Re: This ride meeting: 
Convict 100 2012

Got my helmet back... Going to be needing a new one after my stack at the Convict. Ive already ordered a 2012 version, as the 2011 one worked pretty well in my opinion - after all, i am typing this...
The top is dented and all the damage is to the left temple area!

If you can see on the close up, the cracks going through the foam - spread the impact load very well IMO.

Here's to stringent safety standards. I'd hate to say it but without that life saver you wouldn't be sharing your story with us (at least this soon anyway).

Here's to a Helmet upgrade me thinks Eye-wink

The helmet started life as a MET Kaos before become an arty fruitbowl.
@phil - there are cracks through a fair bit - the outer casing is holding it all together.
I looked at it last night and thought myself extremely lucky only to have come out with a black eye and lots of bruising (all the way to my chin!)
I can still see straight, think straight and eat...
And yes! the lttle light at the back still works!!
