Your safety always comes first, and being proactive about identifying when to replace your helmet is crucial. At The Helmet Doctors, we emphasize prevention over cure – it’s better to be safe than sorry.


Before donning your helmet, give it a thorough inspection. Look for scuff marks, chips, scratches, or anything that seems out of the ordinary. Much like checking for changes in moles, these signs can indicate potential issues that need attention.


Equipped with cutting-edge laser scanning technology, The Helmet Doctors can pinpoint subtle defects and signs of wear that may compromise your helmet’s effectiveness. Some scratches or chips might be harmless, but others could conceal deeper structural problems. Also, inspect for loose padding, a compromised chin strap, or damage to the internal EPS foam – all indicators that it’s time for a replacement.


When it comes to safety, The Helmet Doctors lead the way with our advanced laser scanning technology. We can detect defects with precision, up to 100,000 times better than the naked eye. This capability ensures we uncover even the invisible defects that could compromise your helmet’s integrity.


By having your helmet laser scanned at The Helmet Doctors and confirming it’s defect-free, you’ll gain peace of mind knowing it still meets high safety standards and can provide optimal protection.
