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 SK-6 gets the benefits of this input.
The Arai SK-6 is a karting specific helmet that uses the same, highly developed and immensely strong shell as the GP-6S race helmet with Complex Laminate Construction for light weight.
Its strength allowed Arai to give the SK-6 an extremely soft EPS liner for better comfort and impact energy management.
If you’re serious about taking your karting to the next level, choose the helmet that’s already there.
Based On The GP-6S Race Helmet.
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. A feature taken directly from the new GP-6PED.
Wider eye port for increased peripheral field of view.
New "Removable/Replaceable" cheek pad design, allows for custom fitting with optional thicknesses (15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 30mm). Cheek pad covers are also removable to allow for easier and more thorough cleaning.
New shield pivot hardware improves aerodynamics. Type "6" 3mm shield.
Larger intake vent toggles for easier operation. Large rear vents for improved ventilation. Features taken directly from the new GP-6PED.
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.
