The Simpson Hybrid Pro Lite, is the lightest Hybrid Frontal Head Restraint available. The device features a powerful design that is 30% lighter than the original Hybrid Pro. Made in the USA of ultralight, high quality carbon and with the lowest profile in the industry. If it’s good enough for Shane van Gisbergen its good enough for you.
The Hybrid Pro Lite features an efficient tether system design that results in smooth side to side motion. A thinner back plate, encapsulated tie plates and graceful tether grooves, all come together and provide a multi-tasking device that protects with proven, tested, and tested again technology. A full size range of XS-XL provides a comfortable, custom-like fit for all racers.
Simpson Hybrid devices are the only FIA 8858-2010 approved Head and Neck Restraint on the market that protect during front, offset and side impacts. Designed for easily exiting the car without the danger of getting hung up on other gear, the device sits on your back/shoulders, not over the chest or collarbone as with the old HANS-type devices. Plus, they provide you with maximum comfort and manoeuvrability.
Chuck Davies, CEO of Simpson Performance Products, said: “Simpson Hybrid restraints endure rigorous testing to ensure they will perform and protect in real-world racing conditions. We are extremely proud of the new Hybrid Pro Lite and the significant advantages it offers the racer”
