About the Head and Neck Restraint:
The R3 is engineered to disappear! This device is very comfortable and extremely effective!
It is the patented Head and Neck Restraint System used by Racers like Jeg and Troy Caughlin, Robert Hight, and John Force.
This easy to wear, carbon fiber unit has passed the stringent SFI 38.1 standard to achieve certification.
Safety Solutions, Inc. commitment to continuous improvement through R&D has lead to break through in the head and neck industry. The R3 is user friendly and has a low top which allows for easy exit out of the race car. The 3” wide chest strap gives the wearer even more confidence in the security of the device while dissipating restraint load over a larger area. Lower tethers allow more side to side head movement along with increasing the amount of load transferred to the seat belts during impact.
The R3 uses a simple molded seat pad to “re-make” the back of your seat so that the device has a comfortable position in your race car. Easily the most comfortable device on the market, the R3 allows the seat belts to stay on your body for a safer, more reliable impact situation. The R3 is available for all types of seats and ages from 5 and up. It is also available in an “IN-SEAT” version. However none of the rental units are of the “IN-SEAT” version type.
The R3 has undergone extensive testing using the most technically advanced engineering methods known to the Safety Industry. It has been tested in the most advanced and hardest impacting hyge sled labs in the world.
The R3 head and neck restraint travels with the occupant during a crash to help keep the relationship of the head, neck and torso consistent.
Combined with a simple installation of a u-shaped seat pad, the R3 disappears into the seatback, making the R3 undetectable to the wearer!
The device does not rely on the seatbelts for restraint.
The R3 is multiple impact capable.
The R3 can be strapped to the occupant or it can be left in the car and anchored to the seatbelt system.
Straps are made of kevlar webbing rated at a 1% travel rate.
The R3 works with both open and closed face helmets.
SFI 38.1 Certified
The R3 comes in six different sizes.
There are four different versions based on what seat type you have.
The back angle of the seat should be measured just below the seat belt.
The difference in the R3 models being the actual shape of the R3 designed to fit the seatback.
R3 provides additional u-shaped energy absorbing padding made by the good folks at BSCI to place between you and the seat.
