Nope! Not at all.

Never really worn a helmet for longer than a year-ish. I commute a lot so about an average of 2 hours 4 days a week, plus the weekend twists and trackdays.

Wash the inserts and wipe down my outer every other day or so. Ride with my vents open whenever it's warm out. I suppose that helps a bit too.

Hmm..

Maybe I don't sweat much, but I've never had to wash the liner of any of my helmets. I just dug my old helmet (an icon mainframe from like 2003) and it still has that new helmet smell. weird...
