Default SA2015 helmets? (Bell)

Anyone else having issues finding 2015 helmets in stock, Bell helmets specifically (really liked my current one, planning to stay with Bell)? I made it through last season with my 2005, but not only is it old now, it's also pretty nasty. I'm guessing most, if not all organizations, are going to require newer certs. Last summer I looked for a new one but it seemed the SA2015's were just rolling out on to the market and pretty limited, so I held off.
I did some quick looking today (og racing and winding road) and most are still marked as backordered. I should have time to make some calls tomorrow, just curious is anyone else has run into this issue?

I don't know the exact cause but I know many manufactures are having issues with the roll out. Not brand unique either; seems to be the same issue for everyone. Was at a store two weeks ago week looking at new helmets and the guy mentioned they are getting 6-8/week.

Stable energies? I was there a few weeks ago and they seemed well stocked at the time.

Yup, was speaking with Bob. Didn't have a single Bell in my size; only thing they had was a Stilo and my buddy grabbed the only XL they had.

I got an SA2015 Racequip pro. Fits like a Bell.

If you really want a Bell, check out Pegasus Auto Racing. They had some stock 3 weeks ago when I visited their warehouse.

Ok, at least it's not just me. Looks like I have to get lucky or just order one and wait.

I was told bell was switching warehouses (this was back in feb) and that people were given long lead times for helmets. I got lucky and got my bell vador within a week from my shop.

I was in same situation as OP, needing to replace my SA2005 Bell M4 that I really liked. After months of watching websites I was able to get a Bell M8 (replaced M4) from OG Racing in a size medium which was hard to find at most vendors. It took awhile but finally found one.

Crazy. I must've been there the day they got stock or something because there seemed to be stacks on stacks of new helmets that just came in.
