  1. Hi Guys,

    Might sound like a strange topic, but I'm looking for a cheap helmet for car use. I'm attending my first track day soon, and one requirement is that I have a AS1698 approved helmet. I have come across a KBC VR-1X helmet for $125 at a certain bike store and am wondering if this is a good helmet for the price, or if there are others I should consider. I've completed a search for this helmet on the forums, but have only come accross the vr-1, which is the superceeded model.

    A couple of other questions:
    - is a three star sharp helmet rating good?
    - the helmet weighs 1.6kgs... is this considered heavy?
