well you should join a fashion show then....seriously get a helmet if you got a concussion, i wear one who gives a shit how they look, you will have the last laugh when the guy next to you bleeding is bleeding from the head and you arnt cuz you were wearing a helmet.
i got 2 concussions last year, and one knockked me out for 5 minutes. funny part is i was wearing a helmet. sometimes a helmet doesn matter if you slam your head after comin down from 20+ yards in the air. so we are all takin severe risks doin what we do, but do anything to make it safer. plus helmets are a big style factor i think.
if your just like skiing its not that bad, but in the park you should deff have one, i got a real bad concussion at momentum last summer, and you feel like such shit for l ike a week after, it like hurts just to look into a light, orhear a loud noise, and that was with a helmet on. and look at whats happening 2 people, like cr. just invest in one that looks good, and there not that bad
I wear one. I figure why not? I mean, it isn't that big of a hassle to wear one, and a good friend of mine skidded out on ice and hit her head on a tree. She was in a coma for 2 months, and had to relearn everything from walking to talking to eating. So, as I said before, I figure I might as well wear one. And I have a k2, it is super light, probably one of the lightest helmets I have worn, I like it.
one of the claims against that is that it give you a false sense of confidence, and you push yourself to where you are greatly increasing your chances of getting hurt
take climbing for example. You are always told to wwear a helmet because of falling rock and debrism and they are safer. But if you flip through any climbing magazine you will see pics of people climbing 5.13 multi-pitch routes not wearing them, why because they dont look good in pictures, they are not appealing. its the same with skiing, sure they are safer, but they dont look so steezy and cool in pictures
