Added reply in a thread How often to replace helmet? 11/27/2019 7:24 AM

If you truly had multiple bad slams (same spot?) you should replace. Most helmets are certified for 1 big hit. After that the effectiveness is limited and more of the g-forces will get through to your head.

Went from Longneck XLs to the Pulsars. I like em so much better out of the gate than the longnecks.

Usually there are stickers inside the helmet, you may just have to see if you can find the model online and see what you can find. I like the S1 because it is rated for multiple low impact hits as well as 1 big one!

It's great! You can get the DVD for free if you order stuff from Kink direct or you can do what I did and get the Blu-ray. It has ALL of Kink's full length videos as bonus features. Well worth the $40!!

If the helmet is certified and comfortable for you then it's good to go. My helmet is a S1-Lifer. I like it because it has a small form factor and is dual certified. Also comes with extra liners (one size up and one size down) to really dial in the fitment. ... more »

I can't deny that long fakies are fun. I can go way further than ever before, I just can't get the rollout or half cab to save my life.

I ordered on 8/27 and didn't receive it until 09/09. I needed specific hub guards and i threw in an extra tire. US site said they were in stock actually came from the UK.

The one time I ordered from Source USA, the items came from England anyway.... didnt pay as much, but they still shipped from overseas and took a while.

Exact same set up I had... which WTP bike is it? The crysis? They should come off fine. Just get good tire levers and watch some how-to videos.
