Arai GP-7SRC ABP Carbon Racing Helmet

The Best Arai Auto Racing Helmet

The new Arai GP-7SRC ABP is a stunning example of Arai’s vision and technological mastery, engineered into a functional, real-world piece of safety equipment. It begins with a startling advancement: a proprietary Carbon Fiber (CF) weave that combines CF’s existing benefits of high strength and extreme light weight.

But there's a major added benefit that standard CF does not possess: flexibility. (Standard CF tends to splinter or shatter instead of flex on impact.) The result is a helmet ready for the unparalleled demands and requirements of high end closed-cockpit racing. The remaining list of Arai GP-7SRC features and advances is impressive because, for this helmet and its prospective user, it simply has to be. The Arai GP-7SRC ABP meets or exceeds the FIA 8860-2018 ABP homologation standard.

Advanced Ballistic Protection The Formula One Standard

FIA's new ABP (Advanced Ballistic Protection) specification is intended especially for drivers in open cars.

The Arai GP-7SRC ABP has been strengthened in the forehead area, incorporating an external intrusion panel (previously mounted to the shield) that is now integrated into the helmet shell itself. The ABP homologation was written to reduce the risk of injury from debris or other objects striking a driver’s head.

Arai GP-7SRC ABP 8860-2018 Carbon Fiber Ventilation

Three large, close-able, intake vents combined with larger 10mm holes and two additional exhaust vents in the center of the helmet greatly increase air flow. A redesigned exhaust cowling improves aerodynamics, drawing out hot air escaping the helmet. The GP-7SRC comes with all vents unattached so you can customize the vent configuration to your specific needs.

Arai Positive Shield Latch

Arai's positive latch mechanism provides solid shield closure while allowing normal operation of the shield. Designed as an integral component of the shield system, not just an add-on afterthought, its functional simplicity belies the complexity of the design.

Installed HANS Post Anchors Included

Integrated seats accommodate a variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices. Pre-installed M6 threaded washer/nut with 6mm threads accepts a variety of anchor systems, making installation easy. The flat surface around the mounting nut allows the anchor post to rest flush on the helmet surface.
