The Arai GP-6RC is the very same helmet worn by F1 and IndyCar drivers. The shell is hand-laminated using a complex carbon fiber composite, with the fibers specially oriented for maximum strength with flexibility. An extra "halo" of reinforcement provides extra protection above the eye opening and around the back of the head without increasing weight. You get exactly the same Arai styling and performance, with protection that meets or exceeds Snell SA2015 and FIA 8860 standards.
The GP-6RC features a narrow (60mm high) eyeport that is ideal for high-speed open wheel racing. A special visor locking/lifting lever on the left side makes it easy to open the visor, even with gloves on and hands pumped full of adrenaline. Two inlet vents on the chin three on the forehead take in cooling air, and two large exhaust ports in the rear let the hot air escape. The included PED (Performance Enhancing Device) kit consists of two clear stick-on spoilers (one front and one rear) for increased high-speed aero stability in open cockpits.
The GP-6RC is FHR-ready, with FIA 8860-spec anchors preinstalled in the shell. Available in clear-coated natural carbon fiber only. Includes one clear face shield.
SA2015 is the latest Snell Foundation rating for automotive racing helmets. This helmet rating has been developed to provide the best safety protection for auto racing drivers who are restrained in their vehicles. SA2015 helmets are tested for flame retardance, and additional tests ensure compatibility with HANS® Devices. An SA-rated helmet may not meet DOT specifications for street use, such as on motorcycles.
SIZING: Helmets should fit as snug as possible without causing discomfort. Measure head circumference around the largest part of the head approximately one inch above the eyebrows and just above the ears. If a one or two layer Nomex hood will be worn with the helmet, it should be worn when measuring head circumference. If a hood is not available, add about 1/4 inch to the circumference measurement for a single layer hood and 1/2 inch for a double layer hood.
