Italian Superbike and World Superbike legend Fabrizio Pirovano sadly passed away in 2016 after losing his fight with cancer. X-lite have released a number of Pirovano helmets which serve as a nice tribute to this popular and much loved racer.
This is the Pirovano replica in the X-Lite X-802R range (it is also available in the higher priced X-Lite X-802RR range also). The design features Pirovano’s classic red, white, green Italian colour scheme. The rear features a cartoon version of Fabrizio Pirovano pulling a wheelie.
The X-802R is the racing composite fibre helmet of Nolan group. This 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 was carefully designed considering top performance and developed along an experimental and test scheme in the MotoGP and SBK. Many famous riders have ridden, or currently ride with X-Lite/Nolan helmets including, Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Carlos Checa, Marco Melandri, Chaz Davies and many more. These riders tested and experimented with many of the innovative technical solutions found on this helmet which is now available for the most serious and demanding riders.

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.
