Default Need a helmet for NASA

Im looking to buy a hemet, and because im in prescott, they dont have any shops that sell car rated snell helmets, so i need to drive down to phoenix next friday and pick one up before the may 2nd event. I need to know a good shop to go to.

Im looking at a full face helmet, is there any reason i shouldnt get one since my car has functional air bags? i have heard that if the air bags go off and you are wearing full face, it will break your face, but i have no conformation of that.

perfectly fine to use a motorcycle helmet. you don't need an auto snell rating really, until you get into time trials and race group. open face is better with airbags for sure. i got my first open face for the track at ridenow.

Have you tried an online search for something local? I knew a few places that stocked them, like my simpson that i bought locally, but they are all out of business. Im not sure who might have auto rated helmets in stock now. i used a motorcycle helmet the first two years i did events.

As for something like simpson, bell etc. you really need to try them on for perfect fit as they all have different shapes.
