    Default Bell M-4 Helmet -- thoughts

    I would like to get a helmet with SA2010 rating for my passengers at track days, mainly because of the fireproof liner. I have a line on a new Bell M-4, size L, at a good price, and I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience or thoughts about this helmet?

    Dont think you can go wrong with bell products. The fire rating doesnt mean much unless they are wearing a full fire suit in the first place though.

    As long as the flames don't harm their face, I'm good. ;-)

    I read a couple of reviews, but I guess other than weight and fit there's not much to say...

    Personally I'd probably buy flameproof boxers first, protect the money maker you know...

    Can't imagine your car catching fire like that. I've never seen a car catch fire at the track yet. I'm sure it happens but more likely to race car. Others will correct me if I'm wrong

    Pretty mercenary! ;-)
    Actually, I'm not worried too much about a fire to be honest, but I have noticed that my helmeted head does not fit through my window. Stupid slit trench windows. Fashionable, yes. Smart, nein.
