 hey im sam (the guy in the pic) I WAS WEARING A HELMET!! i cant stress that enough, it was a a quality bern helmet... what actually hapened was i went big, i came up short, argyles snapped and i face planted and slid down the whole bank on m face. the reason the forks snapped was i rode them extremely hard for 2 years. everyday... it just cant handle it. rockshox gave me brand new forks even tho they wernt in warrenty, plus they send me the upgrades to the old ones. oh btw im $4000 down in dental bills, after the private health insurance.

 you're a lucky man getting a good replacement from rockshox, my warranty battle with them was a nightmare! That's a brutal pic, hope you're all fixed up now and are shredding again Salute

 That's always a nightmare hunting me....going with great speed doing all fine in one moment, then the fork snaps and bam! Protective gear can give you some comfort but in the end we all leave our faces on the trail as a sticker sometime...
