Questions & Reviews

Question from Brian Sweeney
Anyone know if this helmet is rated for multiple impacts?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Brian. Almost all helmets (outside of hockey, football, and the like) should be retired after one violent impact. It depends on the specific helmet but "violent impact" can mean anything from cracking the shell/foam after a sizeable crash to dropping it on to a tile floor. Every time my head hits the ground hard enough to force me to take a moment to recollect my wits (and gear, yardsales happen all too often) I retire my helmet with no hesitation. Crashing in a helmet that has exceeded its usable lifespan can have some nasty consequences. Helmets are cheap, head injuries aren't.

Question from Roger P
Do the earpads on the Uvex p.8000 accommodate Outdoor Tech speaker chips?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Roger, I just took a look at the helmet. The ear pads are sewn shut all the way around but based on the size of the earpads it looks like they could accommodate the Outdoor Tech pucks if you got creative with a seam ripper. That being said, you'd likely void all kinds of warranties on the ear pads if you started modifying it like that.
