HANS devices are now required in most circuit racing and rally championships including F1, WRC, GP2, WTCC, F3000, NASCAR, IRL, Champ Car, DTM and  GT International, and are highly recommended by the FIA even when they are not mandatory. The HANS device has established itself as a fundamental component of driver safety as tests have shown it reduces the risk of neck and spinal injury in the event of sudden and violent decelerations often experienced in racing related impacts.

The new RS2 Racing Series HANS device from Stand 21 is a new evolution to the range of devices currently available on the market. After careful consideration of all the current versions available the Racing Series has some new design features making it the most up to date. This clever 20 degree HANS device comes in a single Medium/Large size allowing one device for virtually all sizes of driver in a Saloon/Rally car seating position. The Racing Series has a new exclusive recycled carbon based manufacturing process is moulded under very high pressure. This material and the process makes it very strong, easily passing the FIA testing programme for HANS, but also light weighing in at just 826 grams. The racing series is 30% lighter than the sport series and just under 200 grams heavier than the much more expensive Hi Tec carbon version. Less weight means more comfort and also makes it much easier to handle when taking it on and off during the stages of a rally. It has a new moulded chest yokes which dramatically improves comfort as these now fit around your collar bone giving a more snug fit, when you consider it being held tightly in position by your harness. This is the only HANS device that has this comfort feature. With its much narrowed upright back it allows a more positive fitment of your seatbelts, thus making it easier to setup in the confines of the cars cockpit before stage or race starts.
It comes as standard with a sliding tether offering the driver more head rotation but still giving protection against a whiplash injury in an accident. At the price this is the perfect compromise between the cheaper and heavy sport option and the light weight and more expensive Hi-Tec Pro HANS.

Highly recommended for its design, weight and cost. Please contact Tony Dunn at Stand 21 on 0404 007 768 or PM to discuss any questions you might.
