|jello24||It's nice to know you were able to ride away from that high of an impact. I've had a couple of bell ringers where my the back of my head impacted ice yet showed nary a scratch on my helmet...|

Dude!!! If that were me 'n MY noodle,.. I'd run out & buy 2-3 of those brain buckets so I'd have 'em should they ever stop making them!!!!!
The helmet was done the second you took that kind of hit!! Crack ain't got shit to do with anything,.. (...except that maybe you're doin' "It"!!!)

Whether the shell visibly cracks or not, a helmet should be replaced after a big fall & impact like that.

|racer357||Agreed with the above post, The helmet appears to have been fiberglass lid. Fiberglass is supposed to crack to disperse the impact around your head instead of a concentrated blow.|
