This is the X-Lite Fabrizio Pirovano helmet that is available in the X-802 R range. There are a few Pirovano helmet replicas on the market which act as a nice tribute to the popular Italian racer who sadly passed away in 2016.
This helmet design is a proud tribute to Italy and the design has been created using the Italian tricolour of red, green, and white. The left side of the helmet is red with the outlines of stars in black printed on the sides, while the right-hand side replicates the design in green. A white stripe runs through the middle from the chin of the helmet all the way to the rear giving the impression of the Italian flag when the helmet is viewed from the front. The rear also features Fabrizio Pirovano’s cartoon motorcycle logo.
A beautiful and patriotic lid.
Fabrizio Pirovano was one of the first ever entrants in the World Superbikes Championship when it started back in 1988. He was a regular Top 5 finisher and even claimed 2nd place in the overall championship twice. He sadly passed away from cancer in June 2016.

Here is the into video to the X-lite X-802 R range showing some of the features, as well as many of the riders who choose to race with the helmet:
For a pretty affordable helmet, there is a lot to get excited about with the X-Lite 802-R – the shell has an aggressive shape, and the spoiler on the rear is fully adjustable. The helmet itself feels surprisingly light with a very comfortable and snug inner lining that gives a feeling of safety, without making you feel claustrophobic or restricting your vision.
Visor removal is simple, you simply lift it up and hit the release button and it springs off – easy.
Ventilation is another notable asset with four simple vents towards the front pulling fresh air in, and four extract vents on the rear under the visor to remove hot air and increase airflow.
All in all this is a decent helmet with a nice looking design, made all the more bittersweet due to Pirovano’s passing.
