Why Stilo?

We stock a range of Stilo helmets for all different kinds of motorsport racing including rallies, circuits, karting, drifting, speedway, and speedboats.

Stilo helmets are made to be used with their communication systems and intercoms. This makes installing and using comms with the Stilo helmets super easy and convenient. The helmets already have great earmuffs installed in them with great isolation from external noises. The helmets with a Microphone have a Magnetic-dynamic noise-cancelling microphone. Supplied with spacers to move the microphone position closer to the driver’s mouth. There is also optional drinks integration for drivers racing in longer more hard enduring races.

If you are after a speedboat helmet, then Stilo is the range for you. We have a bright orange helmet already up to regulation. No need to go and get further paint work done causing a higher cost for your helmet.

How Stilo Helmet Naming Works

ST5R is the same as ST5F R The “R” stands for Rally which designates that the helmet is fitted with an ear cup and speakers, this is how 90% of Stilo helmets sold in New Zealand are. For true FIA-sanctioned circuit racing, you are not allowed speakers in the helmet.

MSNZ allow the use of “R” helmets for both Rally and Circuit. If you are racing internationally you cannot use a Rally helmet for circuit racing.

The difference between “F” has electronics fitted, and “FN” has no electronics and has no bump on the side of the helmet.

Roux Motorsport Helmet

Why Roux Helmets?

Roux helmets are a very versatile option and can be worked in whatever way suits your needs. They can come fully loaded with drink, radio, and water or they can come with nothing. This is the perfect option if you are wanting to customize the inside of your helmet. They are also super stylish helmets with great shapes and colour options. We love the matt black helmet that looks great out on track. You have again many visor options that can be brought and changed around depending on a driver’s needs.
