Default WTB snowboard helmet! Verry lightly used or new!

I am looking for a new or VERY lightly used helmet. I would like a smith maze or holt, but am interested in others also. Size L or XL 58-61 / 60-62 (depending on manufacturer)
Let me know what you got and how much you want.

I have an XL Maze but frankly you're doing yourself a disservice trying to buy a used helmet. I couldn't in good conscience sell it to you, even though I think it has not taken any major blows yet.

Fact is you have no idea what someone else has put their helmet through, and a helmet that has had even one major impact is basically decoration for your skull.

Don't compromise on your brain, dude. Buy a new one, or surf for closeout prices online. I'm sure there are some out there still.

Thanks! I would have probably made a mistake then! I am sorta new to snowboard helmets and wouldn't have known otherwise. I do enjoy the use of my brain!
Thanks again! That could have been bad!

no worries man! You can get away with used *everything else* but don't skimp on the helmet

There are some helmets that use a softer foam that is supposed to be more resistant to multiple impacts but as far as I know the Maze & Holt (or any helmet made by Smith) don't use that material yet.
