As with ALL safety gear, the most important thing is a proper fit. I love my Black Armour CF helmet, but it expires in 2025, so I will be shopping for a replacement. Over the next few months, I plan on trying on various helmets to find the best fit. There aren't any dealers near my home, so I will check out vendors at track days. A guy like Ron at Discovery Parts is invaluable, as is the staff at WIne Country at Sebring.

By the one that FITS!!!!  That holds for other safety gear, especially HANS, fire protection and the seat.
