      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.

      7. Are expensive racing helmets safer than budget ones? Safety standards dictate the minimum safety requirements, so even budget-friendly helmets can offer protection.

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?

Drivers should always check the regulations of the racing series they intend to participate in to ensure compliance with helmet certification standards.

      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.

      Super Comfort and Impressive Design

      The lightweight feel of this helmet makes racing much more comfortable. You hardly feel it on your head yet it provides an impeccable level of protection. I used to have trouble with my old helmet feeling like a load on my head, but not with the HP10. Ways to improvement it ? I honestly can't see where; this helmet hits all the right spots!

      Cedric B.
      Ultimate Open-face Protection

      As a long-time racer, this is one of the best open-face helmets I’ve owned. It embodies superior protection without compromising on the freedom and breeze that comes with open-face designs. It doesn't hurt that it is visually striking too, with a sleek carbon finish. It compares highly favorably to my previous helmet which was significantly bulkier and less appealing.

      Reece H.
      Amazing Adjustable Features

      The standout feature of this Bell HP10 Carbon Open Face Helmet is its adjustability. With the adjustable carbon sun peak and integrated sunscreen, the protection and comfort level are outstanding. These features were lacking in my old helmet. There is not much I'd suggest for improvement as it is a great helmet. I’d definitely advise other drivers to try it out.

      Ashton M.
      Ultimate Combo

      Bell HP10 combines three major aspects that any racer would look for in a helmet; style, comfort, and safety. It is undeniably sleek with a carbon finish, ensuring that you maintain style even when racing. The helmet doesn’t compromise on comfort either, as it comes with adjustable and removable pads. Lastly, the safety this helmet offers is paramount, thanks to its carbon shell and integrated Hans anchors. All in all, it’s worth every cent!
