No matter the type of kart racing you're doing a karting helmet is essential! We are happy to help you make sense of all of the safety ratings and styles to choose from.`

Most kart racing organizations require a karting helmet meeting the SFI 24.1 or Snell M2020, K2020, SA2020, or CMR2016 standards. Generally, any helmet with a Snell or SFI Rating is a good place to start looking for a karting helmet- searching across all of the ratings will give you the widest selection of^ helmets to choose from.

For children, we recommend a Youth Specific karting helmet as these use a much smaller and lighter outer shell that is easier for younger racers to manage while cornering at speed.

If you are looking for a helmet for home go-kart use or indoor karting, you may opt for a cheaper DOT Certified helmet. Helmets with only a DOT rating are not usually accepted for other types of kart racing though.
