Sparco Air Pro RF-5W 1977

    SNELL SA2020

    The Sparco helmet line is a result of over 40 years of research and development experience, including wind tunnel testing. The new range was designed to meet the requirements of the new Snell SA2020 and FIA 8859-2015 ratings. The 2020 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.

    AIR PRO 1977

    The Air Pro 1977 is a painted version of the Air Pro RF-5W. This retro inspired helmet has a white base with blue or red stripes and has a clear coat painted over. The Air Pro 1977 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 1977 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 1977 has been designed to accommodate a drink tube and an intercom system. Available in white with blue or red stripes. Sizes XS to XXL (including size M/L). Air Pro 1977 has Hans clips pre-installed. SNELL SA2020 and FIA 8859-2015 approved.

    How to Measure Your Head for a Helmet

    An effective helmet is one that fits properly. Have an assistant use a dressmaker's tape or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head, starting at a point about an inch above the eyebrows and around a point in the back of the head that results in the largest measurement, finally wrapping back around to the front. It's a good idea to take a few measurements and order your helmet based on the largest.
