|SAVE 25% on all Snell SA2010 and SAH2010 Helmets!|
Most racing organizations will accept SA2010 helmets until the SA2020 helmets arrive in five years. That gives you 5 full seasons of racing use. The Snell Memorial Foundation recommends retiring a helmet after 5 years of use, so you're likely to get the full useful life out of an SA2010 or SAH2010 helmet purchased today. Check with your sanctioning body to be sure.
The Snell Foundation SA ratings have been developed to provide the best safety protection for auto racing drivers who are restrained in their vehicles. An SA-rated helmet may not meet DOT specifications for street use, such as on motorcycles. As of January 1 2012, SCCA requires SA2005 or newer helmets.
