CK-6 Youth Helmet
The CK-6 is specially made for junior Kart drivers up to 15-years old. It meets the SNELL CMR 2016 regulations. Valid in CIK-FIA international karting class. The lightweight CK-6 features a SFL outer shell and both outer and inner shell are specially developed for a perfect fit on childrens heads. Four ventilation ducts on top of the helmet with effective ventilation slots in the chin piece.
The Snell-FIA CMH (Childrens Motorsport Helmet) approval was developed to provide a suitable helmet for children to use in motorsports, rather than starting with a helmet designed for the adult head (and neck)and shrink down to kid sizes.
The primary reason in doing this was for safety as a reduction in helmet weight will help to lessen the chance of neck injury following an incident.
With two world, one European and five British karting championships won in 2008 by Arai users, the Japanese factory has worked closely with the FIA and Snell to produce its first ever extra, extra small (XXS) motorsport helmet. Young drivers can be assured of an original Arai CMH approved helmet with all the features unique to the brand
The CK-6 includes a 4-point inlet/exhaust ventilation system with a dual chin vent, multi-density hybrid inner shell and a Coolmax washable lining. Filling the 90mm aperture is a 2mm thick visor complete with tear off posts and utilizing Arais advanced visor pivot system.
