Default Pyrotect SA2005 HELMET SNELL RATING TAG HELP!

Can anyone tell me where i can find the holograph or sewn label on a pyrotect open faced SA2005 helmet?

Does anyone own one of these and can verify with me how i can find this tag to show the officials?

I am currently trying to buy one, but the person is unable to find the tag on the helmet.. only a small stamp ontop of the helmet.


please help

They're on the inside of the helmet typically under one of the pads...



Pull back the padding and you will find it.

But honestly you can get a new zamp helmet or something for ~80 bucks that has a 2010 certification that will be great good for years. 2005 certification will only be good for a couple more years for a lot of racing organizations.

I would never trust a 80 dollar helmet ever. I use a Stilo full face helmet for dirt racing as well as Subaru stuff

If the $80 helmet has the appropriate certification, what's not to trust?

I think it's silly I even have to wear a helmet for auto-x, so in my opinion any cheap-ass helmet that has the appropriate certification is overkill.

Not everyone can afford a $1000 Stilo...but not sure I would trust my brain in an $80 helmet either. I've been using Pyrotect SA helmets for road racing and autox for many years now...fortunately I've never had to test their ability to protect my gray matter.

As long as it has the appropriate rating, the only difference between an $80 helmet and an $800 helmet is how comfortable it is.

I was looking a little too far ahead for a change at College Station one time, drove into the divot in the concrete that I suppose the course designer saw as a "feature" (and that I had noted in the walk thru...) and almost brained myself on the B-pillar. I was wearing the Pyrotect helmet in question and was glad I had it.

I've seen cars roll at autox and rallyx. I can totally understand why it's required.
