Handcrafted with care in Argentina, the Albion Champ is a tribute to those British Racing Green machines and the champions who rode them, hard during the GPs of the ’50s and early ’60s. The Albion Champ, proud of its origins and sources, sports the Union Jack on the (of course) right side (but can be customized if you so wish – check the great range of options). It is finished with a combination of leather inside the head-well and cotton ear-protectors, woven in a gorgeous red Tartan that beautifully contrasts with the helmet shell. It is also adorned with a non-removable, leather-lined short visor that further heightens the contrast with the helmet color.
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 full-grain cow leather while the padding and covers are stitched from 100% cotton highly original 100% cotton tartan lining. It should be noted that, in keeping with the original, the fixed visor of this model is shorter than usual and therefore NOT suitable to affix the Guard visor. We recommend, instead the use of our BelleVue goggles, or, alternatively, our BelleVue 50s, also perfectly adjusted to the model and of the utmost comfort.
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.
The Albion Champ 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.
