Broken Helmet Or Cracked Skull

Broken helmet or cracked skull! Today I’m featuring a video from one of my favorite YouTube personalities, BikeBlogger.

About a month or two ago, Bikeblogger fell off his bicycle, and hit his head on the ground. Luckily, Bikeblogger was wearing a helmet. His helmet was obviously damaged, because it has scratches and a hard to see crack in it.

When BikeBlogger presses on the side of his helmet, he can see the foam move.

There was a time when I wouldn’t wear a bicycle helmet. I didn’t think I needed one because I never crashed. And I definitely didn’t think that they looked cool.

Fortunately I smartened up and started wearing a bicycle helmet.

Do you choose a broken helmet or a cracked skull?

According to Pedal Powered Movement, there’s many reasons why you want to wear a helmet. I’m going to briefly go over a few reasons why you want to wear a one. But, if you want to read in more detail, you can click here.

Even though Statistics show that the overall number of bicycle accidents in the country is declining, the number of fatal bike accidents is on the rise.

Maybe this is due to the fact that there’s more bicycles on the road than ever before, therefore the number of fatal accidents are increasing.

Here’s a few reasons why the number of fatal bicycle accidents might be happening.

  • New bicyclists are less familiar with safe biking practices.
  • Drivers are not using caution when sharing the road with bicyclists.
  • Cities are planning, but have not implemented changes to infrastructure to support bicyclist safety.

Either way it’s important to wear a helmet lined with 360 degrees of High-Impact absorbing EPS foam.

My Triple Eight Sweatsaver Helmet is Dual Certified to CPSC Bike and ASTM Skate safety standards. Therefore, it’s a helmet that I recommend highly.

Also remember that no matter how good your helmet is, if you ever crash with it, replace it even if it shows no visible damage.
