Arai Motorcycle Helmets
arai HELMETS

Seastar Superbikes in 2012 added Arai to its already strong Helmet portfolio. Why Arai? Arai Helmets are handcrafted with pride in Japan (each helmet taking approx. 18 hours to build) and as a company come with a very individual view to what a motorcycle helmet should be capable of.

Their undeniable focus is on their own Arai standards that take the most strenuous areas of Snell (USA Standards), EC2205 and Sharp testing and make them more rigorous. Particular attention is paid to repeat impact and penetration testing of ALL areas of the helmet where this is certainly not the case with 2205 and Sharp.

The shells are produced from multi fibre layers, concentrating on more rigidity in the areas that our skulls have less rigidity. The strength of a basic empty Arai helmet shell is incomparable to others in the market place, every Arai shell utilises the hyper ridge re-inforcement band that circles the skirt of the shell. Although this generally leads to a slightly heavier helmet, the attention that has been paid to the balance of the helmet over the human neck makes this a plus point rather than a negative.

The multiple density inner liner is produced from varying sizes of polystyrene balls that offer much softer impact zones where the skull is soft and harder, where our bone is thicker.

Specific DNA Centres such as Seastar Superbikes have been set up. We have undertaken Arai training in the Netherlands to be fully versed in the correct tailor fitment, maintenance and repair of all Arai motorcycle helmets.

With a minimum of 3 shell sizes per model, the overall size of the helmet remains minimalistic which is important in order to keep wind resistance down to a minimum.

A large factor in the comfort of Arai helmets is the attention to ventilation and wind flow. The air is not only directed through the shell to the head in muliple areas, but is also used as a stabilising force with the use of external tunnels and spoilers.

Take a close look at the line up at the next Isle of Man TT - close to 80% of the racers wear Arai. This speaks volumes for both the comfort and peace of mind that the quality of Arai offers.

All Arai helmets come "Pinlock Ready" as a mimimum. (Pinlock is an additional visor insert that acts as double glazing for the visor that erradicates visor steaming).

Arai helmets need to be worn to be believed. Why not browse our Arai reviews below or see our prices, designs and buy Arai helmets online. Alternatively visit us in person to see our extensive range of motorcycle helmets and get our specialist Arai trained staff to fit and advise on purchasing your new Arai.
