You may have seen a few posts over the past few months. I’ve built my lady a hillshooter/drag bike. She is pretty new to drag racing and will be on a 95hp 270lb raptor. I’m nervous to say the least. With your recommendations along with the racers I know, we ended up getting her a leat gpx 5.5 neck brace.
Now we need a good helmet to go along with it.

Anyone have any experience with helmets that fit well with this brace?
Will be looking more for a street bike style than motocross.

I dont have any experience with neck braces, but AGV, and ARAI make some reallly good street helmets. My best advice is to get one that fits her head well. I know that sounds obvious, but i dont mean size, i mean shape. People have different shaped heads so a helmet that fits me great might not fit you well even if our heads were the same size in cm. And so, different helmets have different shapes too, even within the same brand. From round shape, to long oval with some in between.

Maybe everyone knows this already, but i didnt when i bought my first couple of street helmets
