For Solo the SCCA requires helmets with a Snell rating, either M, SA or K. The most common brand you will find worn by competitors at the SCCA Solo Nationals is HJC. You can find them at most motorcycle shops where you will be able to try them on (very important). Whichever Helmet you buy make sure it has the Snell sticker inside the helmet. It will not pass tech inspection otherwise.

I have a Bell and an HJC and I find I am using the HJC in more events because it is just more comfortable.

Good luck.
