FWIW Charles, that helmet would never go on my head with that kind of damage. I have retired two helmets in 2 years with less damage than that visibly. Price tag on the two of them combined is well over 1000 dollars. The EPS inside was compressed from my head on both of them, with no shell breakage. One of the crashes was at 20 mph. It doesn't take much to kill the lid, but the lid keeps the crash from killing you or at the very least, allowing you to have a new career in napkin folding to look forward to.
