Check out http://www.ogracing.com - they've been good to me for racing supplies for my Lotus.

www.saferacer.com is good. All of the main mfg's make a good product, it is mainly about comfort.

Totally agree. I ordered a Simpson Helmet from their site.....a great looking helmet, but it was too big and bulky relative to my HCC helmet that I had prior to that.

Had a Pyrotect for the last 5 years and just splurged on a Stilo...it's in the mail.

+1 for OG Racing...ask for Brian Hair.

Also actually go to try it on or be sure they'll swap it out if it produces pressure points.

Safe Racer rocks - check out the HJC line. I have had a Bell, Arai, Sparco, and HJC is by far my favorite. Check them out!

I have the Fi-10 and the Si-12, both of which I would recommend, depending on your setup.

I picked up my helmet here a few years back... they are in LI so you can actually try stuff on as well as some great advice from these guys.

I'd recommend trying them on locally. Fit is the most important.

^+1 on trying them on at a local shop.

Look for a SA2010 rated helmet.
