When to Replace Your Helmet

by Jim Bartlett September 29, 2016

Have you thought lately about replacing your bicycle helmet, ski helmet, or skateboard helmet?

Bicycle helmets have become so ubiquitous that it’s more of an unusual occurrence to see a cyclist without a helmet. Ski and snowboard helmets have also become increasingly accepted as a standard piece of equipment on the mountain. Most of us wear our bike helmet, ski / snowboard helmet, or skateboard helmet season after season and don’t think about helmet replacement unless it's visibly damaged (or we see a new one that we really want). But just like the rest of your equipment, bicycle helmets and ski helmets do age and lose effectiveness as they get older and suffer use/abuse. How do you know when it’s time to replace your helmet? Watch the two videos below to learn more about when to replace your old helmet...
