  • Being the dominant helmet on the F-1 grid, winning an IRL Championship, and protecting the heads of NASCAR heroes like Gordon, Burton, and Montoya, has put Arai on the receiving end of an abundance of world-class racing-helmet input. And the GP-6S gets the benefits of this input.

  • The GP-6S is designed with the sport driver in mind (hence the "S" designation). It uses the same shell shape as the GP-6 (PED) and state-of-the-art GP-6RC, along with the same wider eye port for increased peripheral vision.

  • The GP-6S helmet uses a Complex Laminate System for the manufacture of the strong, rigid and lightweight shell, which features the same design and shape as the other full-face helmets in the Arai range.

  • The GP-6S has a unique, high efficiency venting system and an easy to use and adjust visor opening system.

  • Shaped interior cheek pads give unsurpassed levels of comfort and fit while helping to reduce wind noise to aid concentration.

  • Lightweight: has Complex Laminate Construction for light weight.

  • 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 simplicity of the function masks the complexity of the design.

  • Wider eye port for increased peripheral field of view.

  • M6 Anchor Type: Integrated seats to accommodate a variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices.

    • Pre-Installed M6 threaded washer/nut, with 6mm threads, to accept a variety of anchors systems for variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices and make installation much easier for people not familiar with such installations.

    • Flat surface area around the mounting nut to allow the anchor post base to rest flush with the helmet surface around the entire perimeter of the anchor base.

  • E-Ject ready crown pad: Pre-cut pocket, under crown pad, can be easily removed to accomodate optional E-Ject(R) system.

  • New shield pivot hardware, with redesigned track slider that improves aerodynamics. New wider 6 series shield & eye port, for increased peripheral field of view when compared to the previous 5 series. Shield, pivot hardware and wider eye port were developed on the RC and adapted to the GP-6S.

  • Ventilation:  Large, closeable, intake vent combined with a larger 10mm hole greatly increases air intake. Larger 10mm rear vent hole further increases airflow.

  • New chin bar: Newly sculpted chin bar and ridge along lower edge of shell to improve structural integrity. Provides a stronger shell near the opening where it is needed as well as lowers the Center of Gravity. Rise in shell above the shoulders for added clearance.
