The successor of the much loved GP-5K model comes with Snell and FIA 8859-2015 approvals. Using the same shell shape as the GP-6 and GP-6RC, the GP-6S offers an affordable price level while still maintaining a host of features and innovations. The GP-6S utilizes the same shield as the GP-6 as well as the same larger eye port size for increased peripheral vision. The GP-6S utilizes a single intake and single exhaust and the forward vent has been enlarged to improve air intake and improve overall ventilation performance.The CLC outer shell uses much of the GP-6 RC technology and styling. Improved ventilation thanks to larger duct ventilation holes. Fire resistant lining made of three materials: Carbon Nit ®, Nomex® and Conex® fabrics. Yellow Kevlar® chin strap. Comes with FHR M6 studs.
Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction Arai’s proprietary (super fibre belt) Peripheral Belt, borrowed from our F-1 technology, greatly increases shell strength and flexibility while maintaining low weight and a lower centre of gravity. Positioned across the top of the eye port, this band contributes to the use of a thinner EPS liner which greatly enhances the upward field of view. A specially designed “mechanically expanded fibre mat”, sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of Arai’s proprietary Super Fibre Laminates, is used to reinforce and bond these two Super Fibre layers without adding significant weight to the helmet.
