GP-JET/f

Overview

  • The new GP-Jet/f is another representation of Arai's pursuit of a comprehensive package, one providing comfort and function in an attractive package while masking the hidden energy-management system within.

  • New type "f" shell, with updated and improved shell shape and construction, and incorporating lower shell molding details to add strength.

  • Brand new to the Jet/f are four top vents, giving the Jet series its first-ever ventilation system.

  • Holes for the HANS device anchor posts have been provided by the factory. Anyone needing or considering the use of the HANS device with the GP-Jet/f should contact Arai Helmet Americas, Inc. directly for more details.

  • Cheek pads and the comfort head liner are removable and replaceable with optional pads of various thickness for a more custom fit, as well as allowing for more frequent, and more thorough, cleaning when needed.

  • Jet/f has a new adjustable peak that combines the adjustability of the previous Jet-2 with the classic rounded styling of the Jet-Vtg. (Vintage). The peak also includes easily-removable/replaceable light ting anti-glare lens.

  • The same care and attention to detail, that Arai puts into every helmet they make can be found in the details of the GP-Jet open-face series. The interior fit is typical Arai, benefiting from over 50 years of research and refinement, and resulting in a helmet that more closely matches the shape of a human head. The fit is snug, allowing for the smallest possible helmet to be worn while still being comfortable. (Most often, a poor-fitting helmet results in the driver choosing a helmet that is full-size -- or more -- too large in an effort to avoid painful pressure points inherent in a poor fit.)

  • Combined with its legendary comfort and fit, Arai concentrates on balance and a lower center of gravity. All too often, people concentrate more on the weight of a helmet instead of how much that weight is distributed over the entire helmet, how much of the weight is carried down low, and, most importantly, how that weight's balance is carried on your head -- up on top of the helmet where it's more susceptible to buffeting and where it can put more stress and discomfort down near the shoulders. (A properly-fitted helmet will distribute the weight of the helmet more evenly over and around your head, actually making the helmet seem lighter. A helmet that is more evenly balanced and carries more of its weight down low will also appear to be lighter and cause less fatigue.)
