New from SCHROTH - SHR FLEX Head Restraint
The SHR FLEX™ is the latest in FHR (Frontal Head Restraint) technology. Designed and developed by the team at SCHROTH we have improved on comfort, fit and flexibility verses existing systems on the market.
The new SHR FLEX™ is a dynamic Head and Neck Protection system with many technological advances.
Design highlights include patent pending dynamic articulation of the collar, a rate responsive bump stop to manage peak neck tension loads as well as a stabilizing dual tether system and form fitting lower legs to provide optimal fit and reduce interference with the seat.
The SHR FLEX™ has been designed with a low collar to be angle independent of your seating position and the pliable legs form fit to the upper body and chest of the user providing excellent stability without the need for excessive padding systems.
In addition to advanced comfort design of the SHR FLEX™ the new device has been optimized with winglets on the upper collar and SCHROTH's patented SlipStop system on the lower legs to assist in belt retention for off-road and rally sport competitors.
The SHR FLEX™ has been designed and tested for use with standard 3" racing belts as well as FHR specific 2" shoulder belts.
Available for pre order now. Shipping in February 2016.
Product Spotlight: SFI 16.5 Hybrid II
In 2007, Schroth introduced the Nextel Cup to the 2" lap belt that has been available to FIA sanctioned racers for years. In doing so, they've stepped up the level of safety available to racers running under all SFI 16.5 harness rules. 2" Lap Belts are now legal in all touring NASCAR series.
The 2" lap belt offers greater safety because it fits better on the human pelvis. The part of the pelvis where the lap belt contacts the body is called the Iliac Crest. This is the bone that sticks out at the front of your hip. When seated, a 3" lap belt will ride on top of this crest. A 2" belt sits below this crest, and exerts all of its force on the hard part of your pelvis, rather than focusing it on a small surface area of bone. Because of this fact, you can generally get the 2" lap belt up to 1.5" tighter than a 3" lap belt.
Add this 2" lap belt to the already impressive features that distinguish the Schroth harness from the rest of the competition and you end up with an easy choice for your harness.
The Hybrid Style harnesses is defined by its special Anti-sub strap setup with two separate straps that loop around the lap belt latches before clicking into the cam lock (See Pictures). This arrangement is much more comfortable for the driver, and is also safer. Generally in tight cockpits, drivers will wear the restraint looser than is recommended purely because a regular Anti-sub strap is uncomfortable. The Hybrid restraint removes the problem, curing the symptom.
You can specify the standard HANS specific 2"/3" shoulder belts or the state-of-the-art "Double Shoulder" belts that feature the 3" body belt and additional 2" HANS belt.
Note: This harness can be converted to 7-point (or 9 point if used with Double Shoulders) By adding a Single Anti Sub strap.Read More
