The HP3 has been designed through close collaboration with leading F1 drivers and teams and is purpose-built for the intense demands of open-wheel, open-cockpit forms of racing that compete at higher speeds.
The HP3 features a high-strength, ultra-lightweight shell made using aerospace grade carbon and advanced compression molding autoclave technology. The HP3 liner is a multi-piece, multi-density high-impact absorbing liner system utilizing a custom bead developed specifically for the Bell HP helmets.
The helmet has a front lip to provide aerodynamic stability and purpose designed front, top and air intake to maximize airflow inside the helmet. Additional chin bar and top gurneys (sold separately) are available to customize the aerodynamic performance of the helmet.
The 8860 or “super helmet” standard was developed by the FIA to improve overall helmet performance and safety and is known as the most severe racing helmet standard in the world. The FIA8860 specification requires the helmet to be certified to the Snell SA standard plus pass an additional single impact from 5 meters to help protect against more massive impacts and withstand a special shell hardness test to help prevent objects from penetrating the shell. Bell was the first helmet company to introduce an FIA8860 certified model in 2004. Since the initial introduction, Bell’s HP helmets have been constantly improved and the current models are a direct result of intense research and development and close collaboration with the world’s best drivers, teams and testing facilities. Test results show that in certain impacts, the Bell HP helmets absorb up to 40% more energy than standard models.
The HP3 is certified to the Snell SA2010 and FIA8860 standards and is available in an all carbon finish in sizes 7 1/8 minus (57-) to 7 5/8 plus (61+). The helmet takes the SE3 3MM shield and SV pivot system. It comes equipped with Hans Anchors, double screen anti fog visor insert and fleece lined helmet bag.
