Handcrafted with care in Argentina The Winner is both a testament to some of the greatest Suixtil heroes (starting, of course, with Jean Behra and Cesare Perdisa – but do you know of any others who sported this amazing design? – let us know) and an hommage to racing itself as what could better represent our passion than the checkered flag motive.
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. It should be noted that, in keeping with the original, the visor of this model is slightly shorter than usual and therefore NOT suitable to affix the Guard visor. We recommend, instead and as demonstrated on several of the photos, the use of our BelleVue goggles, 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 Winner 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.
And because, while Jean was undoubtedly French from (helmeted) head to toes , we want to offer you the option to make The Winner truly yours by selecting the shield that best suits your situation or inclination: at present, the customization options we offer relate to the nationality of the racer you want to honor (including, of course, yourself), with (in addition to a vintage Suixtil flag in the back of the head, right over the goggle strap holder) the following vintage shield options :
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!
