This is a blast from the past, this is a replica of the 2008/2009 Carlos Checa helmet that he wore in World Superbikes when he was racing for the Hannspree Ten Kate Honda team.
It is released in the X-Lite X802 range, which to be honest is pretty hard to get hold of now as it has since been replaced by newer models. You can check the links at the bottom of the page if you still fancy your luck at getting one of the remaining units – there are big discounts on them if you find them in stock.
The helmet is a striking black, yellow, and red colourway full of flame patterns and a cartoon bull on either side. The rear of the helmet also features a cartoon bull and a red star.
Description of the Carlos Checa X802 WSBK helmet:
The X-802 is the racing helmet at the top of the X-lite product range for 2009. The design represents the culmination of years of experience in the top levels of motorcycle racing competitions. Each component (shell, visor, liner, and ventilation system) is the product of innovative development, aimed at providing a product with constant quality and perfect performance.
Each part of the X-Lite X802 was carefully designed considering top performance and developed along an experimental and test scheme in the MotoGP.
An innovative aerodynamic adjustable rear spoiler is integrated in the shell of the X-Lite X-802. The product of experience and testing in the wind tunnel and on track, the new spoiler optimizes the helmet’s aerodynamics, stabilizing it at high speeds, and assists the extraction of hot air from the interior through outlet vents integrated directly in the spoiler.
