Live Bid! Melandri's X-lite X-803 Signed Helmet
Take home Melandri's X-lite X-803 helmet.
This is X-lite’s full face racing helmet which maintains and enriches the much-appreciated and consolidated technical characteristics of its predecessor, the X-802RR, an award- winning helmet which is universally recognised as one of the reference points in MotoGP and SBK paddocks.
X-803 is one of the most appreciated full-face racing helmets by the most demanding of motorcyclists, thanks to its compact size (due to the availability of three outer shell sizes), emergency cheek pad removal system (NERS - Nolan Emergency Release System), reliable visor mechanism with a Double Action system, efficient RAF (Racing Air Flow) ventilation system and Carbon Fitting Racing Experience inner comfort padding (with an updated net construction).
Ners - Nolan Emergency Release System: This system, patent pending, allows emergency teams to remove the cheek pads from the helmet while it is still being worn by the motorcyclist by simply pulling the red tapes attached to the front of the pads themselves.
Italian motorcycle racer Marco Melandri will sign the helmet at the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez, making it a truly unique collector's item.
Since 2003, the Veronesi foundation has been pursuing a single objective: promoting the progress of science, health resources and ethical growth—civilly and in society.
"Science must always work for and with the human being,” declared the founder, Umberto Veronesi, “this means respect of the person, research for solutions and strategies that can improve the quality of life, offering new hopes for the present and for the generations in the future”.
At the core of the foundation there is barrier-free and scientific research that invests in young talent from each country, working toward answers to new questions using innovative and high-profile research programs dedicated to the prevention and diagnosis of tumors, cardiovascular disease and neuroscience, and the discovery of cure strategies that are efficient and beneficial to the entire community.
Unique in its genesis, the foundation has pushed its own interests outside the walls of a laboratory, encouraging social involvement and education in science. The Veronesi Foundation is also active with its devotion to science so that the results from science become available to everybody. Particularly, the foundation spreads the principles of prevention and correct lifestyle to keep disease away, even the most serious diseases that we can avoid just by changing our behavior.
