Why a Quick Scan Could Be Crucial for Your Helmet’s Safety and Integrity

Ensure your helmet safety at!


Have you ever dropped your helmet from a short height and wondered if it’s still safe to use? Here’s what you need to know:


Yes, you should definitely consider having your helmet laser scanned for potential defects. Even though we’ve all been there and felt that sinking feeling when our helmet hits the ground, it’s important not to take chances with your safety.


Why should you get it scanned? It’s not about making money for us—it’s about your safety and peace of mind. Helmets are designed with a specific lifespan and are meant for one impact only. If a helmet is compromised, it can’t effectively protect your brain in another accident.


While a short drop may not always cause visible damage, it could still weaken the helmet’s structure. Our advanced laser scanning technology, which is 100,000 times more precise than the naked eye, can detect invisible defects that compromise your helmet’s integrity.
