FIS helmet rules for Masters were changed at the recent FIS Council meeting, allowing racers to compete without FIS stickered helmets in FIS Masters competition.
With this change in the FIS rules, USSA has adjusted the requirements for USSA masters helmets so that it is the same as last season. It is recommended that Masters use helmets that meet the new FIS standards for all USSA GS, SG and DH. Helmets must bear a “CE” mark and conform to one or more of the following helmet standards: CEH.Din 1077, ASTM F2040, SNELL S98 or RS98. Helmets which meet the new FIS standard have a sticker affixed that states “Conform to FIS Specification RH 2013” affixed by the manufacturer.
To compete or to forerun in all other regular USSA races, stickered FIS helmets are required.
