ARAI HELMETS & ACCESSORIES
While there are indeed a lot of helmets out there, there is still only one Arai.
The Arai name and reputation has been forged over three generations and is still family-owned. Arai was started over 60 years ago by Mr Hirotake Arai; a custom hat maker who rode motorcycles back in the 1930s.
Every Arai helmet is virtually 100% handmade. But the obsession goes even deeper than that. Every Arai helmet must go through three separate quality-control departments: one after the shell is made; one after painting and graphic completion; and one after assembly. This attention to detail isn't performed on every hundredth helmet, or every tenth one, but every single Arai helmet.
You can't always see the reasons why an Arai feels better, but they're there: lower weight from aerospace fiberglass-based construction; a lower center of gravity for better balance and less strain; softer single-piece multiple-density liners (whose technology still hasn't been able to be copied in almost 20 years). Ventilation systems that work in the real world, not just in drawings. A helmet with no "minor" parts. And the result is major: you just feel good. You want to keep riding.
Arai alone has the experience, passion and attention to detail that sets them apart. As a result of Arai's dedication to excellence their helmets go above and beyond world safety standards. Spend the money today on an Arai; your life is worth it.
