Suixtil El Dandy Helmet
Handcrafted in Argentina the Suixtil El Dandy replica helmet is an hommage to one Suixtil's most colourful heroes; Carlos (Charly) Menditeguy. A fearless Argentinean racer, as comfortable flying the Suixtil Coup at these terrifying TC races as he was behind the wheel of a sedated Ferrari for a “regular” GP. And, always always elegant and stylish to a fault and ever the gentleman – hence the nickname associated with his helmet.
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 cow leather while the padding and covers are stitched from 100% cotton. The black outer leather smartly contrasts with the inner one and the comfort bands that Charly favoured (clearly more for the looks than any pretended safety, as with most helmets from the time).
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. Ideal for open top driving or historic events.
El Dandy 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.
The helmet is delivered direct from Suixtil by courier please allow 7-10 days for delivery.
