The new Stio VENTI WRC Helmet / intercom system is an innovative rally helmet produces a revolutionary wireless bluetooth concept within in in-cockpit communication, ideal for Rally, Targa, offroad, boat or offshore profesional intercom communications stilo venti wrc intercom system.
Named VENTI WRC to celebrate the first twenty years since the founding of Stilo and to evoke its 100% ‘Made in Italy’ nature, this model builds on the successful WRC Helmet series that was introduced when the company was founded. The WRC Series later on evolved into the WRC DES that allowed Stilo to win 16 world titles in a row and countless European and National titles.
The VENTI WRC is a ground-breaking product in the new era of Stilo history due to the Stilo Wireless Technology it is equipped with, reaching a whole new level in communication between driver, co-driver and crew-service park staff. Stilo technicians developed a helmet that is lighter but also houses an innovative wireless key that can be inserted instead of cable and is totally integrated into the shape of the helmet.
This simple but essential object, combined with the a new and completely digital intercom named DiGi Wireless, allows the crew to be connected at all times, even when it is necessary to get out of the car due to an incident or to perform quick fixes to the car during the stages. This is a ground-breaking innovation that allows continuous flow of information between driver and co-driver and with the service park team.
On top of this, there is no more need for cable connections which improves the life within the cockpit, while bringing communication to unprecedented levels.
The Stilo Wireless Technology is combined with a crash helmet, the VENTI WRC, that has specifically been designed around this technology to meet the needs of drivers and co-drivers, not only supporting their performance and comfort, but also meeting the highest safety standards. Designed to adapt to every driver with as small a shell as possible, the VENTI WRC also introduced a new microphone holder slimmer to improve visibility and featuring a new design in its frontal area to deviate the external noise and improve the input audio signal.
The design of the helmet has also been improved and the frontal area features a more aggressive look, while the interior has been modified for even higher comfort. Importantly, all the versions of VENTI WRC (i.e. 8860, Carbon and Zero 8860) benefit from the Puro Technology, a new technology developed by Stilo in Italy to avoid the external transparent painting which reduces the overall weight while retailing the same quality of finishing.
“We worked very hard to introduce this innovation with the VENTI WRC – Operations Director at Stilo Paolo Bonetalli commented – and we are very proud of the level we reached. The WRC is a racing helmet that set the benchmark in this discipline and that was used many World Champions, which showed to a great extent the commitment and care we devote to every project.
The VENTI WRC and the new DiGi Wireless intercom will bring in-cockpit communication to a whole new level. It will improve the quality of the communication and support the performance of crews in whatever competition from the FIA World Rally Championship to every rally around the world”.

Stilo WRC Venti Zero 8860 Rally Helmet
Celebrating 20 years since the launch of Stilo’s iconic WRC helmet with its fixed microphone boom, the WRC Venti Zero 8860 has had a design change to further improve on the world’s most popular rally helmet. bluetooth rally intercom.
The WRC Venti Zero 8860 is homologated to the FIA’s highest standard of FIA8860-18 allowing this helmet to be used in all premiere championships, and in addition, it also has Snell SA2020 homologation when used in the US. Coming in its stunning Carbon finish it is destined to be the most popular carbon rally helmet in the range, like the previous Des model. The Zero is the lightest and strongest rally helmet available today, with the small shell weighing in at just over 1kg is just unbelievable.
On the exterior, the boom has been redesigned, and not just an ascetic change, but designed to deflect the loud in-car sounds that are generated in modern rally cars and in turn improves the clarity of sound for the crew, In addition, the new boom allows the microphone to adjust far easier to a position closer to your mouth, which further improves the clarity of sound by cutting out noisy background sounds. A redesigned peak delivers a sharper and more aggressive look but being sleeker overall. The shape of the shell has also changed to give a slightly more angular appearance, but in turn, adds strength to the shell.
All the shells for their carbon helmets are now manufactured in Stilo’s own carbon manufacturing facility, this factory bought to allow further developments to remove weight and add strength, and by keeping these technological improvements very much in-house its keeps their secrets safe and benefit the long term future of the brand. One new development in the Venti’s construction is Pluro technology, this allows the shells to be built up straight out of the mould, as the shells do-not require any lacquer to give the shell a smooth gloss finish, this ultimately means more weight saving for the wearer making it safer in an accident situation.
As with the Des version, the Venti model comes with M61 HANS posts fitted as standard for the connection of your FHR device. The interior delivers the most comfortable fit and can be modified to have a bespoke fit should it be required, this is something that has to be done at Harris Race Radios which can be arranged on making an appointment.
The fitted WRC electronics are unchanged from the previous model, unchanged for no other reason as they were unable to improve what they have currently, which further confirms the benefits these electronics have in such a harsh working environment. One other change is the new comm port plug, this is now inset into the helmet a bit further, and allows the main body of the intercom plug to fit inside the port itself. This offers more stability and protects your intercom cable, but has been mainly designed for use with the new Stilo DG WL-10 Wireless intercom helmet key. It has been modified like this to move the body of the new wireless intercom key further forward to give clearance from the HANS posts and the tether of your FHR device when used in competition.
All in all, the WRC Venti has improvements that will keep this helmet as the top choice of the world’s rally drivers, and it looks making it the best-looking open face helmet on the market. bluetooth rally intercom
