Arai GP-7SRC 8860-2018
The new Arai GP-7SRC Carbon Fiber 8860-2018 auto racing helmet 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 weave that combines its existing properties of high strength and extreme light weight.
Arai's proprietary carbon fiber has a property that standard carbon fiber does not possess: flexibility. (Standard carbon fiber 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 carbon fiber auto racing helmet meets or exceeds the latest FIA 8860-2018 homologation standards.

Getting The Best Fit for Your Arai GP-7SRC Carbon
The Arai GP-7SRC 8860-2018 is available in sizes XS to Large. 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.
