approved helmet?

Post by kolsen » Fri Jun 22, 2018 5:06 pm

Hey y'all,

Before dropping the $$ on a helmet, want to make sure I can use something that's not specifically listed on the 2018-CIK-FIA-Approved-Helmets list ( http://www.asncanada.com/wp-content/upl ... lmetsR.pdf )

I have a line on Shoei that's Snell M2015 certified, and see that this has been added by ASN Canada FIA, it's just on a make/model that's explicitly lister on this document.

Thanks!

Keith

M2015 is a motorcycle helmet.

SA2015 is for automotive Motorsports.

K2015 is for karting.

CM2016 is for children’s Motorsports.

Helmets are inarguably the most important piece of equipment you bring to the track and not the place to pinch pennies. YMMV.

Snell M2015 is listed in the ASN document, so there is no issue with a Snell M2015 helmet.
