Open-Face Auto Racing Helmets, Snell SA2015 Rated
SA2015 is the latest Snell Foundation rating for automotive racing helmets. This helmet rating has been developed to provide the best safety protection for auto racing drivers who are restrained in their vehicles. SA2015 helmets are tested for flame retardance, and additional tests ensure compatibility with HANS® Devices. Female M6 threaded inserts are pre-installed in the shell for installation of head restraint anchors (sold separately). An SA-rated helmet may not meet DOT specifications for street use, such as on motorcycles.
SCCA will continue to accept SA2005 helmets through the 2016 racing season. As of January 1 2017, SCCA will require SA2010 or newer helmets.
