Be Safe This Summer!
Did you know bicycle helmets should be replaced at least every five years? The five-year replacement is recommended by the Snell Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to head protection through scientific and medical research, standards development, and helmet testing. Glues, resins and other materials used in helmet production can affect liner materials. Hair oils, body fluids and cosmetics, as well as normal "wear and tear" all contribute to helmet degradation. Additionally, experience indicates there will be a noticeable improvement in the protective characteristic of helmets over a five-year period due to advances in materials, designs, production methods and the standards. Please check the inside of your helmet(s) for dates of manufacture, and click here and here for more information.
