Arai GP-7 SA2020 Helmet

A driver favorite, the Arai GP-7 SA2020 helmet combines the most popular Arai features with new, improved upgrades. The GP-7 is constructed with Arai’s own PBcLc (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate) shell construction and the same shell shape as the Formula 1 grade GP-7SRC model. New ventilation, a soft EPS liner, and a wider eye port for optimized peripheral vision are part of this new shell which gives the driver notable strength and flexibility. Replaceable cheek pads make racing comfortable for any driver, as do the three larger, closeable intake vents and two larger exhaust vents on the ventilation system.

The GP-7 helmet is Snell SA2020 certified with factory-installed M6 washers/nuts. Drivers of any skill level can install their own Head and Neck Restraint system using a 6mm bolt. The FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker is applied to the interior liner of the helmet.

How to Measure Your Head for a Helmet


Simple yet effective, the positive latch mechanism on the GP-7 SA2020 helmet gives the driver solid shield latching, but is seamlessly integrated into the standard shield system for ease of use.


The GP-7 SA2020 features new shield pivot hardware with improved aerodynamics based on the updated track slider design. An increased peripheral field of view is featured on the 6 series, which surpasses the 5 series in visibility. The wider eye port, shield, and pivot hardware were all developed on the RC and adapted to the GP-7 SA2020 helmet.


Increased airflow is key to the GP-7 SA2020 helmet’s design. This includes bigger, closeable intake vents with large 10mm holes in both front and rear. Larger rear vents also provide better airflow.


Drivers of all skill levels will appreciate the integrated, pre-installed M6 threaded washer/nut with 6mm threads which accepts a range of Head and Neck Restraint devices. A flat surface area around the mounting nut will let the anchor post base to rest flush along the surface of the helmet and around the full perimeter of the anchor base.

The GP-7 SA2020’s new, ergonomic chinbar and ridge at the bottom edge of the shell lowers the center of gravity and increases the structural integrity of the helmet. Additional improvements include a rise in the shell above the shoulders for increased clearance.


Arai's optional Eject system can be easily accommodated via a pre-cut pocket under the helmet’s crown pad. 

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.
