When do auto racing helmets expire?
Because components break down with use and time, and helmet certifications and standards are updated every five years, auto racing helmets expire 12 years after the date of manufacture, or earlier in some circumstances. Consult the manufacturer's guidelines for an exact expiration date. Always replace your helmet after a serious crash, even if it has not yet expired.
What is a racing helmet certification?
Helmets are tested and certified for use under specific circumstances, and the helmet you choose must be rated for your intended use—such as auto racing or karting. Ratings include, but are not limited to, Snell and Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).
