    thought vail was funny and we already posted about Whistler lift problems(many people enjoyed)

    had to post the great joke GF joke just changed it from golf clubs to cracked frame (many people enjoyed)

    I don't think the remedy is a safe helmet for full on DH matter what people say...compare it to the Azonic 708 and it is a toy (I will always preach safety and always wear armour)

    I want a smaller Michelin 32 A.T. .....I don't need the 2.8 anymore after losing a more then 40 pounds in 5 years of riding. 190 now

    all legit......plus it is winter(everybody is in snow)

    finally they should take post counts off....

    My friend swore by the Giro Remedy because he said it was one of the honey helmets that met frontal crash test ratings. Obviously not.

    I like my THE IZYK helmet. Saved my face once already, so I bought another just like it. Hopefully I'll never need to use it.

    SMT, didnt you rock a carbon Remedy back in the day and swear by it?

    I've been rocking a Remedy for 2 years. Its seen some BAD crashes. Should I replace it? Oh yes thats for sure. But its just to pretty.

    Giro Remedy's are pieces of sh*t!!!! That's why I ride nothing but moto helmets now. My troy lee took a huge hit last month and barely took any damage. I replaced it but im glad it was such a good hemlet.

    Ya definitely go with moto helmets. I have a remedy for now after crashing with my 661 and breaking my maxilla in two spots, breaking my nose, getting a concussion and getting 3 stitches in my top lip all from one bad jump at the DJ's.

    Got my first moto helmet today. Stoked on it. Got the TLD Air Lucha, kinda fugly but it'll keep my dome safe. Compared to my Carbon D2 it's quite a bit heavier, and bulkier, but I've had too many scares this last season, not to mention a few good friends going down hard in front of me.
    Leatte brace is next on the list. Seems the more experienced you get, the idea of better vital protection seems more and more appealing.

    A helmet isn't going to stop you from getting abrasions on your face. Especially if you face plant.If you have hit anything with your helmet. You should replace it. Ounce the material inside has been crushed you will get a concussion. Thats the point of the material inside. if you keep using it after crashing you can't really blame the helmet, can you?
    Looks like it did its job. He walked away from a decent wreck. Every helmet manufacturer recommends replacing the helmet after a crash. Dirt,street,bike, etc.
