Arai Auto Racing GP-5W SA2020 Helmet
The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W SA2020 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 ARAI GP-5W is Snell SA2020 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 SA2020 also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker found on the shell’s interior lining.
ARAI GP-5W AUTO RACING HELMET SCLC CONSTRUCTION
The ARAI GP-5W Helmet SA2020 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.
ARAI GP-5W AUTO RACING HELMET SHELL SHAPE
The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W Helmet SA2020 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.
INTERIOR FIT OF THE ARAI GP-5W
The Arai Auto Racing GP-5W Helmet SA2020 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 OF THE ARAI GP-5W
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 SA2020.
ARAI GP-5W 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.
The FIA-8859-2015 certified GP-5W helmet has M6 threaded washer/nuts with 6mm threads pre-installed. This convenient feature lets the driver use the anchor system that works best with their Head and Neck Restraint. The anchor posts are made to rest flush on the helmet surface, accepting a variety of HNR anchor systems.
ARAI GP-5W VENTILATION
Closed-cockpit drivers need greater airflow when racing. The upper ventilation system of the GP-5W SA2020 helmet incorporates two exhaust vents and two large intake ducts to help keep the driver cool and comfortable.

The most effective helmet is one that fits properly. To measure your head, have an assistant use a dressmaker's tape or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head. Start at a point about an inch above your eyebrows, looping around the back of your head at the point that results in the largest measurement, and finally around to the front again. It's a good idea to take two or three measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
