The damaged Nolan X-Lite X-802R after Checa˘s Phillip Island WSBK race 1 crash.
Carlos Checa had a big crash in Phillip Island when he missed his braking mark during Race 1 of the season.
Nolan, the manufacturer of Checa˘s X-Lite X-802R helmet, sponsoring him on the WSBK racing has published a short video of the crash and the photos of his helmet stripped-down after the crash.
The outside of the helmet looks heavily scratched and maybe pressed to the inside by the impact.
Nolan removing the lining shows that it˘s the interior which is also damaged in the form of cracks and indentations.
These marks reveal how the helmet absorbed the energy of Checa˘s crash, protecting rider˘s head inside.
