I've opted to not reply for a while. But, it's Friday night and what the heck.
The silly little helmets sold for riding seem useless. There I said it. A good helmet should protect the face and skull all of it. The brain and airways being pretty important and all.
I personably, have been in a lot of serious high momentum car crashes. All in full face dot/ snell approved helmets. And here I am being that thorn in your side. I lived because of the safety gear. Yes. But it was safe. A skull cap of styrofoam and plastic is useless 99% of the time. I personally don't tend to fall on top of my head. And I crash/ fall a lot.
Though if you we're to ride in a full face, crash tested, with a neck brace... I could see where a helmet would save ya. I totally agree safely is important, I think safety should be practiced. A skull cap isn't the answer. I'll shut up now and feel free to ignore this post.
