In the description I read of the hardhat versions it says that this helmet needs to be replaced after any impact hard or soft. So even after the smallest fall hitting my head this helmet is meaningless and need to purchase another one?

Hey Spencer,

Technically that is true. EPS foam is a single impact foam which means it should be replaced after any hit to your head. The foam is designed to break and disperse the energy around, thus saving your melon. Some helmets out there are considered "multiple impact" helmets and are great for park days when you might just be hitting boxes and rails at relatively low speeds. Perhaps you'll want to look into those.
