Helmet expiration.


Recommended Posts

So, its the middle of 2019.  I have a 2010 SA helmet.  The rules say they are good for 11 years so I can wait for the SA2020 helmets to come out in 2020 and be good with my helmet ALL next year (2020) right?

 

I mean, why buy a 2015 brain bucket now and loose 5 years?

 

3.10.1. Undamaged, full-face, Snell Type SA2010 or newer helmet, or FIA certification is acceptable. All helmets expire 11 years after date of certification.

Cool.  Maybe you should shy away from plastic helmets.  My helmets are not $89 more like $800 so throwing them away may be your option but not mine.

 

Anyone has an answer to the question I asked and not opinions about how unsafe I am?

This is not my "opinion" this is at the recommendation of SFI, FIA, Snell, and DOT, and probably others, not to mention the helmet manufacturer's themselves.
