These outstanding features are found with ALL Arai Helmets:

b>Shell Construction
Arai’s decades of experience, research, testing, comparison and evaluation has concluded that fiberglass-based construction is ideal for performing a helmet shell’s main job – dispersing impact energy over the widest area through
strength, structural integrity and impact flexibility (although Arai’s R&D study and testing of alternative shell technologies is always ongoing). The shell utilizes our proprietary aerospace fiberglass to achieve an exceptionally
strong, flexible, yet lightweight shell.

Brow-Vent Channeling
Brow-vent inner ducts redirect incoming air to the temples instead of the forehead, and around the ear area (missed by many helmet ventilation systems). The stale air is then extracted out the side exhaust cowls. The airflow over the temple artery reportedly also helps cool the blood flow to the brain area. This simple repurposing of two existing vent features greatly improves helmet performance and rider comfort.

Patented Dual-Pivot Chinvent
This easy-to-operate, two-position dual-pivot hinge mechanism allows for increased chinvent airflow capacity to two areas: the first position directs air to the face through an activated carbon-coated foam filter; the second sends the air to the faceshield to aid defogging.

Unique Cheekpad Design
The cheekpad design allows for the pads to be removed and cleaned more easily.
They can also be replaced with one of our optional pads of different thicknesses for a more custom fit (another Arai innovation that’s now copied by many other helmet makers). “Customized” cheekpads with a finer made-just-for-you fit are another result of the decades of commitment to every nuance of rider comfort by Arai people.

Removable, Washable Liner
Another Arai innovation first introduced in the late ‘80s, our fully removable, washable, and replaceable interior comfort-liner components also permit micro-fitting of a helmet in between- size scenarios.

One-Piece Liner
Arai’s EPS liner is like no other, comprised of several material densities molded into a single piece. Arai pioneered this technology more than 20 years ago and is still, to our knowledge, the only helmet offering this liner
and its unique benefit: the direct-fused contact area that each EPS cell shares with its neighboring cells creates a mutual support. As one is crushed under impact, the surrounding cells assist with the energy absorption. (Liner
pieces that are simply fitted or glued together cannot rely on such a high-level support bond.)

LRS Shield Removal
Watch racers Nicky Hayden and Kenny Roberts, Jr. swap Arai faceshields on video while wearing their helmets and you’ll see for yourself how easy Arai’s LRS tool-less system really is.

Extreme peripheral view
Arai’s 10 mm wider eyeport (5 mm each side) enhances peripheral vision for a better view of the world around you. Also gives you a feeling of “openness” inside the helmet. It uses Arai’s SAI faceshield that fits so flush it almost looks like a continuation of the shell.
