The premier composite motor racing helmet of the world.
The GP-6 PED SA2015 helmet is the latest in a long line of famous Arai GP series racing helmets.

Also, the upper ventilation now includes three larger 10mm intake vents and two rear exhaust vents that were increased from 7.8mm on the GP-5 to aid in air circulation through the helmet.
Constructed using Arai s proprietary PBcLc (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminated Construction) the GP-6(PED) is light weight and provides incredible shell strength and flexibility.
