The new GP-7SRC 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 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 high end closed cockpit racing. One whose remaining list of features and advances is impressive because, for this helmet and its prospective user, it simply has to be. The GP-7SRC meets or exceeds the FIA 8860-2019 Standard.
