    Anyone know when Nationals will declare that we need new helmets?

    Mark, if you have a 2000 standard helmet, you need a new helmet now. Solo rule 4.3.1. Since the 2015 standard helmets are now available, the 2000 helmets are not allowed. For some reason, the club racers get another year.

    You have until the start of next year to get a helmet.
    From the Nov 14 Fastrack.

    Per 4.3.1, Snell 2000 helmets are considered compliant for 2015. Snell 2015 helmets will be considered compliant when they become available

    To be specific. As of January 1, 2016 the oldest compliant helmet will be Snell 2005.

    Snell 2010's are on clearance now, so I suggest picking one up before they're gone if you're looking for a bargain.

    Per the December, 2015 Fastrack:

    "In addition, the SEB has approved an extension of eligibility for Snell 2000 helmets to 1/1/2017, so the “SA2000” and
    “M2000” references in the above rule will remain in place for 2016."

    No need to ugrade your SA2000 helmets until 1/1/2017!

    I understood the extension through 2015 as Snell 2015's weren't available until October, but I don't understand this extension. Virtually every manufacturer now has their Snell 2015's widely available.

    It's possible that regions who have a whole bunch of Snell 2000 loaner helmets and can't afford new ones asked for this.
