Not sure what difference distance makes with choice of helmet? My girl and I were riding our bikes 18 months ago and a few miles from home. She crashed behind me at slow speed at a turn lane entrance. 8 ribs, collar bone, punctured lung. Intensive care for 7 days. Her helmet, FF, saved her life. Helmet was gouged, and damaged all along the left side of the chin bar. When I approached her at the scene, she was unconscious. Thought she was dead. Couldn't get her to respond. Only after a few minutes, did she wake up. Impact with the ground at idle speed crushed her body, helmet saved her life. She's ridden since childhood. I have also. 40+years of riding. I consider her one of the best, experienced riders I've ridden with.
Soft head, hard ground.
I get it! Glad she is OK and has recovered from that experience. I applaud your courage to share the story. You got me thinkin' fo sho!
