Helmet Question/MSF

I am planning to take a MSF class this summer at Awesome Cycles - I would assume that I would need to get my own helmet before taking the class. So with this being said, where in Houston would have a good/large selection of helmets that I can look into. (I need to be able to evaluate the helmets since I have cochlear implants) *which helps me to hear* and need to ensure that the helmets fit well on my head. So any feedbacks would be appreciated.

Thank you!

When i went, Awesome cycles had plenty of open face helmets on site (kuykendahl) you could borrow for the day, they even had gardening gloves to loan out
Just give them a call and see what they recommend.

Riding out on the street is a little different than taking MSF. You'll get instruction all day from the instructors, and expected to follow what they're telling you. You'll likely need to know what they're saying. But it's likely they've dealt with other students with no/limited hearing before, so I'm sure y'all will work something out.

Best of luck with the course!

With this being said - looking at my schedule I could take a class on July 12/13th but Im thinking HEAT - how long do we stay outside for a 2 day class? Because looking at the it - it requires us to have a longsleeve shirt, jeans, boots, gloves. And around mid-July temps tend to hit around mid-high 90's Has anyone taken a class in July in the past and thoughts?

I know in my class we where inside for about 3 hours then outside for most of the day untill the end of the day. Also a white long sleeve is actually cooler than short sleeve. Direct sun light will heat you up faster.

***** Warning: Heat Advisory *****
Please note that during the summer months (June-Sept), the 2-Day Weekend Course is out on the range during the hottest part of the day. If you are not VERY comfortable working outside during this time, we suggest enrolling for the Weekday Course (better) or the 3-Day Weekend Course (best). Please understand that as awesome as we are, we cannot control the weather. :-)


We didn't put that on the website because we were sitting around bored.
