Snell Approved HelmetsThe next Snell Helmet Certification cycle will be designated Snell SA2015. We get asked often about the availability, but in actuality, the Snell SA2015 Helmets will not be available until October 1st, 2015 when the new standard takes effect. 

The major change when compared to the SA 2010 models, is all SA2015 Helmets will have the threaded backing plate for Head and Neck Restraints installed during the actual helmet construction. This change will making simpler for racers to attach their HANS hardware to the helmet, no longer will they need to drill holes and remove interior padding.

Unless you are racing professionally, in the top levels of the sport, the current SA2010 Helmet will easily be permitted by most sanctioning bodies or race tracks, at least into the year 2020.

Here is the Snell Foundation statement and the full specification.

We have and will continue to bring in the SA2010 helmets this year.  See the full line here.
