A: Helmets are generally not repairable and need to be replaced. In the event of any impact or blow (ranging from a hard crash to dropping the helmet), the general rule is the helmet should no longer be used as the damage may not be visible but may nevertheless reduce the protective capabilities of the helmet. If you purchased a Specialized helmet within the past 5 years and damaged it in a crash, you may be eligible for a discount on a new helmet through our assisted replacement program.
