How much side to side head movement do you get with the SHR flex compared to the HANS?

The HANS can be a pain on some of the track I drive on. The entrance doesn't allow for visibility in the mirrors so you need to turn your head. I could just blend but I'd rather look first.

I can't say comparatively, but there is probably around 40-45 degrees left or right worth of turning available.

Check out this video around 1:24

That has to be more side to side travel than the HANS. Hmmm...I might go this route whenever I replace my HANS.

Thanks!
