The Gedi probably saved my life!
GEDI PROBABLY SAVED MY LIFE IN CYCLING ACCIDENT (Nevertheless…Gath caution that the Gedi is not designed for use on roads or highways or for use as a crash helmet or similar activities requiring a high level of impact protection.) The new Gedi with extra paddling probably saved my life on Sunday! I was actually using it while mountain biking. I came off my bike when a sharp right turn approached too fast on a gravel surface. I was doing about 50km/hr - 30mph when I hit a ditch and I eventually hit my head on a rock. The helmet absorbed the impact very well. It was comfortable the entire time. I must say hats off to you guys. I love it and have total confidence in it now after that crash. I was always wondering if they'd hold up to an impact like this while steep creeking. I've answered that question for myself:) I wasn't injured at all. My friends couldn't believe I didn't break my neck or get hurt at all! I was told it was a very spectacular crash. Too bad I don't have it on tape! My friends also couldn't believe 1. The helmet was not broken and 2. I didn't break my neck or have any concussion. The padding in that helmet felt great I must say! It looks bad on my behalf wearing your helmets while out biking I know, but that Gedi was so comfortable and light weight I figured it would do until I got a full face helmet when I can afford it.
