Arai GP-6S (W/M6 Studs)
Using the shell shape of the GP-6 and GP-6RC, the GP-6S offers an affordable price level while still maintaining the same larger eye port size for increased peripheral vision. The GP-6S has a single intake and single exhaust, 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 straps. Comes with FHR M6 studs.
- Large 10mm intake and exhaust holes for increased airflow (front vents are closeable)

- Wider eye port for increased peripheral vision
- New positive shield locking mechanism provides solid shield latching while allowing normal operation

Fit the measured size. Focus on your head size (crown fit) measurement first, e.g. the area contacted by a baseball caps' band. Do not be concerned with facial fit at this stage. When you can't get the helmet past your cheeks or jaws, do not think it's too small and reach for a bigger size. The helmet must fit your head!
How? Remove the cheek pads and try on helmet sizes until you get that snug crown fit. For the most comfort the interior must fit snugly all around the crown of your head. You should feel some pressure at all the contact points around the interior perimeter, too much pressure could become uncomfortable in the future.
Finally, Arai's optional cheek pad thicknesses, and on some models the replaceable interiors, can fine-tune your personal fit. All Arai cheek pads can be replaced with a size that better suits your facial structure. But this fit should be addressed only when the crown size is correct.
Besides the replaceable cheek pads, selected models feature the "Peel-away Cheek Pad Layer" and "Peel-away Temple Pad Layer". The pads of these models can be made thinner easily by removing a 5 mm thick peel-away layer for added room if needed.
In special cases, Arai helmets can be made to measure.
We offer up to 6 different sizes outer shells. Unlike many other manufacturers Arai provides one size outer shell for each two helmet sizes for most models, adding up to four outer shell sizes within limited models. Starting with XXXS (49-50) for really small heads up to XXXL (65-66) for really large heads.
