The Arai GP-5W is designed for use in just about any form of racing, from formula cars to sedans. The shell is hand-laminated using a complex composite developed for F1, with the fibers specially oriented for maximum strength with flexibility. You get the well-known Arai styling and performance, with protection that meets or exceeds Snell SA2015 and FIA 8859-2015 standards.
The GP-5W features a tall (90mm high) eyeport that allows easier viewing of a mirror at the top of the windshield. Inlet vents on the chin and two inlets in the forehead take in cooling air, and dual exhaust ports in the rear let the hot air escape. The GP-5W is ready for use with a head-and-neck restraint, with M6 female threaded anchor receptacles in the shell (anchors sold separately). Available in gloss White only. Includes one clear face shield.
SA2015 is the latest Snell Foundation rating for automotive racing helmets. This helmet rating has been developed to provide the best safety protection for auto racing drivers who are restrained in their vehicles. SA2015 helmets are tested for flame retardance, and additional tests ensure compatibility with HANS® Devices. An SA-rated helmet may not meet DOT specifications for street use, such as on motorcycles.
SIZING: Helmets should fit as snug as possible without causing discomfort. Measure head circumference around the largest part of the head approximately one inch above the eyebrows and just above the ears. If a Nomex hood will be worn with the helmet, it should be worn when measuring head circumference. If a hood is not available, add about 1/4 inch to the circumference measurement for a single layer hood and 1/2 inch for a double layer hood.
