    Are there any form of difference in the absorption features for different helmets or irrespective of the helmet the absorption level remains equal and the same? I prefer to change my helmet every three year, and I make sure to archive the used ones for references. Thanks for facts you provided at the beginning of this post, it was quite catchy!

    Thanks

      Hi, Salim and thank you.

      First of all, it is an excellent tradition to change the helmet regularly as you do. I recommended to do it no later than every five years but do it each three years as you do great.

      About your question, very interesting view, I haven´t found that there are a difference in absorption feature between helmets but can´t decline it either. But having in mind that there is a definite quality stranded each helmet much have so I believe it should not be at least significant difference.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Great article. Here in Australia it is a legal requirement that all persons riding bikes on the road must wear a helmet.  This causes great debate on whether they are really necessary and the police cop a flogging on social media whenever they dare fine someone for riding without a helment on.  I live in a small beach community where the local kids never wear them and the local police tend to turn a blind eye.  We even had a case here recently where sadly, two local teenagers fell whilst riding down a large hill in skateboards.  One was wearing a helment and had a broken arm.  The other was not and ended up in an induced coma for 5 months – luckily he made a full recovery.

    Your posts should be put in every newspaper in the country.  Keep up the good work

    p.s. If nothing else, I can attest to the fact that helmets are a good defender against swoopi
