Alright guys and gals,

I come from a finance background and don't really have any mechanical knowledge to contribute to the forum, but I will try and share anything I think may be of use to others!

The RSS Full Face Snell and FIA approved helmet with Schroth HANS posts is 299 on Demon Tweaks and a couple of other UK retailers.......I thought a good price point for it.

However a little of digging and I found the manufacturer in France sells them direct...the webpage is 100% in French and the translate doesn't work, but its easy enough to navigate by using google translate when needed.

To cut the long story short - I paid EUR 225, (153!) for exactly the same Helmet. The shipping was only 13 Euros and came with DPD.

I had it in my hands 6 working days after I placed the order and would highly recommend this to others.

My head was averaging a measurement of 58.4cm and the Large (58-59) is nice and snug.

Note the euro rate is 1.36 at time of writing: so the full face would work out at 165 exc shipping - still a whopping saving

That's a result.
Hans are mandatory for racing in 2016 so could be a few still not using & needing to upgrade helmets so good timing.
Very Happy

So I'm guessing helmets without Hans posts will be out of date for next year, has there been a rule change regarding helmets?

No, the helmets still have to meet the same standards, but some of the (older) standards did not require Frontal Head Restraint anchors. However, to use a FHR, you need to have homologated anchor points.

Some of the SAH2010 helmets had a M6 threaded insert already in place to retro-fit the posts.

If you don't need to have FHR, then your helmet doesn't need to have posts.
