Holiday-Themed Headsocks

K1 Speed's holiday headsocks: elf, snowman, santa claus, and ugly sweater themes

Headsocks are worn under race helmets to increase comfort and absorb any sweat that produced during some intense wheel-to-wheel go kart racing. So for the holidays, gift your racer with our fun take on them (they make excellent stocking stuffers)!


We’ve got four holiday themed headsocks to choose from: Snowman, Santa Claus, Elf, and Ugly Sweater. And at only $5 per headsock, you can collect all four without breaking the bank!


These items are only available IN-STORE while our limited supplies last, so make sure you stop by and grab them!


K1 RaceGear Kart Racing Shoes

Pilot 2 Kart Racing Shoes in black

A lot of racing happens with your feet in addition to the hands. Being able to have a sensitive feel in your feet is ideal for proper feathering of the throttle and gentle brake applications. For the ultimate feel and grip, check out K1 RaceGear’s Pilot 2 kart racing shoes that looks cool and performs well.

K1 RaceGear Karting Gloves

If you’ve got someone who loves karting regularly, their hands are likely taking a little abuse from gripping the steering wheel through fast corners. Do their hands a favor and get them a pair of racing gloves. Not only will they look cooler out on the track, but their hands will feel much better, allowing them to concentrate more on driving without any distractions.

It’s getting a little cold and wet out there, so make sure your racing fan has a jacket that’s up for it. Our K1 Speed Racing Jacket wouldn’t look out of place in a F1 paddock thanks to its racing team-inspired design, complete with “sponsors” on the left and right sleeves. Plus, the jacket is water-resistant to keep you dry, while the inside is lined with microfleece so you’ll stay warm.

  • Antoinette

    With the annual membership will there be discounts available for birthdays or any other special occasions. What is the age limit of anu for, minors who kart or just want to play arcade games.

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Antoinette! Yes, the annual membership gives you a free race during the week of your birthday! There’s no age limit at K1 Speed, just a height requirement of at least 4′ for the junior karts, 4’10” for the adult karts. The arcade is open to anyone and doesn’t require a certain age or the annual membership. Hope this helps!

  • Linda Wise

    My son bought a membership before the pandemic. How can I find out if it’s still valid?

      Hello, Linda! Our cashiers can pull up his account at our locations and tell you if it’s still active or not. Hope we’ll see you and your son soon!

    Interested in gifting K1 for Christmas to Friends and Family.

    • Staff Writer

      Happy to hear, Scott! Definitely look into getting one of our Gift Cards – that’s the easiest way to gift K1 Speed as a Christmas present. Happy Holidays!

  • Janet Mormino

    I’d like a little more info on the arcade games and such. How much does it cost to play one of your games, do you have air hockey and other table games, or just the racing arcade games? I’m trying to decide the best way to gift a card to my children. Can you use your card to purchase food and drinks, arcade games and does each person have to have their own card or can my daughter take my grandson racing on the same gift card? Thank you for your help.

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Janet! Thanks for your interest and your questions! We’ve sent you an email to answer all of your questions. Please check your junk/spam folder if you don’t see the message in your inbox. Thanks again!

  • J. Diane Roberts

    I’d like to buy probably 10 gift cards for various ages – all meet the height requirement. We would like to book a group race and use the gift cards. Does the purchase of the Holiday gift card deal quality for use with the group race booking?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello J.! Upon booking, you will need a credit card to make a deposit, but you can pay the remaining balance with the gift cards the day of your event. Hope this helps answer your question! See you at the track!

  • Alice Clark

    My sons family that consists of a Mon, dad and 8 yr old old would like an activity for Christmas. What do you recommend so they can ride a go kart? My grandson is about 50” tall and 55 lb

    • Staff Writer

      Hi Alice! Great question. Sounds like a gift card would work perfectly for your son’s family. Your grandson should be able to drive our Junior Karts while his parents can ride in our Adult Karts. Thanks for stopping by our site!

  • Linda Gouveia

    Trying to purchase on line , it’s for my daughter on her way there ,do I fill in her name for the purchase?

    • Staff Writer

      Hello, Linda! Great question! If you’re buying a digital gift card or online races, you use their name and email but your use your contact info (address, phone number, etc) if you prefer. Otherwise it doesn’t matter – as long as they have the email, they can redeem at the center. Doesn’t matter what name is on there. If you’re purchasing a physical gift card to be shipped, you can put their name/address for the shipping info. Hope this helps clear up any confusion!
