Helmets certified to FIA 8859-2015 met the safety requirements set by the FIA and were widely accepted in many racing series Which helmet certification is the most stringent and the hardest to meet?

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.   ARAI GP-6RC 8860-2010 CARBON FIBER AUTO RACING HELMET POSITIVE SHIELD LATCH Positive latch mechanism provides solid shield latching while allowing normal operation of the shield. Designed to be an integral component of the shield system, not just an add-on afterthought. Simplicity of the function belies the complexity of the design. ARAI GP-6RC 8860-2010 CARBON FIBER AUTO RACING HELMET HANS POST ANCHORS Integrated seats to accommodate a variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices. Pre-installed M6 threaded washer/nut with 6mm threads accepst a variety of anchor systems, making installation much easier. Flat surface area around the mounting nut allows the anchor post base to rest flush with the helmet surface. ARAI GP-6RC 8860-2010 CARBON FIBER AUTO RACING HELMET SHELL Proprietary carbon fiber material and weave provide an extremely strong yet flexible material, helping manage impact energy. Multiple reinforcing materials are used to improve performance and keep weight and size to a minimum. ARAI GP-6RC 8860-2010 CARBON FIBER AUTO RACING HELMET EJECT READY CROWN PAD Pre-cut pocket under the crown pad can be easily removed to accommodate the optional eject system.   GET THE BEST FIT The GP-6RC 8860-2010 Clearance is available in sizes XS to Large. 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. This helmet will ship with signature required for delivery.
