What is FIA Homologation?

FIA Standards are recognised throughout the UK and Europe Motorsport events and represent a higher level of safety standards than the SNELL homologation.

What Our Customers Say About Our FIA Helmets

“Quality is great, finish is classy with plenty of vent holes (which is what I was after) and I’m pleased to note that it has the classic D-ring fastener which is simple, adjustable and reliable (no need for fancy buckles, D-rings are stronger). It came with a complimentary bag and the quality/practicality is much better than I thought it would be, very easy to open and well thought out. I’d happily buy another…and probably will eventually. Recommended.”

“The helmet is fantastic, zero noise, comfortable and really beautiful, I would recommend it to everyone! Top quality”

“I would say that the quality/price ratio is Amazing and the customer service experience was great. I love my Zamp helmet”



“A very nice helmet that fits well and feels very safe. In addition, a beautiful design, especially in combination with a rear spoiler and a coloured visor. Recommended!”

“I already have a much loved older Zamp helmet and this RZ35 is even better, the quality and attention to detail matches helmets from much more expensive brands and comfort and fit is so good it makes me realise how bad my old Bell helmet fitted me. I cannot see me buying any other brand from now on.”

“Great Karting helmet, light and comfortable even on hot and sunny days thanks to the great ventilation. I would recommend it for sure. Two teammates are going for this as well.”
