X-lite har kommet med ny hjelm som er ”født for racing”. Designet på de er tiltenkt Stoner og Lorenzo.

Her er den engelske pressemeldingen fra X-lite:

The revving of engines, mad skids, noisy tumult and crazy speeds: these are the elements that blend together to make a race round the track an absolute must for all sports bike lovers. And to enjoy all the excitement in absolute comfort and safety, X-lite has designed X-802, the top quality helmet that exudes racing spirit.

This new design represents the culmination of years of experience in the top levels of motorcycle racing competitions and each component (shell, visor, liner and ventilation system) was carefully designed considering top performance and developed along an experimental and test scheme in the MotoGP.

Already at the beginning of the 2008 motorcycle racing season, Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, and other riders sponsored by Nolan Group, tested and experimented many of the innovative technical solutions found on this helmet.

Like many of the X-lite products, X-802 benefits from the advantages that come from using three different measurements of outer shell for the six available helmet sizes (XS/S, M/L, XL/XXL). This way, the helmets weight and volume (and hence its aerodynamic resistance) are kept to a minimum, proportionate to the riders size.

An innovative aerodynamic adjustable rear spoiler is integrated in the shell. The product of experience and testing in the wind tunnel and on track, the new spoiler optimizes the helmets aerodynamics, stabilizing it at high speeds, and assists the extraction of hot air from the interior through outlet vents integrated directly in the spoiler. Its profile, and thus its aerodynamics, can be adjusted to one of the two available configurations to better suit riders different positions and styles.

The visor of the X-802 is completely new and offers an impressively wide field of vision and an excellent rotation mechanism, which benefits all movements for opening, closing and application of the Nolan Top Fog Resistant system (the standard inner visor with a fog-resistant silicone-sealed profile).

And to better suit racing requirements, the visor is available as an accessory, also in its flat version, ready for the use of external tear-offs. The Double Action device, the rotating mechanism fitted to all full-face helmets for years now X-lite, blocks the visor, preventing accidental unfastening at high speeds, and helping defog at low speeds and at rest.

The UNITHERM fabric used to make the padding of the X-802 is the top in comfort. It is the most up-to-date elasticized microfiber that actively regulates breathability by rapidly dispersing perspiration. The removable cheek pads offer the greatly appreciated STEADYFIT, essential to maintaining the helmet steady at high speeds thanks to its triple differentiated density configuration, which provides excellent comfort even under conditions of substantial cheek pressure.
