Arai Motorcycle Helmets
All the Latest
Arai Helmets are renowned as the world's best motorcycle helmet. Every
Arai helmet is virtually 100% handmade. As each helmet is constructed,
the craftsman will sign the shell. Throughout the construction process,
every single helmet is hand inspected at least three times. Yes that's
right, not every hundreth helmet, or even every tenth helmet - every
As with the other feartures in the
section on motorcycle gear, I have made a personal selection of 3 Arai
motorcycle helmets, A model from the top of the range, a value for
selection and an alternative, which in most cases is an open
helmet. If you dont agree with my selections, dont worry! you can find
the full range of Arai motorcycle helmets right here
of the range: Arai Sinister Motorcycle Helmet
This is one great
looking helmet! Snell M2005 & AS1698 approved, A completely new
shell & distinctively hyper-ridge reinforcement band
The overall helmet shape is "organic": narrow, sleeker and more
aerodynamic to feel more calm in the wind.
J-type side pods have a lower profile and more closely match
the shape of the shell to provide a much cleaner, aerodynamic look and
Lower centre of gravity and a Super complex laminate

for money: Arai Quantum II Motorcycle Helmet
Quantum-2, represented the most sweeping changes they made to
their best-selling helmet since the Quantum/f model was introduced in
2000. Nine major upgrades and changes to be exact. Now, most companies
wouldn't touch their best seller, but Arai isn't most companies - and
their R&D staff never sleeps.
Inside, the Quantum-2's main feature is its washable, fully-removable
liner. It also has a redesigned comfort liner which Arai says "pays
increased attention to comfort by repositioning and adding interior
padding, providing a level of comfort that could previously only be
found in a full, non-removale liner". Removeable chinstrap covers that
allow dirty covers to be easily removed for cleaning (and damaged
covers to be replaced easily) and a breathguard design also borrowed
from the Corsair, complete the interior changes.

Face helmet: Arai SZ-Ram III Motorcycle Half Helmet
This helmet offers
probably the most protection of any helmet that is not a full face
helmet. some of the features include:
The penetration test of falling the 3kg cone test striker through a
height of 300cm is conducted, although it is not required by European
Fibreglass shells are strong and lightweight ensuring excellent wearer
MULTIPLE-DENSITY FOAM EPS LINER
Arai's unique technology of giving multiple different densities to the
liner as a single component instead of assembling several different
density liners to make the final part.
Enables a more enveloping fit toward the bottom opening allowing
improved streamlining and a smarter appearance at the same time.
Reinforcement at the bottom of the outer shell for more strength,
including the area around the rear exhaust vents.
Diffusers and ventilation ducts are integrated into the outer shell for
a smooth helmet surface.
Aerodynamically shaped, optically correct pre-formed visors for better
vision and UV ray protection, with less distortion.
