Hi, I just purchased a new Arai helmet manufacture date 02/19, Snell sticker 2015. Will this helmet pass tech? Please advise. Also, is there a specific colour medical data carrier required for this year?
Yes I believe this helmet should pass. Every year we will be changing the color of the Medical Data Carrier to make it easy to identify a current MDC. We will have a bunch of them ready for purchase or pick up at race school and round 1.
Snell 2015 is the latest snell standard, which passes.
02/19 is less that 5 years old, which also passes.
We rotate colors yearly, to provide and easy check if the MDC has been replaced. Last year was black, this year, black lettering MDCs will not be allowed. The color we are using for this race season will be available for purchase round 1.
