For 2017 Sparco introduces an all-new range of helmets. The new 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 FIA 8859-2015 and New Snell SA2015 ratings. The 2015 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.
The Sky RF-7W has a carbon fiber outer shell reinforced with layers of carbon-Kevlar. 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. Sky RF-7W 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 Sky RF-7W has been designed to accommodate a drink tube and an intercom system. Available in sizes XS to XL (new size M/L). Sky RF-7W has Hans clips pre-installed. FIA 8859-2015 and Snell SA2015 approved.
