2014 Helmet Info

There has been some discussion about whether IKF will change any helmet rules for 2014.

The following is from the 2013 IKF rules manual and we have confirmation that the 2014 IKF rules will be the same. The following are the helmet specifications that will still be allowed in 2014.

Per IKF 105.1.6.1 HEAD GEAR: Full coverage (full face) helmets designed for competitive motorsports use are mandatory and must comply with one of the following:

2005 SA and M 12/20/2015

The Helmet rating should be on the inside of the helmet, but sometimes is hard to find. Here is a link for searching for Snell ratings for several helmet models.
