Arai GP-7SRC 8860-2018 Carbon Fiber Helmet

The new GP-7SRC is a stunning example of Arai vision and technological mastery, engineered into a functional, real-world piece of safety equipment. It begins with a startling advancement: a proprietary carbon fiber weave that combines its existing properties of high strength and extreme light weight.

This proprietary carbon fiber has a property that standard carbon fiber does not possess: flexibility. (Standard carbon fiber 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. The remaining list of GP-7SRC 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 latest FIA 8860-2018 homologation standards. Fits Intermediate-Oval head shapes.


Large, closable intake vents combined with a 10mm vent greatly increase air intake. Larger 10mm rear vent hole increases air flow further compared to previous models.


Positive latch mechanism provides solid shield latching while allowing normal operation of the shield. Designed to be an integral component of the shield system, not just an add-on afterthought. Simplicity of the function belies the complexity of the design.


Integrated seats to accommodate a variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices. Pre-installed M6 threaded washer/nut with 6mm threads accepst a variety of anchor systems, making installation much easier. Flat surface area around the mounting nut allows the anchor post base to rest flush with the helmet surface.


Proprietary carbon fiber material and weave provide an extremely strong yet flexible material, helping manage impact energy. Multiple reinforcing materials are used to improve performance and keep weight and size to a minimum.


Pre-cut pocket under the crown pad can be easily removed to accommodate the optional eject system.


The GP-7SRC chin liner is now more easily removed to install a drink tube into the liner. The chin liner comes standard with four different drink hose placements.


The GP-7SRC 8860-2018 is available in sizes Extra Small to Large

An effective helmet is one that fits properly. Have an assistant use a measuring tape, or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head starting at a point approximately one inch above the eyebrows in front, around a point in the back of the head that results in the largest possible measurement, and finally wrapping back to the front. It is a good idea to take several measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
