Im not familiar with this, but has anyone ever warrantied a helmet? Ive got an RED trace and today i caught an edge and thought nothin of it. Hit my head but i didnt think it was that hard, just a little dizzy and shit. But on the lift up i realize that ive got a huge ass crack right down the middle back of the helmet, so apparently i smoked my head hard enough. Honestly tho i really do not think the impact was anywhere near hard enough to crack a helmet. I doubt u can warranty things like this but im wondering if anyone has ever been able to
Most of the foam helmets are actually designed to be good for one or two hard impacts before being useless. They're kinda like bike helmets in that way. I'm not familiar with that type of helmet, but its probably shot.... you can try asking RED about it, they'll have a better answer I'm sure.
crack from impact? no way they will warantee it... almost all helmets are one hit impact(as mentioned above) so they will basically said congrats the helmet did exactly what it is supposed to, saved your head... now buy a new one... they will warantee a helmet for other things, like pulled out rivets etc. but not for something that was caused by impact even if it shouldn't have been as severe damage
that's weird cuz my trace has taken many hard hits and it still is perfectly fine, im guessing your helmet may have had a defect from what you said, but im sure RED wouldn't consider it a defect, maybe take pics and send them to RED and describe the weakness of the hit it took, also post the pics here i'm interested to see what it looks like
cost price..hmm. I think id prolly just buy another trace on sale from some shops i know. I'll get a picture up later. It pretty much cracked in the middle at the very bottom of the back of the helmet up to the corner of the left vent thing. Then it cracked a bit up from that vent. Its not just the shell, but the foam too. I think that this may be one of the wearker areas on the helmet tho
