We are pleased to announce that Rob LeFever, from Arai Helmets has offered to hold a free helmet seminar. It will be held Race Weekend on September 29th at 7:30 to 9PM in the main conference room, off the lobby of the Holiday Inn Express in Wilmington. Rod is the head of Technical Services for Arai and brings a wealth of knowledge of years of helmet research to share with you!
Here are some points of discussion about helmets that will be covered:
Motorcycle vs. car helmets- Engineering, testing, and standards
Motorcycle standards- Snell vs. ECE vs. DOT vs. BSE vs. Sharp…
Basic structural components- Shell, liner, and chin strap
Care and feeding- Cleaning, service life, impact damage, chemical damage, storage, and paint procedures
Fitting- Size AND shape
New vs. old (and 5 year old, but never worn helmet)
Saving a few dollars on your next helmet- The right way and the wrong way
Samples: Carbon, Montoya, Burton, Hayden, Hopkins, cutaway, bare shell, and liner

We hope to see you Saturday Night!
