G-Force Vs Simpson Helmets

Well ive been looking at SA-2010 Helmets for road courses (Lime Rock here in CT) and I was looking for some feedback on if anyone has either of these two helmets or and idea on which is a better/safer helmet. Only 50 bucks differnce between the two so I dont care about that although I would perfer the matte black that G-force offers.

I'd go for the Pro Elim simply because it has more venting. I like airflow around my knoggen.

Just saw this ... congrats on the helmet, but I bet when you first posted you have gotten more insight from the AutoX forum.

Anywho ... what will you be racing in? Are you going SCCA Solo?

Damn, wish I'd seen this thread. IMO, the most important aspect of a helmet is how it fits you. The top of the line carbon forced air with integral scalp massager with a poor fit sucks compared to a base model that fits well, IMO.
