Simpson’s Hybrid Pro Slide Head Restraint Gains FIA Approval


New Braunfels, TX – Simpson’s new carbon fiber head restraint model, the Hybrid Pro Slide, is the latest in the Hybrid Series to gain FIA homologation. The Hybrid Pro Series was first approved for use in FIA championship racing in September, 2012.

Simpson’s new Hybrid Pro Slide will benefit racers by offering more side to side freedom of movement, defined shoulder wings for superb restraint guidance, and a thinner sleek product that exhibits increased product strength and driver comfort. The FIA certification means competitors worldwide are eligible to use the new Hybrid Pro Slide, effective immediately.

"The new Hybird Pro Slide offers seemingly small improvements in design that bring about a significantly improved end result to the field of vision, fit and comfort for all racers, in any type of car," said Simpson’s Trevor Ashline. "Simpson’s goal is to continue to make the best head restraint technology available to all drivers, in every form of Motorsport."

Simpson’s reputation as a leader in racing safety technology is supported by a heritage built on fifty-four years of building driver trust. Simpson helmets, racing suits, shoes, gloves, restraint technology and safety accessories continue to grow through product innovation, supported by racers, for the racer.
