Why should I change my helmet after a fall

The purpose of a riding helmet is to protect the rider's head in the event of a fall.
It is a kind of "bumper" whose job is to absorb the impact in place of the skull.

When an impact occurs, the polystyrene absorbs the energy and deforms to protect the head.

The consequences cannot always be seen with the naked eye, that's why it is essential to change your helmet after a fall. If not, as the polystyrene has already been deformed, it will not be able to serve its shock-absorbing purpose.
