Lovingly handcrafted in Argentina, the Rivadavia is a faithful replica of the helmet that accompanied Fangio to his greatest victories. It is named after the pseudonym the champion used (his soccer team’s name, itself named after the first president of the Argentinean Republic back in 1826) to engage in his first races without his parents knowing – an insider “hat trick” you’ll appreciate.
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 and arrives nicely packed in a linen bag that you can use whenever taking the helmet to a track day or an event.
The Rivadavia 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.
