Simply put, it’s hard to imagine a better racing helmet.
Combine Arai’s proprietary, groundbreaking PBcLc (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate)
shell construction -- the same shell shape as the F-1-grid’s GP-6RC model; a wider eye port
for optimized peripheral vision; new ventilation; and on and on – and you get the striking new
Arai GP-6(PED). The new shell gives you incredible strength and flexibility, and that strength
allows Arai to use an extremely soft EPS liner that’s so comfortable it’ll make you think more
about a nap than a race. Right until you strap in, that is. The cheek pads are replaceable for
a more personal fit. Up top, the ventilation system is greatly improved with three larger, closeable
intake vents, plus two larger exhaust cowls.
Now Snell SA2015 certified, with the new M6 washer/nut installed at the factory.
With the 6mm washer/nut installed, anyone can now easily install a variety of
Head and Neck Restraint systems that use a 6mm bolt to their helmet.
This helmet also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker applied to the interior liner of the helmet.
