Planning on 4-6 track events annually, if that helps. Thanks!
If this is your first helmet I highly recommend finding somewhere you can try one on or a vendor with a good return policy on trying multiple options. Each helmet manufacturer has a slightly different head profile shape. I've had Bell, Arai, and Stilo. For me the Arai and Stilo fit the best and the Bell while OK, it wasn't the best fit for my head shape. Also, always opt for the lightest weight possible in your price range.
