What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Arai GP-6S Black Frost Large
  • I have owned a number of helmets, Shoei, Suomy, Scorpion, HJC, the list goes on. This is my first Arai, I am definitely pleased with the quality and fitment. No complaints here, may be my next one will be Carbon.
  • I have a hard time finding comfortable helmets that fit my tiny odd shaped head .then I discovered arai beautifully constructed love the shape of the shell and the visor opening most helmets look huge on me this one couldn't fit better there is a reason arai is the best find this out for yourself.
  • This is my second Aria helmet and the quality and materials used by Aria are 1st rate.
