You have no idea what that helmet's been through, nor do you know how old it is. I'd never take a chance on a used helmet.

There are approved helmets out there that are less than $50.00 new, so there's no reason to cheap out and buy a used one.

If you think saving money is more important than your brain, your priorities are skewed. Badly.

You gave eBay as your example. I guess I should have responded with something similar to what Speedracer said.

Helmets are like underwear, do not buy them used-anywhere! Period!

Is that more clear?

And I am not saying you have to buy a $300 helmet. I am just saying Helmets, like underwear, are something I would not buy on eBay.
Agree! You never know how many times that eBay used helmet hit the ground!

BTW, some troxel helmets are just $30 and they are very nice (if they fit, of course).

You are right Kitten_Val, that is what Mr. AB rides in. It fits him like a dream and it works great for him. Nothing says a good helmet has to cost a lot.
