The GP-6S is designed with the sport driver in mind (hence the "S" designation). It uses the same shell shape as the GP-6 (PED) and state-of-the-art GP-6RC, along with the same wider eye port for increased peripheral vision. The single intake/single exhaust vents provide excellent ventilation performance. Check the entire list of features and we think you’ll agree: The only thing missing from Arai’s GP-6S is the higher price tag.
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 and function, not just an add-on afterthought. The simplicity of the function masks the complexity of the design.
WIDER EYEPORT - Wider eye port for increased peripheral field of view, when compared to the previous 5 series.
BUILT IN FHR NUT - Pre-Installed M6 threaded washer/nut, with 6mm threads, to accept a variety of anchors systems for variety of Head and Neck Restraint devices and make installation much easier for people not familiar with such installations.
E-JECT READY CRWON PADPre-cut pocket, under crown pad, can be easily removed to accommodate optional E-Ject(R) system.
NEW SHIELD PIVOT HARDWARE - New shield pivot hardware, with redesigned track slider that improves aerodynamics. New wider 6 series shield & eye port, for increased peripheral field of view when compared to the previous 5 series. Shield, pivot hardware and wider eye port were developed on the RC and adapted to the GP-6S.
VENTILATION - Large, closeable, intake vent combined with a larger 10mm hole greatly increases air intake. Larger 10mm rear vent hole further increases airflow.
NEW CHINBAR - Newly sculpted chin bar and ridge along lower edge of shell to improve structural integrity. Provides a stronger shell near the opening where it is needed as well as lowers the Center of Gravity. Rise in shell above the shoulders for added clearance.
