OMP distributes the Hans® device produced under license by Stand21. Required in most championships on ciruits and rally (for example, F1, WRC, WTCC, F3000, Nascar, IRL, Champ Car, DTM, GT International, etc..), the Hans® device has established itself as a fundamental component of driver safety. Recognized as the best head and neck protection for drivers, tests have shown it reduces the risk of neck and spinal injury in the event of sudden and violent deaccelerations often experienced in racing related impacts. Proven effective on all types of terrain (circuits, rally, dirt).
Made from high strength carbon fibre, the Hans® devices we distribute comply with FIA 8858-2002, a standard which established the criteria for optimal resistance to the forces applied to a drivers head and neck in the sudden deacceleration experienced in an impact.
The models we offer are among the lightest (530 gr to 650 gr, depending on the model) and ergonomic available.
