    Was wondering what helmets now are snell 2010. My club I race with will require it next year. I currently have an arai corsair v and I love it but its only snell 2005. Do the newer arai corsair v have a snell 2010 rating

    Yes the newer Corsair-V's Graphics are a all M2010, along with the entire Arai line up. Just make sure when you purchase your new helmet, you ask your dealer to request a M2010 from their distributor. Snell 2010 helmets are easily identified, because the Snell serial number will start with a "MR".

    I thought most clubs went by manufacturer date and not Snell series... The arai rep told me there were no differences between the M2005 and M2010 Corsair V's...

    The Bell Star helmets are also Snell 2010.

    Yeah but I am wondering the chances that a dealer would have a new arai snell 2010 corsair v because they are probably trying to get rid of their older corsair v

    If that is true, that could possibly prove that the higher end helmets MAY be in fact safer.

    So are you saying the Bell M2005 Snell models will be the same, and pass the M2010 standards? As Ralph said above for the Arais?
