newenough.com, or something like that, ususally gets in some really good closeout deals. You can sign up for email notifications (they won't spam you).
How does a helmet have an expiration date? You mean expires into "closeout"?
NewEnough.com has changed, they are now MotorcycleGear.com. They wanted to avoid misleading consumers into thinking they only sold used gear.

Helmet manufacturers recommend replacing your helmet after a few years, even if it's never been used. Part of it has to do with the integrity of the materials, such as adhesives used to join parts together... and part of the reason is to avoid any potential liability. A Shoei rep from another forum said:

"We suggest that our helmets be replaced 5 years from purchase date or 7 years from manufacture date, whichever comes first. We also cover our helmets for the entire lifespan of the helmet (5 years from purchase date or 7 years from manufacture date) with a full warranty against manufacturing defects. If you are unsure that your helmet is still safe to be worn, do to exposure to chemicals, extreme heat, impact damage, etc, you can send in your Shoei helmet to us for a free inspection. Once we receive the inspection it takes 1-3 business days to complete the inspection. Upon completion, we return the helmet to you UPS Ground with a letter stating the results of our inspection. The inspection and return shipping are free."
