Full and Open Face Carbon Fibre Helmets at much reduced prices - Fully SAH2010 and FIA 8858-2010 compliant
The Black Cat Carbon Fibre "Race" FIA 8858-2010 SAH 2010 Full Face helmet is a brand new 2013 model, manufactured to meet the latest FIA and Snell certifications. It features the very latest in helmet safety and is the very best value carbon fibre full face helmet you can buy.
The ratings this helmet carries mean that is is certified to the most current and very highest levels and short of F1, then this is the only open faced helmet you will ever need. Each helmet comes with a pair of individually numbered Snell and FIA approval stickers so you can be assured of its veracity and pedigree.
The multi layered carbon fibre weave is gloss finished, with a rubberised aperture edge for additional longevity and wear resistance and removable, washable liners mean this helmet will outlast other helmets without these features.
The aerodynamic form, with specially placed static and dynamic vents for maximum airflow, keeps you cooler and stops the build up of hotspots inside the helmet when you are working hard. The visor tear off screws are large and simple to use for gloved fingers to feel easily
The removable liners have another advantage - you can add your "pits to car" intercom without tearing the inside of your helmet apart and creating uncomfortable raised areas - the mark of a well thought out design.
The FIA 8858-2010 standard is for Frontal Head Restraints (FHR) fixings (used to be just HANS devices, this standard opens up the market to other manufacturers and types of system) - these fixings are an M6 female threaded terminal that is sealed into the helmets at manufacture, allowing the driver to anchor any approved system to the helmet without the need to change the helmet attachments.
The series you are competing in today may not mandate the use of FHR but, sooner or later, they will - this helmet allows you to have th best now and as soon as you want, or have to, use FHR you can make your choice without needing to invest in another helmet. The threads are plugged and do not come with any external attachments but Black Cat can supply FIA 8858-2010 rated posts at the same time as you purchase your helmet.
