About this item:
Favorite racing helmet of a stock car, sedan, and rally drivers due to its wider, 90mm (approx. 3.5") eye-port. With the larger eye port opening, the GP-5W uses an exclusive shield..
Now Snell SA2020 certified, with the new M6 washer/nut installed at the factory. Anyone can now easily install a variety of head and neck Restraint systems that use a 6mm bolt on their helmet (HANS clips are sold separately.
The Arai GP-5W is also certified to the FIA-8859-2015. The certification sticker is applied to the interior liner of the helmet.
The GP-5W Helmet is a full-face helmet with a super-complex laminate shell construction designed to be both strong and lightweight.
Lightweight: it is constructed of Arai's exclusive SCLC - Super Complex Laminate shell technology for lightweight.
Interior fit: The interior fit is typical Arai, benefiting from over 50 years of research and refinement, resulting in a helmet that more closely matches the shape of the human head. The first is snug, allowing for the smallest possible helmet to be worn while still being comfortable.
The cheekpads are removable and washable for easier cleaning. More importantly, they're replaceable with optional sizes of varying thicknesses for a more custom, personalized fit.
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.
Shell shape: It has a smaller, more "natural" head shape, and a lower center of gravity to balance and stabilize the helmet so it feels even lighter, thereby helping to reduce fatigue.
Wider eyeport: Larger 90mm eyeport, top to bottom, than comparable Arai models, provides a better vertical view desired by many sedan drivers. For drivers not needing a shield, a visor peak option is available.
Ventilation: The upper ventilation system incorporates two large intake ducts and the same two exhaust vent ducts found on the GP-5(PED). This vent system allows for improved air flow even within the confines of a sedan or closed cockpit.
