    Just got a Bell Sport III. Eye port not as wide...

    ... as Bell M2 but I have no problem getting glasses on with helmet on. Picked it up for $270 from CV Products.

    Choosing a Helmet

    I'm cheap, but willing to give up my M2000 for something that won't melt to my face in a fire. I'd like something useful both for sedan racing and open-wheelers (ie Skip Barber).
    (As background, I wear glasses, like peripheral vision, and drive in the summer in Texas, so a wide eyeport and ventilation are priorities.)

    The helmets I'm looking at are (prices from fasthelmets.com):
    Simpson Super Voyager ($370)
    Bell M2 ($300)
    Arai GP-5k ($700)
    OMP Wide-Eye Formula ($580)
    G-Force Pro Force 1 ($280)
    Bieffe [Oops!] ($380)

    I can't find jack about how much all these weigh or even if they have removeable liners, so any comments anyone has about them would be much appreciated. Aside from the G-Force and Simpson, I can't tell if any of these could be used with any kind of head restraint system or not, although I'd probably just rely on a neck roll until I actually did some racing anyway (just doing DEs now).

    Thanks all!
