The Simpson X Bandit Pro Has the Distinction of Being the First U.S. Manufactured
FIA 8860 Approved Helmet
Made entirely from ultra lightweight carbon fiber formed by auto clave technology, the X-Bandit Pro is fully compliant with the latest FIA 8860 standard. This standard is a requirement for many international automobile racing series. The X-Bandit Pro is the first U.S. manufactured FIA 8860 approved helmet and is produced at the Simpson manufacturing facility.
This helmet features advanced protection in all key areas of helmet safety and is manufactured using technology first seen in Formula 1 racing. The X-Bandit Pro is designed for professional drag racers that routinely race at some of the most extreme speeds in racing and are keenly aware of the importance of a well-built helmet.
The X Bandit Pro was designed to spread impact energy over a larger area to reduce injury. The helmet also provides substantially greater protection from a crushability and penetration stand point.
Featuring levels of performance and protection previously unavailable at any price, the X-Bandit Pro is a value at $2999.95. The helmet will accommodate any approved head and neck restraint device. A custom helmet can be built and delivered by Simpson in 3 to 4 weeks whereas some helmet manufacturers can take twice that long.
