Will Snell 2010 be good for use in 2016.........or do we all need new helmets?

I'd like to thiiiiiiiiiink likewise...............I bought a new helmet in 2011 but it had a Snell 2005 tag and used it that year only..........then had to buy a new Snell 2010 unit for 2013 and I used it again in 2014 for 3-runs.  Maybe if I get famous I could look forward to autographing my 'old' helmets for some cash grin grin grin grin grin

The real reason I ask is to be prepared.

I guess the helmet (anything) dealers will continue to sell the old stuff first.  A handful of years ago I ordered a helmet or a tire or something online -- and got one that was "new" but manufactured 4-5 years before.  In other words -- I got one season before it was out of date.

So I learned then to specify on the order form (paper, electronic, or phone) that the item must be of recent manufacture - and then I state what date(s) I will accept.  When the critter arrives and is too old I raise a stink and they send me the one I wanted, not the one they wanted to move out of dead stock.
