This is the Carlos Checa World Superbike replica helmet in the high-end X-Lite X802-RR range. This is the helmet that Checa wore when he won the World Superbike Championship in 2011 and it is a beautiful looking lid.
The helmet design features a stunning blue base with a white map of the world painted over it. A compass is positioned at the top of the helmet. The rear of the helmet also features a small version of Checa’s ‘Spanish Bull’ cartoon motif.
The map design was used to reflect the fact that World Superbikes takes place all over the globe and that Carlos Checa sees himself as a ‘World Citizen’.
Talking about his helmet design Checa said:
“I didn’t just want to satisfy a whim, I really did want a helmet that said something about me and my whole life. This helmet has great meaning for me. I am extremely happy with the result and cannot wait to wear it at the first race“
This is easily our favorite Carlos Checa helmet design.
Here is a video montage of Carlos Checa taking the 2011 WSBK Championship wearing this helmet:
OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: X-Lite X-802RR Replica – Carlos Checa
The X-802RR is the racing composite fibre helmet from the Nolan group, developed in three outer shell sizes. This design represents the culmination of years of experience in the top levels of motorcycle racing competitions. Each component (shell, visor, Racing Experience comfort, Racing Air Flow/ RAF ventilation system) is the result of innovative development, aimed at providing a product with constant quality and perfect performance. Each component was developed using experimental testing schemes within the MotoGP and SBK World Championships: Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Carlos Checa, Marco Melandri, Danny Kent and other riders sponsored by the X-Lite have tested and experimented many of the innovative technical solutions found on this helmet which is available for serious and demanding riders.
Excellent comfort is provided thanks to the new removable and washable inner padding (Carbon Fitting), made from activated carbon fibres. The activated carbon is temperature-regulating (it encourages sweat evaporation while maintaining a constant temperature), anti static (helps to control static electricity), bacteriostatic (it respects the skin and protects it from pollutants) and is 100% natural. The X-802RR is equipped with a DD-ring retention system. Available in XS-2XL across three shell sizes. All models come with Pinlock included.
