Why would you buy a crashed and damaged helmet? Some people use them for testing or as props for everything from Halloween costumes to TV and movie productions. Others have successfully used crashed and damaged helmets to get replacements from shops, distributors, or manufacturers at discounted crash replacement pricing. Whatever you do, don't use it as a regular helmet and expect the same level of protection as new; they are only good for one crash. The reason for this is that the EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) foam that modern bicycle helmets are made from absorbs impacts by allowing the walls of the foam cells within the foam to crush, slowing the head down and spreading the impact over a greater area. Once the EPS foam has crushed, the helmet is no longer able to absorb more impacts. This is the reason why we need to replace our helmet after we crash, and it is also the reason why we recommend EPS foam helmets.
