At Speedway Motors our goal is to keep racing fun, affordable and, above all, safe. The HANS Device provides the utmost in head and neck protection for racers. Many questions arise when choosing the correct HANS Device. There are two main styles of HANS Devices: the Pro Series and the Sport Series.

Pro Series vs. Sport Series

The primary difference between the Pro Series and the Sport Series is the weight. The Pro Series (made from hand laid, high modulous carbon fiber) weighs approximately 1 pound while the Sport Series (made from injection molded carbon fiber) weighs approximately 2.25 pounds. There is no difference in the safety protection offered with either one. Both styles are available with 3 different types of helmet anchors, which are outlined in the video below.
