Loose Straps Can Still Make a Difference May 01 2015, 0 Comments
After writing attachment instructions for Wind-Blox, viewing countless (L O N G) videos about correct helmet placement and hosting a bike rodeo for children, I've become bit of a strap-loving helmet correcting person. "A bit" may be too mild. I've felt the urge to let riders know that should they crash their helmets would do them no good--would likely fall clean off.
All this has changed.
Yesterday Ride UK BMX posted this video which shows a woman riding with her helmet attached terribly---and yet it remains effective. Please watch. Rest assured, if this were to happen to you, you'd be just fine with a crazy-loose helmet strap.
Were this not to happen to you and you wanted your helmet to be effective....welp
