For DE types of things, motorcycle helmets are okay for all the clubs I've run with (5). Snell 2005 or 2010. But for racing stuff, the SA rating is likely required. The main difference as I understand it is fire resistance. Check with the club rules for the types of events you're going after.

I also agree w the comment above about fit. You cannot order a helmet online and expect it to fit unless you've already tried it out in that exact size. I like my Arai helmet's fit, but I had to try some 15 helmets before I found it.
