Default Why you should always wear a helmet...Cranked at Jack Frost

I have been a loyal customer of Smith's since 2010. I have 2 pairs of I/O's and a pair of I/OX's, as well as a Maze helmet and Five pairs of sunglasses. I am also about to purchase a pair of prescription eyeglasses. Their products are awesome.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you guys about how my Maze helmet saved myself from serious injury. I have had the same helmet since the 2010/11 season, and it has helped me in little dings here and there, but nothing serious, until Saturday.

While riding at Jack Frost in Pennsylvania, I jumped a burm going full speed on my snowboard, and immediately upon landing, I did a full speed heelside butter to switch. Well, I guess I over compensated on the butter and caught my heel edge, and went flying fullspeed onto the back of my head. I also tweaked my ankle and cranked my chest and back muscles. Went and got checked out from ski patrol and they said that I looked fine from a concussion. I am sure that if I had not been wearing a helmet, I wouldn't have walked away from that crash.

Thank you Smith for making a great product and for saving my life.

I hope this doesn't mean the end of my season though. My ankle has gotten a lot better since Saturday. I could barely put any weight on it after I took my boots off.

In before all the naysayers and politics come in: Good show!

I've got some good dings in my old helmet, so at the very least I saved myself from a good headache or two, and kept my head warmer and more comfortable in the process.
