    Remember that safety is paramount in auto racing, and choosing the right helmet and maintaining it properly is essential for your protection on the track. Always consult with the professionals at Discovery Parts and refer to the manufacturer's guidelines for specific questions about your racing helmet.

    1. Why do I need a racing helmet?

      Auto racing helmets are designed to protect drivers from head injuries and fire during high-speed races and crashes. They are a crucial safety component in motorsports.
    2. How do I choose the right size Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber helmet? You should measure your head's circumference using a flexible tape measure, then refer to the manufacturer's sizing chart to select the appropriate size helmet.

    3. What safety standards should I look for in a Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber racing helmet? Look for helmets that meet safety standards like Snell and FIA depending on your racing discipline. These standards ensure the helmet's safety and quality. DOT helmets are designed for street use and not for racing and track use.
    4. What's the difference between full-face and open-face, and helmets? Full-face helmets provide the most protection with a complete face shield, while open-face helmets cover the top and sides of the head.
    5. Can I use a motorcycle helmet for auto racing? No, motorcycle helmets do not provide the same level of protection as auto racing helmets, as they are designed for different purposes. It's recommended to use a helmet specifically designed for auto racing which includes fire protection in addition to impact protection.
    6. How often should I replace my Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber auto racing helmet? Auto racing helmets should be replaced every 5-10 years, depending on the manufacturer's recommendations and usage. If the helmet is involved in a crash, it should be replaced immediately.
    7. Are expensive racing helmets safer than budget ones? Safety standards dictate the minimum safety requirements, so even budget-friendly helmets can offer protection. However it’s important to consider how lower-priced helmets are meeting the required testing standards. More expensive helmets are lighter, smaller, are constructed of superior materials, and often come with additional features then less expensive helmets.
    8. How do I maintain and clean my Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber racing helmet? Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and maintenance. You should clean the exterior, interior and shield with the Molecule Helmet Care Kit.
    9. Do I need to wear a balaclava under my Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber racing helmet? Balaclavas are typically not required for Driver's Education events, however they make wearing a helmet much, much more comfortable. Balaclavas will provide fire protection (if fire rated), help keep your helmet lining clean and order free by absorbing the majority of sweat while using it, and additionally balaclavas make putting your helmet on and taking it off by protecting your ears and keeping from from folding over when you helmet is worn. Discovery Parts recommends balaclavas from Alpinestars, OMP, Sabelt, Sparco, and Stand21. If you are entering sanctioned auto racing events, balaclavas will be required for fire protection.
    10. Is the SNELL SA Rating important? The Snell SA2020 certification is a safety standard established by the Snell Memorial Foundation for auto racing helmets. It sets the criteria and requirements that helmets must meet to be considered safe and suitable for use in motorsport events. Snell SA2020 certification is highly regarded in the motorsports industry and is often required or recommended by racing organizations and events. It signifies that a helmet has passed rigorous testing to provide maximum safety for drivers in various motorsport disciplines, including road racing, NASCAR, Formula 1, drag racing, and more. It's essential for drivers to check the specific safety standards required by the racing organizations they participate in to ensure compliance.
    11. Is the FIA helmet certification important? Yes, FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) certification is crucial for auto racing helmets, especially in the context of international motorsport events and many national and regional racing series in the USA. The FIA 8859-2015 standard is commonly associated with racing helmets used in various motorsport disciplines. Helmets certified to FIA 8859-2015 met the safety requirements set by the FIA and were widely accepted in many racing series
    12. Which helmet certification is the most stringent and the hardest to meet? The FIA 8860-2018 certification is considered the most stringent and advanced helmet certifications available for auto racing helmets, and it is often associated with top-tier motorsport categories like Formula 1. It's important to note that the FIA 8860-2018 helmets offer a high level of protection and their use is mandatory in many racing series. Drivers should always check the regulations of the racing series they intend to participate in to ensure compliance with helmet certification standards.
    13. Can I wear glasses with my Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber helmet? Most helmets have provisions for wearing glasses or goggles, but check the design to be sure. Most manufacturers feature helmet models with wider eye ports to better accommodate eye glasses.
    14. Are carbon fiber helmets better? Carbon fiber helmets are lightweight and strong, a top choice for racers. But remember, certification matters most.
    15. Can I use a used helmet for racing? It's best to buy a new helmet. Used helmets may have unseen damage or be out of date on safety standards.
    16. Can I buy replacement parts for my Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber helmet, like visors or padding? Many manufacturers offer replacement parts, including visors and padding, to extend your helmet's lifespan.
    17. How can I prevent helmet fogging during races? Anti-fog sprays and inserts are available to help keep your visor clear during races.
    18. What's the importance of proper helmet ventilation? Proper ventilation helps keep you cool and comfortable during races, reducing the risk of heat exhaustion.
    19. How do I store my Bell GT6 Pro Carbon Fiber helmet between races? Keep it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and chemicals in a bag designed to store your auto racing helmet, like the Discovery Parts Evo Helmet Bag.

