I have a SHoei RF-900 Helmet and It slipped out of my hands and fell about 3 ft onto a welcome mat on a wooden porch it has no scratches or marks. I was wondering if it is ruined now or how bad of a fall a helmet can take before its useless?
It should be fine. If you had it on and hit your head it might have been wrecked. The reason they say helmets are done after they have been hit is the foam on the inside compresses where your head hits it and it doesn't decompress after. So if you hit in the same spot agian there isn't any protection because the foam is as hard as a rock when it is fully compressed.
