I agree, for most.
It certainly saved my life in a huge hit & run. Threw me 60 feet. Helmet and knowing how to break saved my life. Amazingly didnt even get a tear in my clothing. Crazy sore for months!
About a year later started treatment for Hep C, cured but those meds disabled me... so throwing caution to the wind I now cycle without. Blame the crazy docs and big pharma *ok!?
So, yeah, 99.9% of adults should wear a helmet correctly and not worry about it looking fashionably - some of the new ones have so many cooling holes in them you barely know you are wearing one - but for a small % we love to have that one last feel of the wind... ya know.
btw, some of the major companies with crash guarantees will send you a new helmet after a crash along with a certificate that you survived a crash! Pretty cool!
