    Helmet

    How long should you keep a helmet. I heard from my LBS that you should turnover your helmet every 5 years. Or keep it until you have an accident.

    3 to 5 years or until you smack it against a rock. The foam degrades over time and especially when exposed to UV radiation. Best to play it safe!
