioned around the nose ensures that exhaled air doesn’t flow upwards, fogging up the visor. The fogging blocker is made of soft foam and is supplied in two sizes for optimum adaptation to different facial geometries. Two more small openings at ear level improve the wearer’s perception of ambient noise.
The PASS helmet is available in four different sizes, thus covering head sizes with a circumference from 54 cm to 61 cm.

Certificates

The TSG PASS helmet meets the requirements of the European EN 1078 standards for skate and bike helmets. In addition, it was tested on the American ASTM F1952 standard for Downhill Helmets. The visors have also been tested and meet the European safety requirements for personal eye protection (EN 174).




 *TSG PASS is not ASNZ 2063:2008 and is not suitable as a road bicycle helmet. For closed road downhill skateboarding use only.

SELFIES ... SOOOO HOT RIGHT NOW?
