TESTED: HANS Adjustable and Sparco Harness



The new HANS adjustable is made from a metal matrix Thixotropic molded construction before a polymer coating is applied. This DuPont Zytel® coating makes the Adjustable HANS extremely fire-resistant.

While heavier than the Sport II model (770g), the HANS Adjustable still weighs a relatively light 970g.  The 10 to 40 degree adjustment (in 5 degree increments) allows for one device to be used across multiple vehicles, and also allows drivers of vehicles with 15 degree or 25 degree setbacks to be more comfortable while strapped in.

As with all HANS devices, driver comfort and safety is enhanced by padding under the legs to cushion the driver, and the size range will fit a wide variety of driver shapes and sizes (size M or L fit 90% of all drivers).

The hardware used to attached the legs to the main piece leave no doubt that ensuring the piece stays together during a major wreck was a paramount concern.  Splines are used to prevent slippage, and beautifully machined and beefy hardware holds it together.
