- New helmet, or be reet?
Is it me, or would anyone else expect that paying that much you might get some kind of discounted crash replacement? As far as I can tel this is not the same everywhere (in the USA the distributor does do a crash replacement for POC) I would have thought this encourages/incentivises people to ride with a safe and undamaged helmet rather than thinking “I paid £150 for this and I will ride in it till it falls to bits.) For this reason (and that they fitted my swede nicely) the last few I have bought over the years have been Giro (and it is madison who do the replacing/dicounting not Giro btw). Apparently if I crash/damage/break my Athlon I can get a new one for half price. http://www.giro.co.uk/crash-replacement.phpPosted 4 years ago_tom_Member
chuckle all you want but if I’d just shelled out that much for a helmet I don’t think I’d be so quick to replace it. Mind you, my helmet has gaffer tape holding the visor up and and is covered in scratches and gouges. But then I’ve had it for years and it still seems ok for the small impacts my head takes if I fall off..Posted 4 years ago
