GPA

 

  GPA has a history steeped in Michel Finquel’s background from Formula 1 car racing. Michel, a race car driver in the sixties, formulated new designs for the racing industry after watching many of his friends being hurt and even killed in racing accidents.  He designed the first fire resistant suits under the NAZA brand name; subsequently a close working relationship with designers of the GPA brand brought innovation to Formula 1 with the design of the ‘integral helmet’.  World famous drivers such as Nelson Piquet, Alain Prost, Jacques Laffite and Gilles Villeneuve all have woren GPA helmets.

After he and his daughter took up horse riding, Michel decided he needed to ensure the same protection was offered to protect his daughter’s head as he had done for the Formula 1 drivers in the car racing world.  The GPA brand was the first riding hat to include a combined chin and nape protection strap and also the first hat with CE (European standard) and SEI (US standard) approval.

The were originally designed for show jumping, it then moved into other areas of equestrian sport such as polo, eventing, endurance and even racing.  The safety hats were also chosen for the most demanding of institutions; the French, British, Norwegian, and Italian Police and Armies all use GPA helmets.  This is due to the high performance materials in which the hats are designed from, including Titanium and Carbon for strength and lightness.

GPA Apparel has become the new favorite of many World Class Riders. They are the crème de la crème for riding jackets, shirts and breeches.  The soft shell technology is the key that creates a top of the line edge for all competitive riders.   The GPA "Skin" breech are your answer to a perfect, sinuous fit.  The breeches are cut by laser and bound by a thermo-welding process, making the seams stronger than any kind of stitching.  The show jackets are designed by GPA for serious riders, in lightweight, D-Flex, a revolutionary new fabric which offers incredible four-way stretch for total rider comfort in the saddle.  Better still, these unique fabrics are also water repellant, breathable and machine washable!  Not only will you feel comfortable and confident when competing, but you will look fabulous too!
