most helmet brands, pro-tec i know forsure, and probably giro and red,
have multi-impact absorbers, which is what it sounds like. supposedly,
regular helmets are single impact, and should be replaced because of the
"invisible damage" done after the first impact. these helmet brands
design their helmets so that the stuff inside bounces back and returns
to its normal shape after impact, so you can hit it multiple times.
