How long have you been using that beaten-up racing helmet with the worn-out liner? While you've been out racing, helmet technology has been improving, and maybe it's time you took a look at what's available. G-Force Racing Gear's new GF950 full-face helmet is SA95 rated for safety and provides the high-end features you require at a moderate price (MSRP is $335.99, but expect to pay around $240 from competitive retailers)
G-Force uses proprietary fiberglass resins to form the helmet's lightweight shell. The fire-retardant PBI liner is hypoallergenic, so it will not irritate your skin and is removable for easy cleaning or replacement.
Replacement, you say? Yes, G-Force designers have thought far enough ahead to realize that liners often wear out (or, more likely, grunge out) long before the shell and will sell you a replacement liner instead of requiring you to buy a new helmet. A removable breath deflector completes the interior package at no extra charge.
The helmet's ventilation system is something you're sure to appreciate on summer nights. Vents provide fresh air to the chin, forehead, and back of the head. All the vents are adjustable, allowing maximum flow on hot days and little or no flow on cooler days or in dusty races on dirt tracks.
Finally, G-Force helmets offer a feature you're sure to appreciate: a molded face shield that provides a sharper view of what's happening around you. Instead of being stamped out from a sheet of clear plastic and formed into shape in an oven, the face shield is created in a polished mold. The provides an optically better face shield free from irregularities that can obscure your vision-a vital quality when you're trying to squeeze between the wall and the guy you're trying to pass for first.
