NEW For 2017!
The new Air Pro RF5W was designed to meet the requirements of the new
FIA 8859-2015 and New Snell SA2015 ratings. The 2015 type-approval introduces new impact requirements, the helmets need to dissipate large amounts of energy in different ways. To meet these requirements Sparco is introducing new innovations for driver safety and comfort. All shells now have layers of carbon-Kevlar for greater strength. The helmets have also been wind-tunnel tested to maximize exterior vent placement and flow. The EPS interiors and padding have also been redesigned for increased airflow and driver comfort.
Sparco also introduces a new size: Medium/Large. This M/L size takes advantage of using the smaller shell which is lighter and more compact.
The Air Pro RF-5W features a carbon-Kevlar/fiberglass construction. It includes a wider eye opening that can be used for open wheel or closed cockpit driving. Multiple exterior vents increase circulation to a redesigned interior. The interior has channels which not only cool the driver, but has additional channels which route air towards the visor, which reduces the chance of visor fogging. Air Pro RF-5W has removable, washable padding that can be repositioned for a comfortable fit. All interior seams have been removed from areas where greater pressure is exerted on the head. The Air Pro RF-5W has been designed to accommodate a drink tube and an intercom system. Available in white or flat black, sizes XS to XXL (new size M/L). Air Pro RF-5W has Hans clips pre-installed. FIA 8859-2015 and Snell SA2015 approved.
