Please remember also that helmets don't last forever.

They are only good for 1 impact or 3 years (some folks say 5 but my head is worth more to me than saving a couple of bucks) whichever comes first.

The foam liner that protects your head breaksdown over time due to sweat and UV rays.

Keep safe everyone.

Good reminder. I think I'm due for a new helmet this year.
