Back in January we posted a video of Perris Benegas laying down some of the sickest riding we’ve seen in a long time but theres been some serious backlash on forums like Ride UK BMX Magazine where a lot of people have been commenting on the fact she wasn’t wearing a helmet.
You can head over here to see some of the discussion but the general consensus is that you should always wear a helmet – especially when you are boosting this big – and doing such tech tricks – and when you’re a role model to so many others.
What do you think? Do you always wear a helmet? Do you think it should be down to the individual or should it be something compulsory like wearing a seatbelt in a car?
