I was asking the question because my helmets are both SA 2000. I find it 
interesting that a 10-year old helmet is "possibly compromised" because of 
age or involvement in an accident. I am managing several research projects 
for helicopter rotor blades of composite construction. Some of these blades 
are almost 15 years old and haven't reached their fatigue life yet and are 
considered safe to fly. We are even patching bullet holes and putting them 
back on the aircraft. At $250 to $400 bucks a pop for a helmet, I would 
like to see the science behind  a decision to disallow a helmet because of 
its age.
