Because you can't know the helmet's history for sure. For example, it could have been dropped at some point, it could have been left in the heat of direct sunlight or on top of the fuel tank where it could be exposed to gas fumes from the filler cap which could all affect the integrity and performance of the foam which is meant to protect your head.

That and you want your helmet to fit you well. A poorly fitted helmet is almost useless.

I sprung for a nolan n90s. Pricey but I'm investing in my head. I'll just have to hold up on the compression armor for now. I'm dying to ride but I'm not dying to die
