Helmets : Arai : GP-7 SA2020
The new Arai GP-7 Auto Racing Helmet 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 helmet 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. The Arai GP-7 FRP helmet is now Snell SA2020 certified, with the M6 washer/nut installed at the factory. With the 6mm washer/nut installed, anyone can now easily install a variety of Head and Neck Restraint systems that use a 6mm bolt to their helmet. This helmet also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker applied to the interior liner of the helmet. Snell SA2020 and FIA 8859-2015 Approved and Certified. Available in white or flat black colors. Sizes: XS-L.
