The GP.2 youth helmet is designed for young racers who need an extra small size helmet that is fire retardant. The GP.2 youth has the same design features as the adult GP.2 model. The GP.2 Youth is SFI 24.1 certified and available in sizes 4XS to XS in metallic silver. The SFI 24.1 standard is accepted by various youth and karting organizations including the Quarter Midget Association of America (QMA).
GP.2 Youth is a fantastic choice for young racers who demand great styling, superior features, light weight and excellent fit in a smaller configuration built specifically for kids. The GP.2 Youth features a front aero chin bar, a lightweight composite shell, pro-style interior neck collar for outstanding comfort, and a front air intake that forces air into the helmet's forehead vents for maximum ventilation. The .200mm GP.2 CMR air intake is replaceable and the helmet can be used without the air intake. The direct flow upper and lower chin bar vents on the front of the helmet help to increase airflow and prevent shield fogging.
The GP.2 Youth has been designed to work with Bell's aero kits to configure the helmet for all forms of kart racing depending on the aerodynamic requirements and environment. While the GP.2 Youth has a front aero lip and chin bar designed into the helmet, these aerodynamic kits enhance helmet performance to provide greater stability at higher speeds. The aerodynamic kits include top wicker gurneys which create an air separation point on the top of the helmet to allow airflow to detach from the helmet reducing buffeting, chin bar gurneys which add down force to the front of the helmet to prevent lift and rear spoilers that improve overall helmet stability. Because of the way airflow accelerates at higher speeds, Bell recommends using larger size gurneys at lower relative speeds and medium or smaller gurneys as speeds increase. The GP.2 Youth comes with an air intake as standard equipment that can be replaced as necessary. The aero kits attach with double sided adhesive that holds aggressively to the shell yet can be removed easily without damaging the helmet's finish. Other aerodynamic kits (sold separately) that can be used with the GP.2 YOUTH include:
