Glad to hear you're (mostly) ok. Get well quickly.

Not sure if TLD offers this, but Bontrager has a 1 year crash replacement guarantee. I'd say it's worth contacting TLD.

And yes, that's why we wear helmets! It's also why I'm always rather cautious on my bike.

Wow, unlucky that you crashed, lucky your helmet took the brunt of it. Considering what could have happened, I'd say that helmet's a pretty cheap insurance policy, regardless of whether they will replace it.

I would definitely contact the company. My buddy had a bad crash and split his Scott helmet, saving his brain. He sent a picture of the helmet to Scott with a note thanking them for saving his brain and they sent him a new helmet for free.

Troy Lee is giving me a 30% discount on any regular priced helmet for the crash replacement - pretty sweet!

thanks to everyone for the suggestion to contact them
