Check this out – Carlos Checa’s new X-Lite X-802 lid. You’ll see it in action later this month, and you’ll be able to buy it from April.

or now, here’s what Carlos says: "I didn't just want to satisfy a whim, I really did want a helmet that said something about me and my whole life.

"This helmet has great meaning for me. I am extremely happy with the result and cannot wait to wear it at the first race".

n X-Lite spokesperson, speaking of Checa’s choice of design, added: “The animals express his love for untamed nature, for climbing, surfing and all extreme sports, whilst the continents represent the way he feels he is a 'globalised' citizen.

"A compass rose features at the very centre of the shell.”
