Hi, I am thinking of going to the track soon, and I think I may need a helmet. My question is what type of helmet must it be and where can I get one? Also, how much is the helmet going to cost me? Thanks alot.
just make sure that the helmet you buy says 'snell' on it. every five years they change the regulations on it and make the new snell rating. if you buy one now it will be a snell 2000 and next year they will be going snell 2005. it wont matter if it is open face, full face, whatever. if its designed for motorcross, but says snell on it, you can use it.
i think cycle barn might be a local company to the northwest, but that is where i got mine. i went to the clearance area and my open face helmet was had for just over fifty bux. you can spend from about that much up to several hundred dollars on a helmet, i preferred the painless method.
you should be okay with the snell 2000 up until 2010, btw.
