Helmet that served its purpose

So, took a good look at my helmet to assess the damage done to it following my crash.  Quite amazed to find where the cracks have appeared. At the very least, I’m pleased that it has done exactly what it was meant to do – protect my noggin in a crash.

Here are some pics of my helmet with the crash impact points and cracks in the frame.

Well, it’s served me well. Now to get it all packaged up and ready to send back to Giro. No need to throw it away. Am sure they can in some way benefit from receiving it.

    Give the Giro importers a call and explain what happened – they have a carash replacement policy, so you can get a new lid at cost. The old one gets sent off for testing, so they can make better helmets. I’ve used it twice over the years, one reason why I keep buying Giro.

    @Ben – thanks for info Ben. Will definitely look them up and give them a call. And if it makes things easier on the pocket – all the better 🙂
