Bell Racing USA is pleased to announce the addition of a completely redesigned GTX.3 to the 2016 product line.
The redesigned GTX.3 is an ideal choice for racers competing in open wheel, open compartment, formula, karting or dirt track forms of racing. The Snell SA2015/FIA8859-2015 GTX.3 features sleek aero styling including a front chin gurney and integrated rear wing for enhanced aerodynamic stability at higher speeds. The GTX.3 features ultra-lightweight carbon composite shell built with Bell’s proprietary high-pressure molding system for improved shell strength and pro-style grey interior for outstanding comfort.
The design of the GTX3 is effective at preventing dust and dirt from entering the helmet by combining a venturi air exchange system with Bell's innovative hollow synthetic rubber gasket seal and positive locking mechanism that seals the visor. The venturi ventilation system allows air to exchange inside the helmet. As air flows over the helmet, the venturi effect increases cooling inside the helmet and prevents shield fogging by creating a vacuum to pull airflow through the helmet. The rear facing chin bar vents and rear exhaust vents allow ventilation while minimizing dust and dirt inside the helmet. For additional fog control, the GTX.3 has an optical grade injected Double Screen Anti Fog (DSAF) shield, with variable thickness exceeding 5mm in the field of vision, setting a new standard for clarity and fog control.
The GTX.3 is certified to the Snell SA2015 and FIA8859-2015 standards. Bell’s M6 terminal hardware is incorporated into the helmet shell and accepts anchor systems. The GTX.3 takes a SV03 shield and SV (SE03/SE05) pivot system and thumb tab on the drivers left side to allow for easy shield operation. The GTX.3 incorporates Bell's redesigned face piece with recessed areas that allow for seamless radio integration and easy installation. Racers can also customize the fit of the GTX.3 by using Bell's Cheek Pad Inserts in 5mm, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm sizes to tighten the fit in the cheek area. The GTX.3 is available in white and rubberized matte black in size 7 1/8 (57) to 7 5/8 Plus (61+). The GTX.3 is also available in a carbon version featuring an ultra-lightweight shell made using Bell’s high-pressure molding system for reduced weight and improved strength in sizes 7 1/8 minus (57-) to 7 5/8 Plus (61+) in carbon finish.
The GTX.3 retails for $699.95 and the GTX.3 Carbon retails for $899.95. Both versions will be available in March 2016.
