Choosing and Fitting Your HANS Device
It's easy to find the right HANS Device for you.
For comfort, the HANS Device should match the angle of your seatback. Correct fit and comfort is a combination of the seatback angle AND the stature of the driver. For example, a Model 20 will rest at a different angle over the shoulders of 125lb woman compared to a 250lb man.
MODEL 10 - EXTREME UPRIGHT SEAT - Fits many Sprint cars. Fits many people weighing under 75 lbs. in an upright seat. If you sit very upright and cannot get comfortable with a Model 20 try this Model. (Available only in Medium size.)
MODEL 20 - UPRIGHT SEAT- Fits all sedans including NASCAR, Busch, Sprint, Midget, Quarter Midget, Drag, Modified, Bandalero and similar. All sportscars including Porsche, BMW, Corvette, Honda, Viper etc. All Panoz Racing Series cars. Marine applications including UIM and Drag Boats.
* NOTE: Drivers over 200 lbs. may find a Model 30 more comfortable in vehicles listed above. In all cases driver comfort is the deciding factor.
* MODEL 30 - SEMI RECLINED SEAT - Fits Formula Mazda, Atlantic, Infiniti Pro, Barber Dodge, IRL, C/D Sports Racer, Formula 1 and similar.
* MODEL 40 - RECLINED SEAT - The Model 40 is a rare application and fits extremely reclined seats such as Vintage Formula Ford. Many people who buy a Model 40 return it for a Model 30. Please measure your seat (Use an angle meter available at DIY-type stores) before ordering.
HELMET ANCHOR INSTALLATION
The HANS Device attaches to your helmet via two metal anchors. Many customers install their own anchors - many new helmets come pre-drilled for HANS anchors. As a factory-trained HANS Dealer, LPI Racing is also available to assist with helmet anchor installation. Devices come with instructions plus a special installation tool.
Some models are available in different series. The only difference is weight - all HANS Devices offer the same class-leading protection. The Professional Series weighs about 1 pound and the Sport Series weighs about 2.25 pounds. Weights vary due to size and accessories.
