Although your helmet is solidly constructed, it should be handled with care and should be replaced in the event of either dropping the helmet onto a hard surface or rough handling. Such abuse may damage the painted surface finish or decrease its ability to protect.
IMPACT: Do not wear the helmet after an impact for any reason, even if there is no visible damage showing on the helmet, damage may have been caused to the internal structure of the helmet and it’s ability to absorb further energy may have been compromised. REPLACE IMMEDIATELY.
The internal layers of EPS are critical to the energy absorption performance of the helmet and any damage which could compress this material will reduce the ability to absorb the impact energy and thus transmit more energy to the rider’s head and critical organs.
