So I was getting ready to ride yesterday and as I was putting my helmet on (Giro Xen), I noticed that there's a nice long crack starting where the strap enters the back-left-side of the helmet and goes straight up under the padding all the way to the top of the lid.
Helmet is toast, barely got two seasons out of it. Didn't crash on my head, haven't dropped it that I can recall. Don't think I can get the crash replacement because I didn't actually crash, and I don't want to wait that long anyway so I'm just going to suck it up and pop for a new one. I have no idea how it happened.
Damn diddley-ding-dong crap. I really like this helmet, grey/black urban camo, subtle but stylee (IMHO). Now I have to make a special trip down to Denver to get a new one, and until then I'll be tooling around in my ghey-ass Atmos (roadie lid) that's too small and really not comfortable. Or my full-face, one or the other.
Just had to vent.