    The Bell GT6 RD: A Racer's New Best Friend

    First off, slipping on the Bell GT6 Pro RD Carbon Fiber Helmet is like stepping into the future of racing. The weight (or the lack of it!) is the first thing you notice. On the track, the wide eyeport is a revelation - it's like having panoramic vision, and you never miss a beat. The built-in comms are a game-changer, too. I'm talking to my crew like they're sitting next to me, no shouting over the engine roar. And those Hans anchors? They clicked in without a fuss, and I barely notice them. Honestly, it's pricey, but you get what you pay for. Would I recommend it? Absolutely, especially if you're serious about your racing and your safety. If I had to nitpick, maybe they could add a few more air intake options, but that's just me wanting the moon.

    Built in Connectivity on the Track

    The Bell GT6 Pro RD helmet had me skeptical at first – could it really be worth the hype? Answer: a resounding yes. The carbon fiber shell is ridiculously light, and the fit is customizable in ways I didn't know I needed. The integrated radio communication kit is the cherry on top – crisp, clear, and how did I live without it? It's a serious investment, but compare it to what you'd spend tweaking your car for safety, and it's a no-brainer. I'd definitely recommend it to my fellow racers. Maybe add more shade options for the visor, and it's perfection.

    Brice U.
    The Whisper-Quiet Warrior of Helmets

    Racing with the Bell GT6 Pro RD, I was struck by the quiet. The helmet's noise insulation is something else – it's like being in your bubble, focused and undisturbed. The helmet's shell is feather-light, and the premium fabric inside is like a gentle hug for your head. I've had helmets that felt like a compromise between weight and safety, but this one delivers both without a hitch. It's a premium price for a premium helmet, and for anyone taking their racing seriously, I'd say go for it. Bell, all I'd ask for is maybe a sleeker design for the air intakes, but that's me nitpicking.

    Murphy S.
    Race Day Revolution

    From the moment I unboxed the Bell GT6 Pro RD, it was clear this wasn't just any helmet. On the track, it performed like a dream. The carbon fiber shell is so lightweight, it's almost like it isn't there, and the Hans anchors are so seamlessly integrated, they're practically invisible. The built-in communications are a leap ahead of what I've used before – crystal clear and so easy to use. Yes, the price is up there, but for the build quality and features, it's justifiable. I'd recommend it to any racer who values communication and comfort as much as safety. The only thing I'd change? Make the sunscreen adjustable on the go, and it's unbeatable.

    Say Hello to the King of Clarity

    Ever had a helmet where you can see everything like you're not wearing anything? That's the Bell GT6 Pro for you. The visibility is unmatched, and with the dark smoked shield, I'm tackling sun glare like a pro. Connecting to the cooling systems was a breeze, and the Hans anchors snapped right in place. I've worn helmets across the price spectrum, and this one stands out for blending high-end features with unbeatable clarity. It's a solid 'yes' from me, and while the price tag might make you pause, it's a worthy splurge. If Bell could throw in a pin-lock visor system, it would be the icing on the cake.
