Racing seasons are winding down, Christmas is coming, and all the new 2013 gear is on its way into stores for you to purchase. Many of you might be considering getting a new helmet this year, which is great. Your head is the most important thing you own and you should take care of it. Helmets come in a variety of styles, colors, and prices which give a lot of options to consumers. One option riders shouldn’t overlook is the little sticker on the helmet that denotes it meets Snell certifications. Snell destroys thousands of helmets. Thousands of helmets. That’s to ensure that the one thing between your most valuable asset and sudden impact is doing its job – your helmet.
