.Hansel.do daap kids know what freeskiing is?
theabortionatorIt's awesome that kids are learning to ski with helmets these days. I hope that there isn't a widespread helmet law ever but would love to see like 75% or more of the people rocking them.
You don't even have to be doing anything spectacular to get hurt. Just hit one weird rut on a trail or get sent weird in some spring snow and get fucked.
I feel like if you start as a kid you're golden. Some people just can't get used to wearing it. If you've always ridden with one there's no reason to stop.
I would like to have a cool dream like this though
theabortionatorMost helmets have empty space where you can crack through in a fall and really soften the blow in addition to the foam.
Shit definitely helps. I've broken a helmet where I could have easily pulled it apart into 2 pieces it was so fucked. That wasn't even on a rail or tree or anything. Landing of a booter.
I'm always hoping for new advancements in helmet technology but that doesn't mean I'm not going to wear one because they aren't perfect now lol.
