How long is it safe to wear the same helmet for?
The average life span for a helmet is three years. Helmets are made to absorb impact from crashing. The characteristics of the materials used were carefully selected for that purpose. Over time the characteristics will change and therefore the ability to protect.
A helmet will only be able to process the impact of a fairly hard crash once. It might crack or break. It won’t always be visible to the eye because the shell covers most of the material. You might still feel save wearing it, but the helmet has lost it’s primarily function by now.
When should I replace my helmet?
Immediately after a crash. Replacement from aging should be around every three years, but depends on various factors. Fading of the color, little scratches or showings of a detaching shield are indicating your helmet is getting old. The characteristics of the helmets materials have changed and it won’t function like it was produced to.
