Stilo ST5 FN VB (Valtteri Bottas) Edition - Size 57cm ONLY!
The VB is a helmet designed around the head of Valtteri Bottas and actually features a narrower and smaller shell than the already compact Zero model. It may be possible to size this helmet down for a smaller head, but due to the shell size, it can be made no larger than 57. But if you want a no-compromise solution, this is it.
Stilo ST5 Zero ABP
Newly released in 2019, the Stilo ST5 FN Zero ABP is the answer to the rigours of F1 use. You may have noticed that as of 2019 competitors no longer have the strip above the visor on their helmets. This Zylon strip was used to protect the vulnerable area between the top of the visor and the helmet and was introduced after a crash where Felipe Massa sustained substantial damage from track debris at the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix.
Not only does the ABP (Advanced Ballistic Protection) negate the need for a Zylon strip, but it also raises the standard for impact testing. ABP is a military spec test where a projectile is shot at 250 km/h and the helmet has to repel it. So in short, if you're looking for the strongest, lightest and arguably most stylish motorsport helmet, you've landed on the right web page.
Stilo has managed to retain the ST5's class-leading small shell, meaning you won't take up more space in the car than you need to and it's also among the lightest on the market.
ABP is a requirement for world-class formula racing. So F1, F2 and Formula E will require this rating. However, as with all standards, we can see this trickling down to become commonplace for most series'.
Many drivers will appreciate the beauty of such a well-crafted item with its low weight meaning less lateral G's in a corner or the unfortunate event of a crash, while others will rest assured by the strength of the shell, but opting for a Stilo ST5 Zero helmet will give the look and the performance that world-class drivers expect and demand.
Please note: All Zero helmets are made to order so will need to be ordered around 3-4 weeks before they are needed.
