Arai GP-6 (PED)

Material:

  • Arai's exclusive, very-lightweight ScLc shell technology (Super Complex Laminate Construction)

Certifications:

  • Snell 2015
  • FIA 8859-2015

ITS ONLY COMPETITION IS OTHER ARAI HELMETS

Simply put, it’s hard to imagine a better racing helmet. Combine Arai’s proprietary, groundbreaking PBcLc (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate) shell construction -- the same shell shape as the F-1-grid’s GP-6RC model; a wider eye port for optimized peripheral vision; new ventilation; and on and on – and you get the striking new Arai GP-6(PED). The new shell gives you incredible strength and flexibility, and that strength allows Arai to use an extremely soft EPS liner that’s so comfortable it’ll make you think more about a nap than a race. Right until you strap in, that is. The cheek pads are replaceable for a more personal fit. Up top, the ventilation system is greatly improved with three larger, closeable intake vents, plus two larger exhaust cowls.


    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 and function, not just an add-on afterthought. The simplicity of the function masks the complexity of the design.

    WIDER EYEPORT - Wider eye port for increased peripheral field of view, when compared to the previous GP-5 series.

    BUILT IN FHR NUT - 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.

    E-JECT READY CRWON PAD - Pre-cut pocket, under crown pad, can be easily removed to accommodate optional E-Ject(R) system.

    NEW SHIELD PIVOT HARDWARE - 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-6PED.

    VENTILATION - Large, closeable, intake vents combined with larger 10mm holes greatly increase air intake. Larger 10mm rear vent holes, with larger cowls, increases airflow even further.

    NEW CHINBAR - 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.

Arai GP-6S

Material:

  • Proprietary cLc (Complex Laminate Construction) shell.

Certifications:

  • Snell 2015
  • FIA 8859-2015

EVOLUTION OF A CLASSIC

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.

Arai GP-5W

Material:

  • Arai's exclusive, very-lightweight ScLc shell technology (Super Complex Laminate Construction)

Certifications:

  • Snell 2015
  • FIA 8859-2015

SEE RACE DAY IN A WHOLE NEW WAY

THE FAVORITE OF STOCK CAR, SEDAN, AND RALLY DRIVERS: The GP-5W is favored by stock car, sedan, and rally drivers because of its wider, 90mm (approx. 3.5") eye port. With the larger eye port opening, the GP-5W uses an exclusive shield.


    SCLC CONSTRUCTION - It's constructed of Arai's exclusive, very-lightweight ScLc shell technology (Super Complex Laminate Construction), so it maintains a low overall weight to offset the added weight of the larger shield.

    INTERIOR FIT - The interior fit is typical Arai, benefitting from over 50 years of research and refinement, and resulting in a helmet that, as mentioned previously, more closely matches the shape of the human head. The first is snug, allowing for the smallest possible helmet to be worn while still being comfortable.

    BUILT IN FHR NUT - 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.

    REMOVABLE/REPLACEABLE CHEEKPADS - The cheekpads are removable and washable for easier cleaning. More importantly, they're replaceable with optional sizes of varying thicknesses for a more custom, personalized fit.

    SHELL SHAPE - It has a smaller, more "natural" head shape, and a lower center of gravity to balance and stabilize the helmet so it feels even lighter, thereby helping to reduce fatigue.

    WIDER EYEPORT - Larger 90mm eyeport, top to bottom, than comparable Arai models, provides a better vertical view desired by many sedan drivers. For drivers not needing a shield, a visor peak option is available.

    VENTILATION - The upper ventilation system incorporates two large intake ducts and the same two exhaust vent ducts found on the GP-5(PED). This vent system allows for improved air flow even within the confines of a sedan or closed cockpit.

Arai GP-J3

Material:

  • Proprietary cLc (Complex Laminate Construction) shell.

Certifications:

  • Snell 2015
  • FIA 8859-2015

THE VINTAGE RACER’S DREAM

The Arai GP-J3 is another representation of Arai's pursuit of comfort and function in one attractive package whose simplicity and smooth lines belie the complex energy-management system within. The updated and improved shell shape and construction incorporate extended facial coverage with sculpted "FCS" cheek pads for improved support and comfort. The same care and attention that Arai puts into every helmet can be found in the details of the GP-J3 open-face series. The interior fit is typical Arai, benefiting from over 50 years of research and refinement, and resulting in a helmet that more closely matches the shape of the human head. The fit is close but remarkably comfortable, allowing for the smallest possible helmet to be worn for maximum protection.


    ADJUSTABLE PEAK - GP-J3 has an adjustable peak that combines the adjustability of the previous Jet/f with the classic rounded styling of a more traditional vintage design. The peak also includes easily-removable/replaceable light tint anti-glare lens.

    VENTILATION - The GP-J3 has four top vents, giving the Jet series its first-ever ventilation system.

    BUILT IN FHR NUT - 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.

    CHEEK PADS AND THE COMFORT HEAD LINER - Removable and replaceable with optional pads of various thicknesses for a more custom fit, as well as allowing for more frequent, and more thorough, cleaning when needed.

    LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY - Combined with its legendary comfort and fit, Arai concentrates on balance and a lower center of gravity. All too often, people concentrate more on the weight of a helmet instead of how that weight is distributed over the entire helmet. A lower center of gravity causes less fatigue and feels lighter on the wearers head over a full track session.

THE ULTIMATE KARTING HELMET

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. Designed by Arai specifically for karting, the SK-6 adds a ton of features and advancements to the already-impressive list of its predecessor. You won’t believe the comfort, lightness, and feeling of confidence the SK-6 gives you, thanks to its incredibly strong, proprietary cLc (Complex Laminate Construction) shell. 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.
