Danvers, MA – March 30, 2010 – Stilo Helmets of Treviolo, Italy, the leading helmet provider to the World Rally Championship has appointed HMS Motorsport, Danvers, MA as their exclusive United States distributor for all of their helmet, rally intercom, and race communications products.
Stilo s.r.l. was founded in 1999 by former Italian Rally Champion, Ludovico Fassitelli and his wife Elena Perini. Their initial product line was the first open face helmet in the world designed around the intercom and a series of state of the art rally radio intercom systems. This quickly expanded to a complete line of the highest quality – lightweight helmets, integrating headset earmuff speakers, microphone, air, and drinking systems. Fassitelli said “the integration of all of these options into the shell of the helmet maintains the integrity of the helmet that might otherwise be compromised by third party modifications.” This industry first is the primary reason Stilo has become the favorite of WRC, F1, and other professional drivers worldwide.
All Stilo motorsport helmets meet the current SNELL 2005 standard and are available in three different shell materials – fiberglass/Kevlar composite, carbon/Kevlar, and full carbon fiber (FIA 8860). Karting and Offshore boat racing models are available as well.
HMS Motorsport, Ltd of Danvers, MA, was founded in 1995 by Joe Marko, a leading safety expert in seatbelt and head and neck restraints. Fassitelli stated that “HMS is the perfect partner based on their exceptional success as the North American Distributor for SCHROTH® Racing Harnessbelts, their extensive distribution network, and their recognition as leaders in motorsports safety”. HMS has successfully made SCHROTH the most used harnessbelt in both the NASCAR Sprint Cup and IRL racing series and the premium belt of choice for both professional and amateur racers.
