To maintain our incredibly competitive prices we do not have a retail shop, but you are welcome to visit any of the track day events we run to try on helmets.

Please do contact us to ensure we take the correct helmets with us on the day at Motorsport Events Ltd on 0844 873 6075 or email us at A full list of our events can be downloaded here


Helmet Sizes & Fitting Information

To ensure you purchase the correct sized helmet, you need to measure the crown of your head. With a tape measure or piece of string, measure around your head, just above your ears in centimetres. Then refer to the information below to ensure you buy the correct helmet. Helmets should be a snug, secure fit and may be a little tighter than the worn one that you are used to. The fit of new helmets will relax a little over time.


The adults sizes for the Rapido, Rapido HANS, Xtreme II and Demon HANS correspond as below:

XS = 52-53cm
S = 54-55cm
M = 56-57cm
L = 58-59cm
XL = 60-61cm
XXL = 62-63cm


It is always best to measure your head accurately and not rely on a comparison to the size of your old helmet as different brands do vary. 95 times out of a 100 we ship the right size, but just in case you are unlucky and choose the wrong size, just ship it back to us and we will ship out a replacement free of charge.

The Junior sizes for our outstanding new Colt helmet are as below:

XS = 53-54cm
S = 55-56cm
M = 57-58cm
L = 59-60cm

Fitting your helmet (full information is provided with your helmet)


The best way is to hold the chin straps to the side and even slightly stretch the helmet as you pull it over your head. Pass the strap through the two D rings, then split the two D rings and pass the strap back through and pull it snug. This secures the helmet.

To remove the helmet pull the D ring tab outward (away from your face) and release the strap tension. Then unthread the strap through the D rings. Then simply pull the chin straps to the side and whilst pulling outwards lift the helmet from your head.

Unfortunately some accidents result in injuries that cannot be prevented by any helmet or safety clothing. Even a very low speed accident can result in an impact causing serious head injury or death. Fire retardant clothing can help reduce injuries, but not in all accidents. Please read the manual provided with your helmet to ensure proper use, fit and care of your helmet. Please note that Hedtec helmets are not motorcycle helmets and should never be used for public highway use, they are competition car or kart helmets.

(b) In addition the following are acceptable for:

Kart Drivers under 15 years of age, Cadet and

(c) For all International Events please refer to the FIA Regulations.
Kart Drivers under 15 years of age, Cadet and Bambino Drivers. The weight of the helmet may be checked at any time during an event and must not weigh more than 1,550g:
Part of the approval procedure is to affix an MSA sticker to the outside of the helmet in the approximate location of the driver’s right ear. Stickers may only be affixed by selected scrutineers, by the MSA at Motor Sports House, or by selected manufacturers, after the helmet has been checked for conformity with the standard required and is considered to be in a satisfactory condition. MSA approval stickers, for which a fee of £2.50 is  charged, are printed on foil, and once individually affixed, cannot be reapplied. Note: Stickers supplied since 01/01/08 are individually numbered. Note that helmet standards are regularly reviewed and updated, and superseded. Standards will periodically cease to be acceptable; hence an element of ‘lifing’ will always remain. Helmets approved for use in all disciplines require a blue MSA sticker to be affixed. Helmets which are accepted for use in kart racing only require a green or yellow where applicable MSA sticker to be affixed. These stickers are available from issuing scrutineers.



10.4. FHR Device
It is permitted to incorporate the use of an FIA approved FHR Device fitted in accordance with FIA regulations and the below. For MSA National Events in addition to helmets listed by the FIA as recognised for use with FHR, helmets to Snell SA2015 and Snell SAH2010 are accepted subject to the anchorage points being marked as homologated to FIA 8858-2010.
10.4.1. Part of the approval procedure is to affix an MSA sticker to the yoke of the FHR device. Stickers may only be affixed by selected scrutineers, by the MSA at Motor Sports House, or by selected manufacturers, after the FHR device has been checked for conformity with the standard required and is considered to be in a satisfactory condition. MSA approval stickers, for which a fee of £2.50 is charged, are printed on foil, and once individually affixed, cannot be reapplied. Note: Stickers are individually numbered. Where there is any doubt about the device’s fitness for its intended purpose then the Chief Scrutineer is empowered to remove the MSA Approval Sticker and impound the FHR Device for the duration of the meeting. The FHR Device may also be impounded by the Chief Scrutineer in the same cases as the helmet per 10.2.1.
