SA2010 Helmets?

So I'm shopping for a helmet and want to get a SA rated, but I was thinking... are they going to be coming out with SA2010 helmets in January? If so, I'll wait a few months to buy one.

I'd wait a few months and buy a SA2005 personally...the prices should drop significantly, and it'll be good for 5 years minimum.

+1 i got my sa 2000 in 05 for a substaintal discount...

...there is really no difference every 5 years. so i say - better to spend your money on replacing more frequently, (or other safety equip. hans, etc..)then buying the latest lid.

I just bought a Simpson SA2005 which is very nice, low weight and great visibility for $400. Go for it.
