THE FAVORITE OF STOCK CAR, SEDAN, AND RALLY DRIVERS: The GP-5W is favored by stock car, sedan, and rally drivers because of its wider, 90mm (approx. 3.5") eye port. With the larger eye port opening, the GP-5W uses an exclusive shield.
Now Snell SA2015 certified, with the new M6 washer/nut installed at the factory. With the 6mm washer/nut installed, anyone can now easily install a variety of Head and Neck Restraint systems that use a 6mm bolt to their helmet. This helmet also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker applied to the interior liner of the helmet.
GP-5W Specs and features
It's constructed of Arai's exclusive, very-lightweight ScLc shell technology (Super Complex Laminate Construction), so it maintains a low overall weight to offset the added weight of the larger shield.
It has a smaller, more "natural" head shape, and a lower center of gravity to balance and stabilize the helmet so it feels even lighter, thereby helping to reduce fatigue.
The interior fit is typical Arai, benefitting from over 50 years of research and refinement, and resulting in a helmet that, as mentioned previously, more closely matches the shape of the human head. The first is snug, allowing for the smallest possible helmet to be worn while still being comfortable.
Larger 90mm eyeport, top to bottom, than comparable Arai models, provides a better vertical view desired by many sedan drivers. For drivers not needing a shield, a visor peak option is available.
The cheekpads are removable and washable for easier cleaning. More importantly, they're replaceable with optional sizes of varying thicknesses for a more custom, personalized fit.
The upper ventilation system incorporates two large intake ducts and the same two exhaust vent ducts found on the GP-5(PED). This vent system allows for improved air flow even within the confines of a sedan or closed cockpit.
M6 ANCHOR TYPE
Integrated seats to accommodate a variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices. Pre-Installed M6 threaded washer/nut, with 6mm threads, to accept a variety of anchors systems for variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices and make installation much easier for people not familiar with such installations. Flat surface area around the mounting nut to allow the anchor post base to rest flush with the helmet surface around the entire perimeter of the anchor base. FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker applied to the interior liner material.
