My oldest son cracked his brand new Fox V3R helmet at TTC this past weekend. This was his Christmas present and he is bummed. Luckily it took care of his noggin like it was supposed to do! The crack is about an inch and a half long and located on the back upper area of the helmet. It seems to only be in the outermost layer - but it is a crack. You can push down around it and it separates at the edges. So my questions are these: When does a helmet need to be tossed? (this would be an expensive toss! ) If this helmet gets cracked so easily and my son is so good at wrecking - what might be a different helmet for us to look at? Thanks!
