“SHR Flex” is a Frontal Head Restraint (FHR) safety system for racecar drivers. Its
breakthrough dynamic design architecture provides racers uncompromised protection from
severe or fatal upper neck injuries in high-impact crashes and unprecedented comfort and
fit during normal driving.
Like established FHRs, the SHR Flex is worn around a racer’s neck, has a “collar” that
tethers to their helmet, and “legs” which interact with their seatbelt to anchor the
system. Risk of injury is reduced by managing head/helmet motions.
Typically, FHRs have bulky collars with tethering that limits a racer’s field of vision at
all times, are uncomfortably rigid, and installation needs cockpit adaptations.
The innovative, compact, SHR Flex design overcomes these limitations with a dynamic
articulated collar that only limits head/helmet motions when activated in a crash, and
unique flexible, cushioned, legs that conform to all body types without compromise and
obviate the need for additional, unwieldy, comfort padding.
