The SA2015 helmets are starting to show up as available/available soon. When will VRG be requiring them? Is a 2010 model still good for 10-11 years?

We recently re-worded the VRG rule to make it more clear, it now says "3.1.1. Helmet: Must meet Snell “SA” specification, of no more than eleven years prior ... "

So an SA2010 will be good through the year 2021 ... an SA2005 will expire at the end of next year, 2016. We did it this way because the Snell Foundation/SFI is notorious for releasing the spec rather late, and then the helmet manufacturers have to clear their old stock and start manufacturing & testing to the new spec, so "new" helmets usually don't appear on the market until the fall -- like this year. So our rule gives people a full year after the new helmets come out, to replace their old helmet. (although if you have a 2005, there's no real reason to wait, once the 2015's are out you may as well buy one right away).
