As a side note, stay FAR away from smith helmets. Two concussions and two broken helmets in the past few years.
I have a Poc Receptor bug and it is easily my favorite piece of gear I have ever bought and was the only helmet I could find to fit my head. It isn't really too light but it has taken some solid bumps and not taken any damage or hurt me in the slightest.

This would be the case if they were serious falls, however, these should not have caused the shells to crack apart.. Frail materials, the helmets barely even reduced the impact too.
