Handcrafted helmets for the real motorsport fan

£899.00 (Approx. $1,142.36 / €982.59)

Sold By: Motor Sport Magazine


Lovingly handcrafted in Argentina El Chico is a faithful replica of the helmet that accompanied Sir Stirling Moss to his greatest victories. It is named after the nickname that Juan-Manuel Fangio affectionately gave his younger rival and protege.

The helmet shell is built from a base moulded from resin and fibres while it’s inside is lined with the 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.

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.

El Chico 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 customization options we offer related to the nationality of the racer you want to honour, with (in addition to a vintage Suixtil flag in the back of the head, right over the goggle strap holder) the following vintage flag options available either as a shield or a rectangular shape.

The flags are crafted from purpose-made water-based decals, carefully applied to your helmet so that they’ll show your (true) colors for a long time to come, or, rather, as we like to call it here – at life speed!
