Not BOHICA... I used to get paid for that too, gave it up for 1/3 the pay and a lot more quality (read as not shell shocked) time with my kid.  :152:

I'm still using helmets way into +5 years...an off road SyncroTec Shoei that's 10+ years old.
What's the big deal.?

The polystyrene layer that absorbs shock gets harder with age, losing it's shock absorbing properties basically becoming a big heavy skit lid. Then there are those advances in technology... how much safer is a helmet built today vs. 10+ years ago?

From Snell:
Why should you replace your helmet every five years?
    The five year replacement recommendation is based on a consensus by both the helmet manufacturers and the Snell Foundation. Glues, resins and other materials used in helmet production over time can affect liner materials. Hair oils, body fluids and cosmetics, as well as normal "wear and tear" all contribute to helmet degradation. Petroleum based products present in cleaners, paints, fuels and other commonly encountered materials may also degrade materials used in many helmets possibly degrading performance. Additionally, experience indicates there will be a noticeable improvement in the protective characteristic of helmets over a five year period due to advances in materials, designs, production methods and the standards. Thus, the recommendation for five year helmet replacement is a judgment call stemming from a prudent safety philosophy.
