My son needs a full face helmet for downhill riding, so he asked his grandfather for one for his birthday. My dad, instead of heading to a bike shop, went to Walmart and picked up a Bell Exodus helmet. I know there was a big recall of Exodus helmets, but I checked the serial number and this one is fine. I called Bell and found out it is CPSC and ASTM 1952 certified. The helmet is adjustable, and seems to fit my son on the largest setting (he has a big head). But I am still hesitant to let him use it. I would really appreciate any feedback on this helmet, or on buying helmets at discount stores rather than bike shops in general. Is there any reason to be concerned about letting my son ride in this helmet rather than one from a bike shop that would probably be at least twice as expensive?
