New from SCHROTH - SHR FLEX Head Restraint
New from SCHROTH Racing for 2015 - the SHR FLEX™
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.
We anticipate SFI 38.1 approval and availability of the SHR FLEX™ by late spring/early summer 2015!

Product Spotlight: Schroth Quick Fit Pro - BMW E36/E46/E39
Schroth's revolutionary Quick Fit Pro is the world's first 4 point harness that is designed to be used with a HANS Device in your stock seats! Now the safety and peace of mind that come from driving with a HANS device is available to the Driver's School and Open track day participant.
The secret behind this revolutionary design is the integration with the vehicle's existing safety system and an innovative geometry maximizing effectiveness of the HANS Device. Conventional 4 point restraints do not join at a center Cam Lock, they are sewn to lap belts leaving them almost 6-8 inches apart from each other. The design of the Quick Fit Pro is such that both shoulder belts angle in towards the Cam Lock facilitating use with a HANS Device.
Like the Standard Quick Fit Harnesses, the Quick Fit Pro clicks into the car's female seat belt receptacles. This alerts the airbag computer to the fact that someone is in the seat and restrained, as well as takes advantage of the seat belt pre-tensioner. This device ignites a pyrotechnic charge in the event of an accident that will tighten the lap belt. This integration into the factory safety system is a very important part of the Schroth Quick Fit Pro.
These harnesses are designed to be used in stock seats that have passed a seat back strength test. Now you don't have to spend $3,000 on a Rollbar, seats and 6 point harnesses.
Dynamic Sled Test
Here's video of one of our dynamic sled tests showing the results with a QuickFit Pro, a VW Golf seat and a HANS Device. Notice how the shoulder belts capture the HANS device correctly and the Anti-Submarining (ASM) Technology firmly plants the hips back in the seat on the rebound phase. This is what keeps you from sliding under the lap belts.Read More
