When I was packing for last week’s SoCal coaching adventure, I happened to look inside my helmet.
From a helmet’s perspective, insulating your brain from impacts is a destructive process.
Helmets are disposable. When you crash, check for damage. If you see any compression or cracks, replace the helmet. If it’s a big crash, you should probably replace the helmet. If the helmet is old, it might be past its expiration date.

YIKES! My wife won’t let me wear this again.
Thanks again to Jason Emmanuel for this Specialized Tactic helmet. It’s been my daily hat for two years, and it’s apparently saved me a few times.
Sending the Tactic to the Smithsonian. Starting fresh.
Do what I say, not what I did
Check your helmet after every crash. Don’t wait two years to randomly peak inside.
Inter cranial braaap!
Know more. Have more fun!
