Isaac® head and neck restraint is the only
product that keeps the belts on the driver's shoulders, reduces
lateral head torque by up to 85% and exceeds performance requirements
in the most severe SFI 38.1 crash test.
Head and neck injuries are the #1
cause of racing fatalities, responsible for approximately 50% of
racing deaths. On average, a driver dies every month in North America
as a result of this injury.
Isaac® systems were designed to meet the

systems are designed to minimize head and neck injuries suffered by
racing drivers without unnecessarily restricting head position. Unlike
some "head restraints," which work by limiting the position
of the head, Isaac® systems work by
limiting the load on the head.
In crash tests conducted at Wayne State University's Bioengineering
Center and the Delphi Safety Systems Test Center, Isaac®
performed as well as any product ever tested, reducing head loads as
much as 85%+. Click here

At every performance level, whether for
the weekend amateur or the seasoned professional, Isaac®
systems provide the most protection per dollar—and
they begin at just $295.
Because they are not "worn" Isaac®
systems have one size and can be used in any style race car by any driver
with any helmet. They easily move between race cars and, because they
are modular, racers can change components as new designs become available.
