Cyclewise Ducati-Vermont is running a helmet trade-in program
that gives riders a 10% discount on a new helmet.
Helmets deteriorate with time. The protective foam breaks down
with age and loses its effectiveness. The deterioration is not
visible. Manufacturers recommend replacing helmets after two to
A single impact can destroy a helmet, even if the exterior of
the helmet appears fine. The shock absorbing foam fractures on
impact, absorbing blows. The outer shell protects the foam. A
dropped helmet, or one that has been through a crash, can be
severely compromised and should be replaced.
Helmet technology continues to improve. Newer helmets offer
improvement in weight, air flow, sound management and safety.
