Arai GP-6RC 8860-2010 Carbon Fiber Auto Racing Helmet (Clearance)

Combining Advanced Safety and Lightweight Design for Serious Racers

The Arai GP-6RC is a stunning example of Arai’s vision and technological mastery engineered into a functional, real-world piece of safety equipment. It begins with a startling advancement: a proprietary Carbon Fiber (CF) weave that combines CF’s existing benefits of high strength and extreme light weight with a major added benefit that standard CF does not possess: flexibility. (Standard CF tends to splinter or shatter instead of flex on impact.) The result is a helmet ready for the unparalleled demands and requirements of Formula-1 racing. One whose remaining list of features and advances is impressive because, for this helmet and its prospective user, it simply has to be. The Arai GP-6RC meets or exceeds the FIA 8860-2010 certification standard which is valid for 10 years from the date of manufacture.

How to measure your head correctly before buying auto racing helmet

How to Get the Best Fit for Your Arai GP-6R Carbon Helmet

These Arai GP-6RC 8860-2010 helmets are available in sizes XS, Small, and Large only.

The most effective helmet is one that fits properly. To measure your head, have an assistant use a dressmaker's tape or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head. Start at a point about an inch above your eyebrows, looping around the back of your head at the point that results in the largest measurement, and finally around to the front again. It's a good idea to take two or three measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
