Find out how to inspect and care for your bike helmet.
When Bike Radar was putting together a story about bike helmets – spotting the signs of a worn out helmet and how to care for your bike helmet to get the most from your investment, they reached out to Vista Outdoor’s own Rob Wesson, Senior Director, Research and Development at Giro.
Rob recommends replacing your helmet after three years of use, or sooner in the event of a hard crash. He explains, “If you crash hard enough so that either you received a concussion or you experienced a sub-concussive impact — your head hurts, you need to stop the activity or you’re looking for Advil — then you should replace the helmet. Period.”
