    Default Full Face Racing Helmet Recommendations

    Looking for a full face racing helmet to go with my lifeline harness. Been looking around and can't make my mind up, so any recommendations would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    I'd go with Simpson or Bell.

    I prefer Simpson helmets. Impact makes a good helmet. That's what I wore the last two years I raced. I like simpsons better though. Bell is making a better helmet now than in the past. I haven't had a bell in years. Just make sure you try em on what ever you buy. They all fit different even same make different models.

    This is a good idea. Bring cash they will deal on them. I got a carbon fiber simpson for 450 cash at the track.

    Simpson world (San Pedro) will also sell blems too, typically the blems are paint issues, I bought my Bandit for less than 350 a couple years ago, seeing how I was repainting it, the issue was not a problem.
    They send out mailers all the time for sales and combo specials.
    Also had a bell a few years ago, and was a very comfy fit too, cant go wrong with either IMO!

    Anyone have pic's or installation instructions for the Lifeline helmet restraint rig. I bought the Lifeline restraint system but no instructions were included. I have a full face helmet but I need to know where to install the connections on it. Hope this is close enough to the original post not be a hijack...
    TIA
