Product Description

The GP.2 Carbon features an ultra-lightweight carbon shell made using Bell’s high-pressure resin transfer molding system, allowing us to build a carbon helmet with superior performance at an economical price. The GP.2 Carbon is certified to the Snell SA2010 and the FIA8858 standard. The FIA8858 certification requires the helmet to be tested for use with Head and Neck Restraint Devices. Bell’s M6 terminal hardware is incorporated into the helmet shell and accepts anchor systems.

The GP.2 Carbon features a front aero chin bar, an ultra-lightweight, pro-style interior for outstanding comfort and a front air intake that forces air into the helmet's forehead vents for maximum ventilation. The .200mm GP.2 air intake is replaceable and the helmet can be used without the air intake. The direct flow upper and lower chin bar vents on the front of the helmet help to increase airflow and prevent shield fogging. The GP.2 Carbon can also be adapted for use as a top forced air helmet. The top forced air kit has been designed to utilize the helmet’s vents to flow air around the top of the head and also maximize airflow to the face by directing the air to the eye port between the foam seal and back of the shield. The top forced air kit is available in clear ($39.95) or carbon fiber ($99.95). Both versions are available with Bell’s standard V.05 nozzle or the smaller QL nozzle.

The GP.2 Carbon is built with an interior that can be adapted for use with ear cups. Originally developed for Bell’s rally helmets, the ear cups can be incorporated into the helmet’s interior by installing an ear cup face piece and collar assembly. The integrated ear cups provide a quieter environment for the driver by reducing the ambient noise transmitted to the ear. Bell has developed a specific liner and face piece to allow the helmet to accommodate ear cups. The GP.2 Carbon can be easily adapted for use with ear cups by installing the GP.2 ear cup face piece ($39.95) and full EC neck collar ($19.95) plus standard size 21mm ear cups ($29.95). The total price is $89.95 to convert the GP.2 Carbon for use with ear cups. The cups install with Velcro and include spacers to adjust the fit as needed.

The GP.2 Carbon has been designed to work with Bell's aero kits including chin bar gurneys, top gurneys and rear spoilers to configure the helmet for all open wheel and open compartment forms of racing depending on aerodynamic requirements and environment. While the GP.2 Carbon has a front aero lip and chin bar designed into the helmet, these aerodynamic kits enhance helmet performance to provide greater helmet stability at higher speeds.

The GP.2 Carbon takes a 287 SRV Shield which features the SRV-1 pivot system and thumb tab on the drivers left side to allow for easy shield operation. The GP.2 Carbon incorporates Bell's redesigned face piece with recessed areas that allow for seamless radio integration and easy installation. Racers can also customize the fit of the GP.2 Carbon by using Bell's Cheek Pad Inserts in 5mm, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm sizes to tighten the fit in the cheek area. The GP.2 Carbon is available in carbon finish only in size 7 1/8 minus (57-) to 7 3/4 and retails for $799.95.
