I picked up a Pyrotect of the same line as WD40 has in his picture above, except mine is flat black. My cousin has one in gloss black also. I can tell this SA2005 has a lot more safety in mind than my old M95. The helmet extends lower over the jaw and farther forward on the cheek bones. It felt strange at first, but the better padding and removable/washable liner are really nice. I would not recommend flat black. It shows fingerprints worse than the gloss ones.

M class helmets are allowed in Solo 2. Not sure about Solo I but you'll need SA rated for most other track day events.

Here's mine.

I picked it up at the bike helmet shop for like $60. Pretty comfy and light except it gets toasty with the shield all the way down and no airflow. Came with a clear and smoked face shield and a felt bag. M2005 rated.

Just started thinking about auto cross since I'm in the process of selling my track bike, I would most likely use my daily rider helmet. Painted by me off course.
