I cannot remember if track orgs require 3 or five years from production date. Looking to buy a second helmet.

What's the safe number of years from prod date to keep a modern helmet? Google says 3-8 years and it's a broad range.
It's manufacturer dependent. Shoeis are 7 years and that's all I know.

If the Shoei doesnt fit you well, then the Bell wont either. Their fits are nearly identical (I've gone between those two brands the past few years). AGVs dont fit my head well and neither have the new Corsair X's.

I just bought a rossi agv pista gp r for $875. My previous helmets are shoei rf1100, arai corsair v, and agv corsa. I really think the agv fits my head the best but what I really like is the wide forward view out of the pista. It comes with a hydration system but I took mine out since I can go 20 minutes on the track without drinking and I don't go on long street rides anymore. But it's a nice feature to have.
