I don't. Only experience I've had damaging a radiator was when I hit an uprooted tree and bent the radiator back. A brace holding the radiator in place would have destroyed the radiator. I was able to bend it back and finish the day. Never needed to ... more »

Added reply in a thread The old school wall turn at High Point 6/22/2021 11:06 AM

Definitely looks cool but I see a major safety issue. High-siding and smacking a helmet against a wall is not worth trying to look like Bradshaw. Rigid structures don't belong on the outside of a turn. Flat track has hay bales, road racing has air fences, ... more »

Some noise control advice: 1. Put the track as far away from residential property lines as possible. When neighbors complain and measure noise levels, they will measure at their fence line. 2. Prepare a sound study in advance with calculated noise levels ... more »

^This. Zoning and land use are absolutely critical. Areas zoned agricultural or industrial can often produce multiple times the noise of residential zones. How the laws are written is also critical. Understanding both is the first step. Building residential ... more »

Looks like you are going about this the right way. "A few very vocal people opposing it" can easily crush it though. I'm an acoustical engineer. I don't know if you have other challenges (dust, etc.) but I think your logic is great. I recommend researching ... more »

Oklahoma Motorsports Park in Norman is just outside town but close to everything. And as Hammer663s mentioned: PIR is a great example, near a road course, airport, and industrial area. 408 MX was in the fairgrounds in San Jose (fairgrounds group kicked ... more »

ECE 22.06 was published in September 2019, and voted to become law in the EU in March 2020 (effective 2023, now delayed to 2024). I have no idea how quickly a helmet can be designed, manufactured, and certified, but Leatt certified over 8 months ago. ... more »

Show me the data. If a helmet meets the new ECE 22.06 certification with the "low speed" impact requirement, I'll consider it. As of today, these Koroyd helmets don't. Helmets will change in response to the new standard. One helmet manufacturer has 3 ... more »

This. "Round oval" is the language helmet manufacturers use. I don't know of any current MX models that have this shape. Asian brands might be more rounded than others (HJC, Arai). But he'll still have to try them on. Bolstering the comfort lining by ... more »

I look for the certifications first. Several manufacturers are marketing their helmets as safer without the test certifications. There are only a few helmets currently certified to the new ECE 22.06 standard, with a "low speed" impact performance requirement. ... more »

There can be multiple variations that are all Snell certified. I can't explain the weight difference between euro and US models (DOT vs ECE? Difference in how weight is reported with sizing?) but Snell certified models cannot change. If they do, there ... more »

They would be a different model. Snell pulls random helmets from the manufacturer to test.

FYI not just USA - once a helmet is Snell certified it's for the model worldwide. Easily checked on the Snell list: https://smf.org/certlist/std_M2020D.php

All we need to see is the impact certifications. The other safety information is nice, but ultimately marketing without the test data and medical direction behind the test data. Unfortunately the paid reviews don't even ask the question. We're not getting ... more »

Thanks for the answer. I don't understand why they did not get it certified to ECE 22.06 if it's built to pass it. Leatt had helmets available with the 22.06 certification in September - 8 months ago. Either it's certified or it's not.

Does your Moto 10 have the ECE 22.06 sticker? I haven't seen anything in any paid reviews or anything on Bell's website about it being certified to 22.06. Stating ECE certification will be legal in the EU until 2024 (with 22.05). You would think the ... more »

Where is that stated? All I see on the Airoh website is a generic statement for ECE 22.05/22.06 for all helmets. I didn't see anything in the downloads either. Claiming ECE certification with only the 22.05 version will be legal until 2024. Edit: I see ... more »
