SA2005/Expired Helmet Use Extension

Post by Rotary-Amuse » Wed Mar 30, 2016 1:54 pm

I am sure there may be a few out there like me who let their SA2005 helmets expire prior to getting a replacement

The problem I am seeing now is that a lot of SA2015 helmets are on backorder with indefinite delivery times

In talking to an authorized helmet dealer in the area, he told me that a lot of clubs have extended their expired helmet use for a few months due to the pent up demand in SA2015 helmets with lack of supply and indefinite delivery time

Could an expired helmet extension say through June/July be a possibility or will I have to beg, borrow, steal, or share a helmet for my first event (assuming the helmet is still in good condition)?

Looking forward to getting the season underway and seeing the motorsports family again!

Thanks,
Rick

(I know I know shame on me for not replacing my helmet sooner...)



EDIT - sorry I am seeing this has been discussed in the below thread and that the BOD is not relaxing on the usage of expired helmets... Beg, borrow, steal, share it is!

For anyone still looking for an SA2015... I called a couple vendors 2 weeks ago and had pretty good luck:

http://www.apexperformance.net/
Good stock on most sizes of Zamp, all sizes Racequip, Stilos (except XL/XXL)
Offered promo code: 'APEX' 10% off, free shipping, free helmet bag

http://soloracer.com/
Good stock on all sizes of Pyrotect

Obviously inventory may have changed in the last 2 weeks, but they seemed to be very well stocked at the time.
