Description

The Hybrid Sport from Simpson features a light-weight design using DuPontĀ® carbon/polymer construction. This construction provides maximum comfort and maneuverability with superior strength. Hybrids come race ready. The low-profile design disappears into the seat when worn allowing for easy in and out of the race car. This eliminates the danger of becoming caught in other gear. The protection stays with the racer during multiple impact, flips and rolls.

With FIA 8858-2010 certification only, on Simpson Hybrid Sport, Prolite and Hybrid S models sold at Revolution Racegear, they do not require SFI Recertification every 5 years.

Tether replacements are recommended at 5-year intervals.

The purpose of the Hybrid device is to keep the head from whipping in a crash. This prevents excessive rotational movement as a secondary protection, without otherwise restricting movement of the neck. This allows the head to move normally but prevents or restricts head movements during a crash that would exceed the normal articulation range of the musculoskeletal system and cause severe injury. In any kind of crash the body will be decelerated by the harness. The head will maintain velocity until it is decelerated by the neck. The device maintains the relative position of the head to the body transferring energy to the chest, torso, shoulder, seat belts, and seat as the head is decelerated.
