For racing though, right? I would think for us 'normies' the shelf life would be like expiration dates on water

Is your head less important on the street?

Well the way I have understood it is that it's for tech inspection, which I didn't/don't fully understand not because they stop working on or begin failing on said date

I'm not being condescending just genuinely curious as to why it would be bad to get one that's been in a box for several years

I was told the lid doesn't go bad if it wasn't worn or put in sun light, heard te suns uv rays are what break down the helmet. Like I said this is what I was told so it might not old water.

Being out in the sun, worn or mishandled will only accelerate it's lifespan

At the prices for the NOS closeout, one can afford to have a helmet life of just 2-3 years. Which is much longer than my Arai has left in it.

prolly less shelf life on the street if you ride constantly.

the oils in your hair or scalp (for us baldies) break down the styrofoam, dropping it here and there can't be good for the shell, just natural deteroiration of the styrofoam.....

i replace my street helmet ever 5 yrs......and i wear arai's.

i would agree w/ most of that.......but the stryofoam does break down. so it won't last forever if you keep in on the shelf and never use it.
