Default White or Black Helmet?


Hey guys, gloss white or flat black helmet time.

- I always thought that the black helmet looked nice and wanted one originally.
- I'm also from Ohio, it gets pretty hot here max temperature is around 100 degrees that I would race in. Which makes me consider getting a white helmet.

I'm afraid of the heat differences, I'm probably not going to be wearing the helmet outside of the car and the subbie does have a roof... with no sunroof.

Does a black helmet get much hotter than a white helmet?

Hope for a quick answer lol.


I thought that a stig helmet in black would be nice because I could just customize it with a paint job. Price difference doesnt effect me so much, I'm looking to keep this helmet for a long time.

I had a black helmet but plan to get white for the next one. I would always leave it out in the sun between runs and then burn my hands when I picked it up

With a closed cockpit car I wouldn't worry about it too much. But with sun exposure it makes a huge difference.

I like white..easier to paint if you want to later, plus its the same color as the Stig.

I just bought a HJC AR10 II white helmet, white looks ok. It's a nice hat too, it has removable washable pads.
