Product Description

Using the same shell shape as the F-1 GP-6RC, the GP-6PED provides the latest incarnation of the iconic Arai “GP” Series auto racing helmet. The GP-6PED utilizes a new shield, as the eye port has been enlarged by 5mm on each side, to increase peripheral vision. The new positive shield lock mechanism provides solid latching, while allowing normal operation of the shield. Designed to be an integral component of the shield system and function, not just an add-on afterthought. The complexity of the design is hidden beneath the simplicity of the function. The upper ventilation now incorporates three large, closeable intake vents to draw more air in, as well as two larger rear exhaust cowls which pull more air out. The combination greatly improves ventilation. All vent holes have been increased to 10mm, from 7.8mm on the 5 series. Large, closeable, intake vents combined with larger 10mm holes greatly increase air intake, while larger 10mm rear vent holes, with larger cowls, increases airflow even further. SAH-2015 model denotes factory installed M6 threaded inserts for Hans Posts and FIA sticker certification.

New for the GP6 line is a sculpted chin bar and ridge along lower edge of shell to improve structural integrity. This provides a stronger shell near the opening where it is needed, as well as lowers the center of gravity. There is a rise in shell above the shoulders for added clearance. Clear Performance Enhancing Device kit can be installed as needed. Cheek pads are replaceable with option sizes for a customized fit. There is a new shield pivot hardware for improving aerodynamics, a wider eye port for increased peripheral field of view, and a type “6” 3mm shield (will not fit GP5 model). This shield, pivot hardware and wider eye port are all the same as used on the new GP-6RC model.

Using Arai’s proprietary “PBcLc” (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminated Construction) the GP-6 is light weight and provides incredible shell strength and flexibility. A stronger shell allows Arai to use an extremely soft interior EPS liner for maximum comfort and excellent impact energy management. The GP-6 line also features newly integrated seats for HANS® posts, pre-drilled shell to better facilitate proper installation. The flat mounting surface allows the HANS® anchor post bases to rest flush with the surface of the shell around the entire perimeter of the post base. Includes an Arai PED kit for better aerodynamics (uninstalled) and Hans Anchors.

Available in Sizes: S, M, L, XL and XXL
