Is my helmet suitable for other sports?

Each helmet is certified and approved for a particular sport, and complies with the EU-wide standard, because every sport involves very individual risks.
For example, a bicycle helmet is robust and safe and protects in a crash but as a ski helmet this is inappropriate. Here is the lack of penetration protection the problem, ie the protection against penetration of sharp objects. Thus, a helmet worn in a ski accident would possibly have the heaviest head injuries to the helmet wearer result.

Even with proper storage, you should replace your helmet after several years of use, even if no damage to the helmet can be seen.
