Arai GP-7 SRC 8860 Carbon Fiber Auto Racing Helmet
The all-new Arai GP-7 SRC is an absolute masterpiece of Arai engineering, performance and comfort. It also conforms to the new FIA standard 8860-2018, which is intended to be the safest in the world for top-end helmets used in motor sports and an advance on FIA 8860-2010. Key to the GP-7 SRC’s fundamental strength is its shell, which is built around a proprietary Carbon Fiber (CF) weave that combines CF’s existing benefits of high strength and extreme light weight with 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 car racing, whose list of technological features is impressive because, for this helmet and its prospective user, it simply has to be.
