Are there any changes to Club racing safety requirements for this year ?
I'm asking because Jim's Bieffe helmet needs a new visor(safety shield).
I understand that :
1) Bieffe is no longer in business and/or have been bought out by someone.
2) Safety shields are not readily available
3) Jims helmet meets Snell 95 but not 2000 requirements (hence the leading question). Understand that SKA is requiring 2000 rating this season.
So I'm looking for anwers to :
1) Does Jim need a new helmet ?
2) If not, do you have any Bieffe Safety shields that will fit his helmet in inventory ? If answers is No, then by default the answer to 1 is Yes (Snidely Wiplash !).

Thanks !

MRP does not enforce such a rule as it is the customers decisions. Since I don't know which model of Bieffe you have I can't answer the question about the shield. We do have a stack of left over Bieffe shields in the Three Oaks store. And at a worst case the new helmet line Zamp that is in stock is priced at $149 for the 2000 snell ranking. I assume the SKA means WKA which if you run South Bend or any Great Lakes events you will be required to have the new ranking. We'll try to assist where we can. Garry

Thanks Garry !
Yes, I meant WKA, S being in the same keyboard proximity. Sorry about that.

I'll stop by, with the helmet, to see what you may have that might work.

a stack of visors has been recovered. Not sure which one it is at this moment but they are at the Three Oaks shop. Gary
