My old one has been hanging in the garage since being relegated to spare.
I picked it up out of pity to festoon my bonce and realized the green stuff all over it wasn’t radioactive mud, but mold!
Def time for the bin.
It depends. I’m a tart when it comes to helmets and have six or seven on the go at any one time. A bit like tyres I find different conditions need different helmets.
The last one I actually threw away was a few years ago – a Giro Exodus that had gone from cupboard A to cupboard B to garage to shed to bin. A THE is currently in garage and a Bell is in the shed so I guess these will be the next ones to go.
i received my new Giro Hex yesterday….now i’m wondering the same about my old Giro Xen….
normally if i’ve bashed the helmet i’d send it back under the crash replacement warranty, but this one still looks like its in reasonably good nick although its quite a few years old….so i guess it’ll have to serve as an emergency backup…
I only ever have two helmets, one road and one MTB. Neither gets replaced til the old one is broken so it goes in the bin. IIRC road helmet is about 6 years old (and taped up), MTB is about 4 (haven’t had a big off in a while, must be getting old!)
