Helmets that do have all of this are not cheap.
If I buy a helmet for $1000+, I expect it to be able to handle being dropped, and to be okay for falls where my head has not been involved in the slightest.
That being said, I personally rarely venture outside the arena, and cannot remember the last time I jumped :p.
I've had my current helmet for about one and a half years, and i'm now looking at replacing it.
Wow. My helmet is approved, well ventilated and suitable for showing and it cost me £50. I hope you meant to put $100 not $1000 otherwise you are being seriously ripped off! Posted via Mobile Device
