I would wear it , helmets are not cheap , mine has fallen off the handle bar and off the chair one time each , I am still using it .

If you send it back to the factory I've heard they can check it for you for free with an X-ray machine or the sorts.

A good company will do this, I wouldn't expect that for a 120 dollar helmet. When it comes down to it, is the price of a new helmet potentially worth your life?

There is NO "potential" here. that helmet IS NOT damaged in any way.

If you would want the piece of mind, then go get it xrayed and then subsequently replaced. I agree there is a good chance it's not damaged but maybe keep it as a spare or passenger one and replace it with a new one for you if it bothers you that much.

What size is it? What model? If you're going to replace it anyway can I have it if it's an XL?

Vr laguna red L with XL cheekpads, (i had chipmunk cheeks when it was new) might try L cheek pads since it's broken in now.

i wouldn't replace it, especially since you say the impact was on the chin part of it. I'll bet it's just fine.

I stuck my sweaty balls into my helmet the other day, do you guys think its still ok to wear ? Kinda smells like Whitey's ass crack though, cause thats the last place my balls were.
