    Hey, guys. Never posted here, but I've been coming out to SOLOs for a little while now.

    Can someone tell me if the SOLO loaner helmets are SA rated? This is probably a lot to ask, but if they are, would it be possible for me to borrow a couple of them at the end of October for a weekend HPDE? I hate to be that guy, but thought it couldn't hurt to ask.

    Mine are M rated, which will get me through the auto-x events, so I'm not really to the point of needing to buy auto racing dedicated helmets...

    Honestly I'm not sure if our helmets are sa rated or not. Find me or Shari at the next event and we will work something out.

    So, I looked at the loaner helmets at PE#5, and they are M rated as well. Looks like I will be waiting until October of next year to buy an SA2015, and I'll have to figure something out for my track day. This is probably the worst possible time to need a new helmet...

     

    Thanks anyway.

    When you're looking for a helmet, check out www.usracegear.com or check them out in person, they're located in Cincinnati. I got my helmet from there, the owner is super helpful and let me nasty up all the helmets they had in inventory to find one that fit right. I walked out spending $200 more than I wanted, but I got a helmet that fits nice, the one i was originally set on was real uncomfortable in every size, it just didn't fit my head right.

     

    I know it's a bad time to buy a helmet, but perhaps you could buy one and sell it immediately after the event?

     

    What weekend/day(s) is the event?
