The X-Lite X-802RR Ultra Carbon is the ultimate expression of sportiness of the Italian brand X-Lite, that belongs to the Nolan group. This helmet is the result of developments in racing seen before in the X-802, X-802R and X-802RR helmets, used by riders like Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner, Carlos Checa, and more recently, Danny Kent; all proclaimed world champions.
The shell of the X-802RR Carbon Ultra is made, as its name suggests, with a carbon fiber compound. This material ensures maximum resistance to any impacts, and is also very light. X-Lite has three different shell sizes, so there are plenty of scope to find what best suits you.
In fact, one of the most positive aspects of the introduction of this new fiber in the shell is the reduction of the overall weight. The X-802RR Ultra Carbon shows 1,240 grams on the scale for a M size, representing a reduction of between 80 and 100 grams over its predecessor, the X-802RR. Additionally, it also features a very good load balance, so that it shows very light once set.
The ventilation in the X-802RR Ultra Carbon is designed under the RAF (Racing Air Flow) concept, which creates a specific air ducting that proves more efficient for sporty driving experiences as evidence of the brand’s experience at racing.
Thus at the top we find three entries: a large central and two lateral closures ‘on / off’ type. Just looking at the aerodynamic shape of the shell we can imagine the air flow traveling andfinding its way out of the back, in the center of the spoiler.
The X-802RR Ultra Carbon also features an air channeler in the chin designed to improve aerodynamics, by letting air in and reducing friction.
The screen of the X-Lite X-802RR Ultra Carbon is made from Lexan material, which has anti-scratching properties. It’s also Pinlock-ready, the best anti-fog system on the market. It features a clear, wide view, one of the best in the market’s racing helmets segment.
The edges of the screen are topped by a rubber crown that improves the sealing and prevents the entry of air, water or noise.
Inside the X-802RR Ultra Carbon Ultra we find a brand new construction material called ‘Carbon Fitting’. This is a brand new padding, created with carbon active filaments, a technology developed as a result of the X-Lite’s racing activities. This material is 100% natural and bacteriostatic (anti-pollution), and stands out because it is an element with high
thermoregulatory capacity. X-Lite states that the use of this type of padding decreases the temperature and the body’s O2 needs as well helping to decrease heart rate when racing at high stress level. ‘Carbon Fitting’ decreases static electricity that can be generated in the interior.
The X-802RR Ultra Carbon fastener is a double D system, as is compulsory for a helmet homologated for track use.
In summary, the X-802RR Ultra Carbon is the most advanced helmet from Nolan Group. Handmade in Italy, with a carbon composite shell of low weight and high strength fiber, it’s a very interesting combination for a very interesting price in the segment of premium racing helmets.
