It’s funny that in last week’s crash, I was immediately aware of the broken collarbone and the copius amounts of road rash that I had sustained. The interesting thing is, that until I was in the ER and the doctor looked at my head, I didn’t even realize that I had a pretty significant scrape and hefty little lump on the right side of my head just above and behind the eye socket.
Later as I looked at my helmet, it dawned on me that had I not been wearing it, the outcome of the incident could have been much different. And for that I want to thank Bell Helmets.
After a few years and several thousand miles, the foam pads on the inside began to fall out. Pretty sure the amount of sweat I produce had something to do with this and seeing as even trying to glue them in with a hot melt glue gun failed to hold, I decided to replace it. It just so happens I also had gotten a new bike and wanted a helmet to match the color scheme I had going.....
As I sit here and type this, looking at the photos of my helmet post-crash, it dawns on me just how thankful I am to Bell Sports for the Alchera Helmet. It's a product that not only fits my head well, but offers a secure and easy to adjust retention system, great venting to keep my head cool and is available at a price that won't break the bank. Add to all tha, the fact that I can still eat solid food and remember my name after putting it to the test and Bell has a customer for life.
Thank you Bell Sports!
