A New Helmet Safety Standard is Coming

Quote:
The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) is introducing a new level of safety technology. Any helmet manufacturer who sponsors a rider in MotoGP, Moto 2, or Moto 3 will have to meet the new standards or not be allowed to garb their rider.

New required helmets for F1 are upwards of $3,500! Slightly less for F2, F3.
