    helmet prob. - crack?

    i have a giro havoc 2004. on the sides near my temples, there are two little holes that i presume have to do w/ the manufacturing process. on one side, a crack has formed going up the inside of the helmet. not too big, only about an inch.
    has anyone had this happen before w/ those holes?
    giro (bell) said to send it in for a free inspection, but i wanted to see if anyone has experienced this before.

    i have only hit my head one time (that i remember!) due to a wet az sidewalk on the way to s.mtn. oh yeah, hutchinson pythons turn to crap in the rain, even on pavement. i hit a puddle and the bike slid from underneath me...i smacked my head/shoulder on the hillside next to the sidewalk.
    it didn't do any noticeable damage at the time. that was about 6 mo. ago.

    thanks.

    Replace it.

    Get yourself a new helmet ASAP and send the Havoc in for inspection. If Giro replaces it, you're ahead (no pun intended) of the game, if not you're riding with a helmet you know is safe.

    Replace It !

    You should replace your helmet ASAP. You never know when you may need your helmet and if it's cracked or even dented it can not protect you properly.
