I wear a helmet everytime because i want to and i need to. someone said "is $130 really worth it?" my take on that is i'd rather pay that much rather than pay thousands of dollars of hospital bills if you get injured

Hey! You're not the one, who don't like to wear helmet. But helmets are not for making the style statement, it is used to protect head in case of fall or mishap.....So it is better to be safe. I will personally recommend you to wear helmet in any condition.....

I tried to wear one one year and I hated it. I wear one of those neck toques and the helmet straps always got in the way. My ears were always cold. And lest importantly I looked and felt like a tool.

But once I start shredding with my daughter I will wear one ONLY when she's there.

I wear a helmet, its a POC recepter bug. I was riding in between 2 runs at White Pass following a skiers tracks. I guess I'm not as agile as he was, and while trying to squeeze between a group of 3 trees I caught my head on one. Gave me a gnarly black eye and a mild concussion even though I was wearing a helmet. Stay safe out there everyone!

Waxed it off a box yesterday on the last run. Went upside down on my head and landed all kinds of fucked up. Got a mild concussion, neck stinger and a black left eye. Wife is buying me a helmet today. Now I am at work and can barely move my neck and mah head hurts like the dickens.
