I am returning to riding after a 5+ year hiatus. Do helmets have a shelf life? I haven't used mine since I stopped riding, and while I would love to not spend money on a new helmet, I do not want to compromise my safety. I know some products degrade over time. Any thoughts?
If it does turn out that I need a new one, any suggestions for one that won't make my head look huge? My troxel looks like I have half a planet stuck on my head. Granted, I have a large head, but still! I never see anyone else looks as ridiculous in a helmet as I do.
