Youth Auto Racing Helmets
SFI 24.1 2015 and 2020 Helmets are designed for youth auto racing applications and approved by most Junior Dragster and Quarter Midget organizations. SFI 24.1 Youth Helmets are manufactured with a smaller shell size in comparison to the larger shell of a helmet that is Snell SA2015 or 2020 rated. The smaller shell size may provide a better fit and a lighter weight for many young drivers who participate in youth oriented forms of auto racing.
Snell CMR-2016 Helmets are typically accepted for youth kart racing. If you are considering this helmet for other forms of youth motorsports, we strongly suggest consulting your rule book before purchasing. Some youth auto racing associations and/or race tracks, do not have the Snell CMR2016 helmet listed as approved head protection.
Snell SA-2020 Helmets provide the current standard of helmet technology and are approved for all forms of Youth and Adult auto racing competition. The larger shell size allows for additional interior padding, when compared to a SFI 24.1 helmet.
Snell SA-2015 Helmets are the previous helmet standard. Most race tracks and sanctioning bodies will allow the Snell SA2015 helmets to be used in competition until at least 2025. The larger shell size allows for additional interior padding, when compared to a SFI 24.1 helmet.
How To Measure for Helmet Sizing: The circumference of your child's head should be measured at a point approximately one inch above the eyebrows in front, and at a point in the back of the head that results in the largest possible measurement. Take several measurements and it is best to use the largest result.
