It's totally your choice whether you want to or not but I highly recommend it in the park with rails, boxes, bailing hard on jumps, etc. it really saves you!

I can't count how many times I'm hiking a rail or waiting to drop and a guy with a helmet falls really bad and smacks his head on the back of the rail and all I'm thinking is "if that dude didn't have a helmet..." I've had my own firsthand experiences too but just my two cents.

Outside the park there's plenty of hazards out there so again it's recommended but I usually don't wear a helmet outside of the park but I'm taking my own risk.
