Quick Overview

This carbon fibre car helmet incorporates the very best Arai technology, making it FIA 8860-2010 Approved and SNELL SA2015 Approved. 


The carbon fibre GP-6 RC incorporates the very best Arai technology to meet the FIA 8860-2010 and SNELL SA2015 standard. The new GP-6 RC is the obvious choice for drivers competing in Formula 1, GP2, A1 GP, FIA GT, WTCC and other classes where the stringent FIA 8860-2010 regulations apply. The state of the art Arai GP-6RC helmet is a stunning example of Arai’s vision and technology made into a real world piece of equipment. It is made from a proprietary weave of carbon fiber that combines the existing light weight and high strength of Carbon Fiber with added flexibility which standard CF does not possess. This flexibility of the GP-6RC shell allows the helmet to flex on impact and not splinter or shatter like standard CF is known to do. This gives Arai the ability to produce a helmet ready for the demands and requirements of Formula 1 Racing. All our know how and experience we gained in years of F1 racing, is incorporated in this helmet. Perfect aerodynamic properties, improved ventilation and unsurpassed fit and comfort all make the GP-6 RC the ultimate racing helmet. All GP-6 RC helmets come standard with a PED set and Emergency Release System cheek pads. Improved visor lock that can be operated with one hand with gloves, smooth Nomex® neckroll, Kevlar® chin straps and Nomex® lining. The new GP-6 RC comes complete with a ped set, extra set of ventilation ducts and of course fitted FHR anchors and all obligatory FIA labels.
