Helmets look tough and durable, but they do have to be handled with care and they do need to be relaced periodically.
Here are some tips...
If a helmet has not been damaged, it needs to be replaced every 3 - 5 years depending on how much it has been used. Over time, UV rays, adhesive and component aging will damage a helmet and its protective qualities may deteriorate with time & wear making it a safety risk.
If a helmet has been dropped or suffered an impact, it needs to be replaced right away. Remember, a helmet is only designed for one impact - even a small one. An impact may fracture the outer shell or compress the impact absorbing liner even though the damage may not be visible.
Never use, expose or store helmets around insect repellent, gasoline, cleaning fluids, exhaust fumes or excessive heat. These factors can result in the degradation of the helmet materials and protective components though the damage may not be visible.
