Arai Auto Racing GP-5W SA2015 Helmet
The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W SA2015 Helmet is perfect for stock car, sedan, and rally drivers. The GP-5W Helmet is a favorite because of its wider, 90mm (approx 3.5” top to bottom) eye port opening. The GP-5W uses its own exclusive shield with this larger opening.
The GP-5W is Snell SA2015 certified with M6 washer/nuts installed at the factory. Drivers of any experience level will be able to easily install their Head and Neck Restraint system anchor posts (sold separately). The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W SA2015 also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker found on the shell’s interior lining.
Arai GP-5W SA2015 Helmet Features:
The GP-5W Helmet SA2015 is built with Arai's exclusive, very-lightweight ScLc (Super Complex Laminate Construction) shell technology. This ensures a low overall weight to balance the added weight of the helmet’s larger shield.
The The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W Helmet SA2015 helps reduce fatigue for the driver due to its more natural head shape, smaller shell size, and lower center of gravity to assist with balance and stability.
The The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W Helmet SA2015 is designed to closely match the shape of the human head, allowing for a snug, yet comfortable, fit. Arai has developed this “natural” shape over more than 50 years of helmet design research and refinement.
WIDER EYE PORT
Sedan drivers will appreciate the larger, 90mm eye port, top to bottom. A visor peak is available for drivers not needing a shield on the The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W Helmet SA2015.
REMOVABLE/REPLACEABLE CHEEK PADS
Low-maintenance, easy-to-clean cheek pads are removable, washable, and replaceable with pads of varying thickness to provide a snug, safe fit.
M6 ANCHOR TYPE
The FIA-8859-2015 certified GP-5W Helmet SA2015 is pre-installed with the M6 threaded washer/nut with 6mm threads. This convenient feature allows the driver to use the anchor system that works with their Head and Neck Restraints the best. The anchor post is made to rest flush on the helmet surface due to a flat surface area around the mounting nut. Accepts a variety of anchor systems for Head and Neck Restraints.
Sedan car and closed cockpit drivers need greater airflow when racing. The upper ventilation system of the GP-5W SA2015 Helmet incorporates two exhaust vents and two large intake ducts to help keep the driver cool and comfortable.
Anti- Fog Shields in Clear, Light Tint and Dark Smoke; Standard shields in Clear, Light Tint and Dark Smoke; or Tear-Offs in Five-Packs (10 mil thick) and Ten-Packs (5 mil thick).
An effective helmet is one that fits properly. Have an assistant use a measuring tape, or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head starting at a point approximately one inch above the eyebrows in front, around a point in the back of the head that results in the largest possible measurement, and finally wrapping back to the front. It is a good idea to take several measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
