Re: Best helmet deal I have found.........
I had this disucssion over a bicycle helmet that was "onsale" last week. The guy thought I was nuts.
To answer the question above, by RNB, the reason they're considered no good" after 5 years has to do with the resins breaking down. Sitting in a wharehouse in the box is better than hanging off the bike in the direct sun in a parking lot, but it doesn't matter to race orgs.
The helmet is dead after 5 years. No discussion.
The AFM would probably cut the strap for you if they caught you with it.
