Helmet sizes vary by a huge amount depending on which brand.
Meaning, if you have a medium in Brand X, that doesn't mean a medium in Brand Y will fit...
Those helmet sites usually have fitment guides, but they're not necessarily that accurate.

I can take my helmet now and get the fitting out of that to get a new one right?
And WD40 thanks again for the info ... I am pulling those sites up now.
- - - - wrc_fan ... myself and several in our area are looking for local helmet shops ... but can't seem to find one ? ? ? wierd I know. I live in the 4th / 5th largest city in the Continental US and not a single helmet shop. Everyone I talk to order online.

G-Force has an outlet store online, don't remember the url, but google it, it'll pop up.
They sell discontinued and minor blemish helmets for cheap.
I tried on some helmets at a local motorcycle shop, then ordered the size that fit best.
If you're buying a SA helment though, I would try to buy locally.

IMHO, If you can find one locally, (or drive for a bit) that'll be the best way to go.
"Fitting" a helmet online is kind of tough, and you don't want to have to ship a couple helmets back and forth till you get it right.
Your head is a rather important part, and an ill fitting helmet is almost as dangerous as not wearing one at all.
After all that...there are a couple good websites. (maybe you can fit locally, yet buy for cheaper online)

That's entirely weird that your local club is being more strict than the SCCA in it's helmet requirements.

Anybody have any good recommendations for a good price site on Snell Helmets?
I know I know ... I am being lazy and not using the Search button ... but I am at work and the internet is working pretty slow today.
