To add to Bill’s statement, I’ve seen differing opinions on whether a $90 helmet can be as safe as a $300/500/700/900/etc. helmet.  Let’s just say that fit is critical with any helmet.  But…

If you’re having that much neck fatigue, I’m going to guess the $90 helmet is probably making it worse… most $90 helmets that I’ve tried weigh “significantly” more than the more expensive helmets… where “significantly” means enough to be the difference between struggling to hold your head up and driving comfortably throughout an entire race.

I know a helmet is a helmet and a suit is a suit, but if a less expensive helmet or suit is causing excess fatigue, I question how safe that really is.
