|Helmets are the most worthwhile safety investment you can make.
But they don’t last forever. Here’s why:
Crashes: Helmets are constructed of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam. EPS absorbs forces by compressing, absorbing impacts that could cause a serious head injury. This is a one-time capability; EPS doesn’t re-form after compressing, so it
cannot effectively manage additional impacts. Replace any crashed helmet immediately, even if it LOOKS okay.
Environmental concerns: Over time,
|the forces of nature and everyday wear and tear can affect a helmet’s ability to absorb impacts, meaning that while it still offers some protection, it’s not as good as a new helmet. For this reason, helmet manufacturers and the Snell Memorial Foundation (the leading independent helmet certification authority) recommend replacing even un-damaged helmets every five years.|
Safety, style and weight: Helmets today are lighter, more comfortable and safer than your old lid. Come in today; you’ll be impressed by how good a new helmet feels.
