About this item:
Being the dominant helmet on the F-1 grid, winning an IRL Championship, and protecting the heads of NASCAR heroes like Gordon, Burton, and Montoya, has put Arai on the receiving end of an abundance of world-class racing-helmet input. And the GP-7 gets the benefits of this input.
The new GP-7 combines Arai’s proprietary, groundbreaking PBcLc (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate) shell construction, an ultra-comfortable interior, and a host of new Arai technological solutions that create the latest Arai automotive racing helmet.
The Arai GP-7 delivers an extensive list of new features including: a new re-positioned lower shield pivot point that increases the protective area of the helmet, new restyled air intake ports for optimum efficiency, two additional exhaust ports on the top of the helmet for improved exhaust airflow, a new chin bar design, new cheek pads that encapsulate your head for an amazing compact feel, and an updated rear exhaust cowling for improved aerodynamics and better exhaust air venting.
The proven Arai shell gives the Arai GP-7 incredible strength and flexibility, and that strength allows Arai to use an extremely soft EPS liner that’s so comfortable it’ll make you think more about a nap than a race. Right until you strap in, that is.
Now Snell SA2020 certified. This helmet also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker applied to the interior liner of the helmet.
LIGHTWEIGHT: PBcLc (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate) shell construction.
POSITIVE SHIELD LATCH: Positive latch mechanism provides Solid shield latching, while allowing normal operation of the shield. Designed to be an integral component of the shield system and function, not just an add-on afterthought. The simplicity of the function masks the complexity of the design.
NEW SHIELD PIVOT HARDWARE: New shield pivot hardware, with new one-piece track slider and screw hardware that is adjusted with a T-20 torx screw. This allows the pivot point of the shield opening to moved downwards on the shell to give the shell more area for Glacning Off Shield.
NEW FCS CHEEK PADS: For the GP-7SRC the cheek pads are scuplted to grip the lower jaw of the driver more securely. This feature was highlighted by our F1 drivers as they feel the helmet encapsulates thier head better and also reduces outside wind noise.
VENTILATION: Three large, closeable, intake vents combined with larger 10mm holes and two aditional exhaust vents in the center of the helmet greatly increase air flow. While a redesigned exhaust cowling improves aerodymaics and hot air escaping the helmet. Note: The GP-7SRC comes with all vents unattached so you can customize the vent configuration depening on your specifics needs.
M6 ANCHOR TYPE: Integrated seats to accommodate a variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices. Pre-Installed M6 threaded washer/nut, with 6mm threads, to accept a variety of anchors systems for variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices and make installation much easier for people not familiar with such installations. Flat surface area around the mounting nut to allow the anchor post base to rest flush with the helmet surface around the entire perimeter of the anchor base.The GP-7SRC come standard with the HANS Clips installed.
E-JECT READY CROWN PAD: Pre-cut pocket, under crown pad, can be easily removed to accommodate optional E-Ject(R) system.
