Arai GP-6RC 8860-2010
The GP-6RC is a stunning example of Arai’s vision and technological mastery engineered into a functional, real-world piece of safety equipment. It begins with a startling advancement: a proprietary Carbon Fiber (CF) weave that combines CF’s existing benefits of high strength and extreme light weight with a major added benefit that standard CF does not possess: flexibility. (Standard CF tends to splinter or shatter instead of flex on impact.) The result is a helmet ready for the unparalleled demands and requirements of Formula-1 racing. One whose remaining list of features and advances is impressive because, for this helmet and its prospective user, it simply has to be. The GP-6RC meets or exceeds the FIA 8860-2010 certification standard which is valid for 10 years from the date of manufacture.
These closeout helmets have manufacture dates of 2017-2019 so you will have a 8860 certified helmet that is still valid for 4-6 years.
Notice: If you have the helmet painted, please do not remove the trims as this will void the FIA certification.

The most effective helmet is one that fits properly. To measure your head, have an assistant use a dressmaker's tape or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head. Start at a point about an inch above your eyebrows, looping around the back of your head at the point that results in the largest measurement, and finally around to the front again. It's a good idea to take two or three measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
