Speedway Motors' New SA2020 Helmets Provide the Best Value

Whether you are a seasoned racer, or just hit the occasional weekend autocross event, safety should be one of your top concerns. All sanctioning bodies cover their required safety equipment in their rule books, and even at the local level your track will spell out their minimum safety requirements needed to run at their facility. While some of these rules will differ depending upon racing class, vehicle type, and horsepower level, one thing in common to all forms of racing is the use of a race car helmet.

While a racing suit protects your body from fire, in the grand scheme of racing a fire is quite rare (though we wholeheartedly recommend the highest rated suit your racing budget can afford). On the other hand, racing-induced wrecks are much more common, and therefore even at the sportsman level racing helmets are mandatory. Protecting your head (and its contents!) are paramount. Brain injuries and concussions are no joke and a Snell SA2020 racing helmet offers protection from blunt force trauma caused by impacts, rollovers, and more.

Speedway Motors' latest safety equipment offering is our SA2020 composite fiberglass Snell SA helmet. Suitable for use in all forms of motorsports, from paved and dirt oval, to drag racing, autocross, and more, our newest racing helmets combine incredible value with the top-rated features everyone is looking for in today’s helmet designs while meeting all of Snell’s stringent SA2020 certifications for impact and fire protection.

Lightweight Composite Fiberglass for Comfort

Weight is the enemy of a racer, and we are not just talking about the weight of the race car, but that of the driver and everything else that goes into the car. A helmet must be light, not only to keep overall weight down, but to prevent driver fatigue. A heavy helmet is tough on a racer’s neck, cornering forces exert a lot of pressure that a racer must counter, tiring the racer. A lightweight drag racing helmet or autocross helmet is not only more comfortable but allows the racer to concentrate on what matters most—the race itself.

Our SA2020 composite fiberglass helmet weighs in at just 56 ounces, which makes it one of the lightest composite fiberglass helmets we carry at a value that cannot be matched by other helmet brands. Our weight savings comes not only from the composite fiberglass shell itself, but the use of other lightweight materials including the knit fireproof lining, polycarbonate eye shield, and more. You will feel the difference when you slip this helmet on and hit the track.

A SA2020 Certified Helmet with The Most Popular Features

Having the latest certification is one thing, and it being a great value is certainly tops on the list. However, when you start adding up the features we have added to our new SA2020 helmet you will wonder just exactly how we do it (sorry, trade secrets and all!). 

Our new SA2020 helmet was designed with all the features racers are looking for these days. We have already mentioned how light our new helmets are but look at the generous eye port opening, leaving not only plenty of room for prescription eyewear or sunglasses, but it provides a vast viewing area safely behind a rubber sealed 3mm polycarbonate visor that includes pre-installed posts for C-style tear offs. The optically correct visor can be replaced with one of our optional replacement visors in Clear, Light Smoke, Dark Smoke, or Chrome.

Features That Keep You Cooler and Safer

We optimized the airflow through our new helmet to keep you cool with three high-flow vents. Two inlet vents located at chin level and the forehead, and an exit vent at the back of the head. These provide continual airflow through the helmet keeping you cool. Combined with the soft knit fireproof lining you will stay comfortable and dry. When the time comes to remove your Snell racing helmet we know all too well how frustrating it can be to pull the chin strap free, especially with gloves on. We added a tether to our buckle to make separating the chin strap a simple one-handed motion.

Finally, with the popularity and lower cost of entry for Head and Neck restraint systems we have made the addition of using a HANS-type device even easier with our updated SA2020 helmet by drilling the proper mounting hole locations and pre-installing the correct M6 metric internal thread posts directly into the helmet during manufacturing. This allows you to hit the track, ready to go, with one less step and ensures the HANS fasteners are properly located and installed. Even at the sportsman level we encourage racers to invest in a head and neck restraint. We offer our SA2020 helmet in a helmet and restraint kit with storage bag as well.

Why You Want a Snell SA2020 Helmet

Snell’s latest safety rating, SA2020, supersedes the most recent certification, which was the SA2015 helmet. You can learn more about the certification differences in our Snell helmet buyer’s guide where we discuss the various Snell SA helmet ratings. Currently, 2021 is considered a “transition year” and many sanctioning bodies, including IMCA, WISSOTA, SCCA, NHRA, and others, will allow the use of older helmets through a specific period. For NHRA and SCCA that means SA2010 helmets are acceptable through end of the year/2021 racing season. The SA2015 helmets are expected to expire at the end of 2026. IMCA currently allows the use of a SA2010 or SA2015 helmet, but we strongly encourage you to confirm with the track or event sanctioning body for any specific safety equipment rules. The latest SA2020 helmet certification from Snell is good for 10 years according to most rules, so you are likely looking at a 2031 expiration, and when you can get our composite fiberglass SA2020 Snell racing helmet for the price of an outgoing SA2015 helmet model, why not gain those extra years of use for free?

All that said, Snell highly encourages racers to replace their helmets with a Snell rating every five years. Helmets see a lot of banging around getting in and out of race cars, they are often dropped or fall off the shelf in the trailer, and so forth. Obviously any serious on-track collision warrants immediate replacement of your helmet as well. Regular inspection will quickly find cracks or other damage necessitating replacement and when not in use be sure to use something like a helmet bag for secure storage, and if you’re looking to really extend the life of your helmet we encourage the use of a balaclava or “head sock” to minimize sweat and dirt transfer to the helmet’s liner and further protect you from open flames in instances of fire.
