Arai will launch a new concept in helmet design later this year to join the current 2005 line up - The GP-5X.
Taking it's design from Arai's GP-5 car racing helmet, favoured by the majority of Formula 1 drivers, it oozes the Formula 1 look and feel with aluminium F-1 screw sets for the thick (3mm) visor.  Studs for tear offs are standard as are the pods for the HANS (Head and Neck Support System) devices, which are not needed for motorcycle use, but add that F1 appeal to the helmet. Double air intake ducts and outlets plus chin vents offer complete and efficient ventilation. The interior is fully removable and replaceable.
The GP-5X is aimed at the rider who desires something different and will be available in sizes XS - XXL.
Priced at £279.99 for white and £299.99 for Glass Black and Platina Silver. Orders are being placed now for delivery to the UK in September.
