I would agree it sounds like it was somthing pretty big to break it like that....i would say it did its job, but will it next time if its repaired!

A buddy of mine got hit in the head with a driveshaft believe it or not wearing a Simpson RX8 and it left a good size crack in it. He was a little woozy but other than that he was fine. The helmet was still in good shape before the incident and wasn't all that old but after that it had deffinitly done it's job and got retired and replaced.

If you got a 5 dollar head, put a 5 dollar helmet on it. nah just joking, sounds like it did its job, replace it.
