I could be wrong because it’s been years since I was a tech inspector or even had a current rule book, but I remember something along the lines of if your door car runs in the nines a full face helmet was required.

American companies hiring chinese people instead of American people to produce the same product, with higher profit margins.

Ross Perot was right.

More Truth to despise for Americans / (the woke people) who can't handle the Truth.

Where are NASCAR Cup and Formula 1 helmets made? Where are Sparco driving suits made? Those series actually have requirements beyond a sticker on the back.

How do you think the United States American companies hiring chinese workers instead of American to manufacture their products, would answer that question?

That's all it is, USA American companies hiring mexicans and chinese to manufacture the same products, instead of Americans.

You deserve what you tolerate.

Tolerance is a liberal quality.

I don't have issues with German or Spain or such, but I do have issues with a China helmet. Some don't, great.. I went out of my way to buy USA made safety equipment.

Wasn't the Holy Grail of racing helmets from Simpson made in China for a long time? Maybe they still are?
I personally like the fit and finish of Italian helmets.

I’ve been an advocate for purchasing the helmet that fits your head properly. I don’t believe you can do this without trying on various manufactures models.

Mine is same brand and model since 1983 from Japan. The fit has been the exact same for 39 years and the features and refinements have been very noticeable with every new Snell date rating.

My son's latest helmet is a Bell Carbon RS7 with HP7 spoiler, also made in Bahrain and with it's Todd's Extreme paint, might be the most expensive helmet in all of bracket racing. Holy Moly
