Quote from: eboos on December 08, 2009, 01:47:05 PMWith all that goes on in a typical race weekend, compounded with having to do the race school to get your license, and all the expenses of the first race weekend (when you realize that you don't have everything that you will need), why would you want to wait til then to find out that you will need to buy a new helmet anyway. Like I said before, just get a second one, and if your first one passes, then you can use that as your spare.

It's not so black and white. The moment you say compromised, it doesn't go black. it's now a shade of gray. Maybe it's ok, maybe it's not. if it were cut and dried (black and white, however you want to say it) then NO ONE would do re-certification on helmets AND I MEAN NO ONE. The fact of the matter is that there IS re-certification out there, and that means there has to be some gray.the top coat is Polyurethane. Same stuff on your car. it flakes and lifts off pretty easily. the scraches are from a soft impact into rocky pavement. a few high points on the pavement chipped through the clear coat, and left the over penetration on the shell. VERY LITTLE OVER PENETRATION OCCURRED. the number of scratches also indicate, somewhat, the heft of the impact and duration on the pavement. not very many means not very long. also given that the only places that have clear coat lift are at the scratch sites indicates that the shell did not flex so there's no question the EPS was not a factor in protection. the only thing that got wear from protection was the shell, but wear only and not a deal breaker for me. if the CF was frayed or cut, it'd be a different story. i'm not as cavalier as ya'll make me out to be.zero concussions.HJC wont test because they DONT test. if they DID test, but WOULDN'T test, now that's a different story.I have a replacement on the way from an incredibly awesome friend. Now i have two perfectly crashible helmets
