I currently have 2 Shoei RF1000's and a Shark Evoline 2 in the rotation
I think it usually pretty easy to identify the helmets that are worn out. Used... not for me thanks.

Not to mention the foam padding wears out, the thing gets louder, looser.


FFS, it's a helmet. They're not suggesting you go buy a new bike every 5 years. \

I had two hockey helmet (new style with polystyrene type foam) go to shit in 2 and 2 1/2 years. That's only 220 games or so.
