Topic: SA2020?

I know the rules say 2010 is good through 2020, but ahhh. ... It's 2021 now, and it seems like a lot of manufacturers haven't made their cheap SA2020 lids yet.

Just to be sure we're still OK with 2010 this year? Is there a plan for a mid-year rule change?

Per Pagel on Facepages, helmets good through end of March.

Buy a cheap SA2015.  Are you really gonna wear a helmet for 10 years?

Re: SA2020?

Long story short: Manufacturers are just getting around to stocking entry-level SA2020. We're keeping an eye on it and figuring out when we can expect a reasonable supply of them to be available, at which time we will phase out SA2010 with plenty of advance notice so yinz can get new lids. That said, SA2015 helmets are good through 2025 if you need one in a pinch.

Longer story less short: This has apparently happened every single time Snell have offered their new ratings. Whether they're slow with certifying helmets to those new ratings, manufacturers are slow to submit them, or there's something else happening, who knows? Either way, Lemons knows about this and are trying to get answers of our own.

^ Snell releases the final standard in April but does not allow manufacturing to start until October.

Re: SA2020?

As an update on our official position: We expect SA2010 to be usable through the end of the year in Lemons EXCEPT at NJMP, where the State Police have issued a memo that SA2010 are not allowed within the state of NJ at racing events (many of you have seen this, already).

If anything changes with that stuff, we'll let you know. Should be an email to NJMP racers once we get some supplier updates that are outstanding.

I did my last one. It's amazing what Washing does for things. Actually More than 10, because the SA2010 came out early then.
