Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cracks in relativly new Atmos?

I bought a Giro Atmos about 3 months ago, and I use it almost every day.

I was inspecting it and I found cracks in the foam underneith the carbon parts on one side of the helmet.

Is this normal? I've never crashed before. If I wiggle it, that whole side of the helmet moves ever so slightly.

I hope this is covered under the warranty.

Same happened w/ an Atmos I'd bought in Virginia. Took it to a Denver store while on vacation and they replaced it, no questions asked.
