Lovingly handcrafted in Argentina El Chico is a faithful replica of the helmet that accompanied Sir Stirling Moss to his greatest victories. It is named after the nickname that Juan-Manuel Fangio affectionately gave his younger rival and protege.
The helmet shell is built from a base molded from resin and fibers while its inside is lined with natural cork of 3 mm (0.11 in) thickness. All straps are crafted from the finest real cow leather while the padding and covers are stitched from 100% cotton.
This beautiful piece is sure to attract a lot of attention with its gorgeous patina and is crafted to the highest standard. It arrives nicely packed in a linen bag that you can use whenever taking the helmet to a track day or an event.
El Chico comes in 3 sizes (thanks to an easy to install foam adjustment ring) that accommodates head sizes from 56 to 64 cm (22 to 25.5′) and is delivered by courier within 7 days of its order.
The customization options we offer relate to the nationality of the racer you want to honor, with (in addition to a vintage Suixtil flag in the back of the head, right over the goggle strap holder) the following vintage flag options available either as a shield or a rectangular shape:
The flags are crafted from purpose-made water-based decals, carefully applied to your helmet so that they’ll show your (true) colors for a long time to come, or, rather, as we like to call it here – at life speed!
