Being the dominant helmet on the F-1 grid, winning an IRL Championship, and protecting the heads of NASCAR heroes like Gordon, Burton, and Montoya, has put Arai on the receiving end of an abundance of world-class racing-helmet input. And the SK-6 gets the benefits of this input. Designed by Arai specifically for karting, the SK-6 adds a ton of features and advancements to the already-impressive list of its predecessor. You won’t believe the comfort, lightness, and feeling of confidence the SK-6 gives you, thanks to its incredibly strong, proprietary cLc (Complex Laminate Construction) shell. Its strength allowed Arai to give the SK-6 an extremely soft EPS liner for better comfort and impact energy management. If you’re serious about taking your karting to the next level, choose the helmet that’s already there.

The new GP-6/SK-6 Arai Mirrored Visors (VP):
Due to new FIA regulations and new insights in visor technology, Arai will no longer offer fully coated GP-6 shields. (as at August 2016) These shields are replaced by the GP-Y VP-ready coated shields. These shields are not coated on the position where a Visor Panel (VP) may be attached. The coating prevents a sufficient strong bonding between the visor panel and the shield, therefore the area where the VP is to be attached is left uncoated.
All GP-6 VP-ready coated shields will be offered with special decals (stickers) that cover the uncoated part of the visor for better appearance of the shield.
