Based on helmets worn by 1982 500cc World Champion Franco Uncini, the X-801RR Uncini Replica is the latest piece of modern protective gear to combine classic graphics with modern safety. Check out Chris Vermeulen’s Sheene replica getup from last year’s Phillip Island Grand Prix for an example of just how well this can work.

We'd like to see more classic, race-inspired graphics find their way onto current leathers, helmets and fairings. There’s no reason we can’t look as good as our childhood heroes while enjoying all the benefits of contemporary functionality.
