Happy International Helmet Awareness Day, EN! If you’ve been daydreaming about a new skull cap or something lightweight for the summer, today is the day to say yes to yourself. Don’t hesitate, bust out the plastic and do it! Remember, helmets generally have a five year life span, assuming no hard drops, falls or shocks. Once it’s been involved in a fall, it’s done it’s duty and must be replaced. Retailers all over the world are offering some pretty wicked discounts on helmets today, including our friends at Smartpak.  Check out the deals here!
