If you were involved in an unfortunate riding accident, it is strongly advised that you replace your helmet before your next ride. Materials used in riding helmets is designed to withstand single impact. Once an impact has occurred, your helmet is considered compromised and may not protect you as thoroughly in a secondary accident. Please keep in mind that the impact does not have to happen while riding. Dropping a helmet onto concrete or hard flooring can also damage the internal structures, even if there is not obvious external damage.
