One of the best known helmet manufacturers in the world, Arai have been handcrafting motorcycle helmets for over 60 years and are well known for their commitment to safety in motorcycle helmets. This refusal to compromise on safety has led them to be one of the most respected helmet manufacturers the world over and worn by racers in every series, from Maverick Vinales to Ian Hutchinson to Josh Brookes.

Arai practice an active position on ‘Glancing Off’, which enhances the safety aspect of the helmet. Impact energy transferal to within the helmet can be minimized by keeping the helmet moving, which is why Arai opt for a round, smooth shell with all their helmets. This round shell allows for sliding and scrubs off the energy that would otherwise be transferred within the helmet to the rider and will ‘glance off’ obstacles on the road’s surface with less rotational force than other helmets, meaning less impact energy and less unnatural movement when sliding, as the helmet does not dig in or snag on the road surface.
All Arai helmets are subjected to Arai’s in-house testing procedure, going above and beyond the mandatory testing procedures required by safety bodies such as ECE 22:05. These in-house tests include a penetration test which involves a 3kg test cone being dropped from a height of 3 metres onto the helmet, testing the strength and resilience of the helmet shell.
Each of our Arai helmets are checked and packaged with the greatest of care by our dedicated team, and you'll even receive a text message and email to notify you of the hour in which it will be delivered to your door.
