Purchased a new GF RIFT for $83 + a smoked shield over the weekend. Gonna get it stickered up soon. Currently looking for “BMW Motorsport” visor strips.

I don’t expect the helmet to come in. I ordered on 9/22, and still no updates from Saferacer lol.

I ordered a set of three visor strips from Russia. Two “BMW Motorsport” and one of the new “///M Motorsport” strips. I’ll report back once I receive and assess quality.

Both the helmet and visor strips arrived. They’re not high gloss as I was thinking. Appears to be a double layer strip—base sticker layer with print and a grainy, matte laminated layer. Tried to capture the grainy finish in the last two photos. Looks sharp overall and can’t really tell it’s grainy from 6-12” away. At $15 for a set of three, I’m happy.

Before I got any stickers:

How do you like that G-Force CF helmet?

My first helmet was a G-Force crappy $200 helmet when I needed one for my first track day. It is a 2010 model which I believe will go out of use in 2020 in many track day series.

I have been eyeing up a Sparco carbon helmet now that I am series in the car world pretend to know what I am doing, but they are like $750-1000 if I remember correctly.

I got it at Winding Road after trying on many helmets. For me, it was the most comfortable. It's my understanding that the G Force helmet's quality has gone up over the years. I examined the helmet and it seemed to be of high quality, so I got it. Honestly, I wanted something cheaper since it's my first, but it was too comfortable to pass up. There are certainly more expensive and nicer looking helmets, but this fit the bill.
