Default Where / Who to buy a 2020 helmet

ok, its an odd question, but looking for sites/vendors to buy a helmet 2020 Spec.

Why you may be asking, I had done a pre-order with Black Armor Helmets, something went wrong. I asked them last year when the helmets would be available, said it would be a while.

So this past month, I asked again, (track days are coming) got a email/text and they refunded my money. Something about new ownership.

Went to the web site and nothing, so I have no clue, that now I need to find a helmet.

Thanks for listening -- looking for ideas....

I bought a new SA2015 last fall, it should still be valid until 2030, not that I wont replace it before then. Buying the old spec when the new spec comes out saves money and is still good for 10 -15 years with most sanctioning bodies.

I thought about that, but being this was probably my last helmet (i'm 68) I wanted a Black Armor, so just didn't work and it was too late/lazy to look for a 2015....

Sounds like a good choice. How's the fit and build quality?

I am happy with the fit and feel, which was an advantage is I went to DiscoveryParts at AMP, they were real helpful and trying it on works for me. It also has a wider/bigger eye opening, since I wear glasses and it seem helps. I tried a Bell helmet on, but preferred the GF. I had price objects on this, since I also bought a helmet for my son. For what I am going to use the helmet for, I am total happy with the quality and the weight.

Black Armor still in business? Went to their website, and there is nothing there.

yes, there is nothing there and short story of what I was told, divorce, buy out of business partners and trying to get it all started again...

Which makes it more amazing is I got my refund back .....

This is what I found on Facebook -- Black Armor Helmets

Hi guys! Quick update, the Black Armor brand has had a change of ownership, and I am working to reply to the backlog of messages and emails. It appears there are about a dozen unfulfilled orders showing pending, I am getting in touch with each person this week to see if they would like to keep the orders in place, or request a refund. Taking longer than expected, but sit tight! Thank you! - James Wilson, Founder, Black Armor
Still makes me wonder why I got a refund, oh well,

A buddy picked a well outfitted Roux at a huge discount. Trick is shopping in the fall before the new ones got released.

Thanks for the laugh this morning, but when you order a helmet like august or earlier.... well stuff happens... and on the other helmet, my son could not figure out his helmet size
