Simpson Introduces the Revolutionary HANS III Device

DECEMBER 11, 2014

Simpson Performance Products will officially introduce and display the advanced HANS III device during the prestigious Performance Racing Industry Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, December 11-13, 2014. The HANS III promises to be the lightest weight composite HANS device in the world and is approved for competition by the SFI Foundation and the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). Competitors worldwide are now eligible to race using the HANS III.

The HANS III represents the third generation of injection molded HANS devices and features a contemporary approach to reducing weight. Using an all new design and polymer, the device features a hollow collar that substantially minimizes weight. Engineered reinforcements ensure an exceptionally strong structure that provides the same level of safety as every HANS device. The reduced mass guarantees the lightest and most comfortable injection molded HANS ever.

"We are extremely proud of the new HANS III and the significant advantages it will offer the racer. What better venue to introduce and display the HANS III to our U.S. racers than the PRI Show, recognized as an annual epicenter of new racing technology. Over 1100 companies will be on hand displaying the most advanced hard core racing products available. We will have our share of new product contributions, leading with the HANS III." states Chuck Davies, CEO of Simpson Performance Products.
