Helmet Accident Replacement Policy
If you were involved in a riding accident, it is paramount that you replace your helmet. The materials used in riding helmets is specifically designed to withstand a single impact. Once an impact has occurred, the helmet is considered compromised and may not protect you in a secondary accident. Please keep in mind that the impact does not have to happen while riding. Dropping a helmet onto concrete or hard flooring can also damage the internal structures, even if there is not obvious external damage.
