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 single intake/single exhaust vents provide excellent ventilation performance. Check the entire list of features and we think you’ll agree: The only thing missing from Arai’s GP-6S is the higher price tag.
Snell SA2015 certified with the new M6 washer/nut installed at the factory, so anyone can easily install their Head and Neck Restraint system. This helmet also comes with the FIA-8859-2015 certification sticker applied to the interior liner of the helmet.
Sizes XS to XL, choose either White or Black Frost.
GP-6S M6 FEATURES
POSITIVE SHIELD LATCH
- Positive latch mechanism provides solid shield latching while allowing normal operation of the shield. Designed to be an integral component of the shield system, its simplicity of the function belies the complexity of its design.
NEW SHIELD PIVOT HARDWARE
- New shield pivot hardware with redesigned track slider to improve aerodynamics. New wider 6-Series shield and eye port for increased peripheral field of view compared to the 5-Series. Shield, pivot hardware, and wider eye port were developed on the top-of-the-line RC and adapted to the GP-6S.
- Large close-able intake vent combined with a 10mm vent greatly increases air intake. Larger 10mm rear vent hole further increases airflow.
M6 ANCHOR TYPE
- Pre-Installed M6 threaded washer/nut with 6mm threads accept a variety of anchor systems for Head and Neck Restraints. Flat surface area around the mounting nut allows the anchor post to rest flush on the helmet surface. FIA-8859-2015 certified.
- Newly sculpted chin bar and ridge along lower edge of shell improve structural integrity and provide a stronger shell near the opening where it's needed. The Center of Gravity is also lowered. Rise in shell above the shoulders for added clearance.
E-JECT READY CROWN PAD
- Pre-cut pocket under crown pad can be easily removed to accommodate optional E-Ject system.
An effective helmet is one that fits properly. Have an assistant use a measuring tape, or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head starting at a point approximately one inch above the eyebrows in front, around a point in the back of the head that results in the largest possible measurement, and finally wrapping back to the front. It is a good idea to take several measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
