Arai has been the creator of numerous innovations that improved performance on the road and race track. Our passion for helmets makes us improve our crash helmets constantly, which results in new groundbreaking technology that serves our loyal clients worldwide. Some of the fruits of our R&D endeavors can be seen on these pages.

MULTIPLE DENSITY INNER SHELL

The Arai inner shell comprises three to five different densities, because the human head needs different shock absorbance in different areas. For the last 20 years, Arai is one of the few manufacturers in the world able to produce an inner liner with multiple densities as one single component.

VENTILATION

A sophisticated internal ventilation system uses three closable air intake vents on the front and two on the back of the helmet. They are designed to create minimum turbulences and drag yet maximize air intake capacity.

VISOR LOCKING LEVER

An ergonomically-shaped lever designed to open a closed visor by a fraction to create additional airflow into the helmet. The swivel is large enough to be operated with gloves on.

PED

PED stands for Performance Enhancing Devices which consist of transparent spoilers for the front and back of the helmet to reduce buffeting and enhance general aerodynamic performance. The usage of PEDs depends largely on the type and aerodynamic characteristics of the racing car.

ANCHORS/STUDS

The GP-6RC comes with FHR (Frontal Head Restraint) anchors pre-installed. All other GP helmets  feature pre-installed 6 mm (M6) FHR studs.

 

KEVLAR CHIN STRAP/VISOR

All GP helmets feature a yellow Kevlar chin strap and an extremely strong, 3 mm thick visor.

 

 

EMERGENCY REMOVABLE CHEEK PADS

To reduce the risk of injury to the neck and avoid discomfort to the driver after a crash, the cheek pads can be easily removed in seconds before the helmet is taken off.

FIRE RESISTANT LINING

Arai GP helmets offer maximum fire resistance with a combination of Carbon Nit, Nomex and a new material called Conex, which is a more durable surface material applied in high wear areas. (not for SK-6 and CK-6).
