Last weekend Tig posted a comment about Giro Pneumo's cracking. Since most posts get better responses during the week, I'd like to re-post out of curiosity. Tig noticed his helmet was cracked, I checked mine, cracked, same spot, got a few others to check and their Pneumo's were cracked as well. It seems to be in the same spots in the foam near the front of the helmet. If you hold the helmet upside down, look near the front of the helmet close. mine was cracked pretty good by the Giro decal. I don't know if this is a legit problem or not. I simply want a few more opinions from owners. If you own a 2001 or 2002 give it a look. Thanks!

I wonder if Lance's is OK?
The Roll Cage internal reinforcement should help with the helmet's integrityTig

...But only Giro would know if that is enough of a safety margin for them to stand behind their product and not recall it. I personally doubt the crack would split open on impact, exposing your head. I only mentioned it to spread the word of a potential problem and leave it up to the owners if they feel it is safe enough to keep using. The rest is up to Giro.

I was carrying mine one day and noticed that it was cracked right in the front. I called and they said I would need to send it in for them to look at and they replaced it with a 2003 model.
