Helmet Question


Recommended Posts

When should you replace a helmet? I'm talking about one that's never been in a crash, never been dropped, damaged, etc.

I think that depends, generally I've heard helmet manufacturers say ~5yrs, give or take, claiming that the crash foam in the helmet (not the soft stuff in the fabric around your ears etc.) starts to break down and lose some of it's protective qualities. Check their websites, they may have something, plus, I'm sure others here with more knowledge than I will chime in shortly.
