The Arai GP-5W is designed for use in just about any form of racing, from formula cars to sedans. The shell is hand-laminated using a complex composite developed for F1, with the fibers specially oriented for maximum strength with flexibility. You get the well-known Arai styling and performance, with protection that meets or exceeds Snell SA2020 and FIA 8859 standards.
The GP-5W features a tall (90mm high) eye port that allows easier viewing of a mirror at the top of the windshield. Inlet vents on the chin and two inlets in the forehead take in cooling air, and dual exhaust ports in the rear let the hot air escape. The GP-5W is ready for use with a head-and-neck restraint, with M6 female threaded anchor receptacles in the shell (anchors sold separately). Available in gloss White only. Includes one clear face shield.
SA2020 is the latest Snell Foundation rating for automotive racing helmets. This helmet rating has been developed to provide the best safety protection for auto racing drivers who are restrained in their vehicles. SA2020 helmets are tested for flame retardance, and additional tests ensure compatibility with HANS® Devices. An SA-rated helmet may not meet DOT specifications for street use, such as on motorcycles.
