When choosing a helmet,
determine what type of helmet your sanctioning body requires.
Apex Performance carries SNELL rated helmets. SNELL helmets are
broken down into two classifications: "SA" for sports
applications and "M" for Motorcycle.
All SA standard helmets are sold at an additional cost because they
are designed for auto racing and must pass flammability and impact
resistance tests that the M rated helmets do not require. Key
differences between SA and M rated helmets (from the SNELL
- SA standard requires flammability test while the M standard does
- SA standard has rollbar impact test while M standard does not.
- SA standard allows narrower visual field than M standard (Some
SA helmets aren't street legal).
Choose your helmet wisely ~ your head is not replaceable!
