Lazer helmets?

Need to get kit for basic racing in a couple of weeks.

Anyone know if these lifejackets and lazer helmets are any good/pass regs?

(rya website doesn't seem to be working, to get specifics)

http://www.vortex-racing.co.uk/catal...x.php?cPath=24

http://www.cmsexeter.co.uk/product_i...oducts_id/1573

Dont want to be spending a fortune as its our first time racing.

Also anyone know of website to get extra bits; flag, whistle etc, as in Guernsey?

Thanks

Tanya.

I sent a PM to Richard yesterday detailing the prices for the group buy we're doing. I'm getting Grabnor Jackets and Urban helmets from K4+. Combined with postage they work out cheaper than those, and IMO are better. In stock too

That's great thanks for that James!

Don't suppose you know how small the grabner jackets can be adjusted? I know they are "one size fits all" but I want it to fit properly!

Well there's no way you're smaller than my gf's mum, and she used to fit one!

Grabner would be good as it provides recovery grab points on the shoulders, the the HW has it on the back, either way better than the ones used for T/Z Cats
