I’ll looking to purchase helmets for our race team. Will be racing SNORE, MORE, and may cherry pick a BITD race or two over the next few seasons. BITD is most stringent and requires SA2015 helmets. Question is how long will SA2015 requirement be in place? Current Impact & other helmet manuf are SA2015, when will they come out with SA2020? When will rules change to require SA2020?

I’m trying to avoid purchasing new helmets that are going to be out of spec shortly thereafter.

THANKS!

your SA2015 is good until 2025.

Per the Snell website they are not allowing manufacturers to sell SA2020 helmets until Oct 1, 2020. So yeah, buying a helmet now is like buying a 5-year old helmet.

If you bought a helmet now could the manufacturer re-certify it afterwards so it can be used in races beyond 2025?

There are websites that rent out safety equipment, helmets, suits, neck restraints, etc. If you're going to buy a 2015, wait until the 2020's come out, 2015 will all go on discount. Don't buy a 2010. Pretty sure the helmets can't be recertified, design requirements change.
