Is there anywhere locally that sells Snell SA helmets? Been down the internet purchase route before and the sizing isn't guaranteed.

Blue Buzzard or R&D, but they won't have a lot in stock. Mostly cheaper brands like Zamp.

Good reason for a road trip to Montreal to visit Carl @ Perry Auto. :)

Note my edit, I have ZERO idea what kind of brain misfire had me type PEI. Perry is in Montreal.

(Wasn't even drinking... at least I don't think? Maybe? Who can keep track! Carry on, nothing to see here!)

I am glad you clarified, I was really starting to wonder how I had missed Carl relocating

Sorry for reviving an old thread, how about the Moncton area?
When I was up north there was "Miramichi Speed & Custom" that could order them, but I'm not sure if they ever kept any in stock though.
Wanna get back in the game after a brief introduction in 2013. haha :lol:

Martin, you don't need a snell SA rated helmet for autoslalom ...a regular M rated one will do.

But on a side note, maybe someone will know the answer to this:
If one were to visit a motorcycle shop and find a M rated snell helmet that fit nice, then if they ordered the SA version of the same helmet ...would it fit the same? (ie, the hans anchors wouldn't intrude, the fire proof material be the same density, etc...)

Thanks
Stacy

That answered my question actually. haha
So G Bourque it is!

...Also I might be migrating towards Time Attack/Lapping relatively soon-ish, so I'd rather find and SA to be safe.
