Head Size

How to Measure
To find the right helmet size, measure all the way round your head at the widest point. Keep the tape measure above your ears and make sure that the tape measure is not too tight, nor too loose. Take your measurement in centimeters (cm), not inches.
 
Checking for Best Fit
When a new helmet is first worn, it should actually be slightly tight, with the interior coming into contact with most of the head, but not so restrictive that it causes any pain. There should be no "hot spots" - places where the helmet's interior puts pressure on specific points of the skull or face - but it should not move around freely. With time, a helmet will adjust to match the shape of the rider's head as it is worn and goes through "break-in" and loosens up a little. However, it should never become loose enough to easily turn from side to side.
  • Put the helmet on - it should be a little tight as it goes on over the head
  • The helmet should sit on the head evenly with the eye port's upper edge sitting just above the eyebrows and have good peripheral vision available to see side-to-side
  • Try putting a finger between the helmet interior and the head. If it easily fits, a smaller size should be tried next. Note that some helmet models allow for the cheek pads to be changed out for better fitment, so consider this too when checking for proper sizing

PRODUCT DETAILS

Features

Outer Shell Construction Pb-Clc2
•Arai’s Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction greatly increases shell strength and flexibility while maintaining low weight and a lower centre of gravity. Positioned across the top of the eye port, this band contributes to the use of a thinner EPS liner which greatly enhances the upward field of view. A specially designed “mechanically expanded fibre mat”, sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of Arai’s proprietary Super Fibre Laminates, is used to reinforce and bond these two Super Fibre layers without adding significant weight to the helmet.

Urban-V Ventilation System
•Air enters through 3 forehead channels, flows over the head pulling away heat as it exits via 3 holes in the EPS liner into the hidden multistage exhaust channel and pulled out through the neckroll Venturi vacuum exhaust ports.

Ventilation: Hidden Multi-Stage Air Channel
•Allows hot air to be pulled out of the helmet through 3 holes in the EPS liner to the Twin Venturi Exhaust ports.

Front Ventilation: Interior Integrated Intake Channels
•Borrowed from our racing heritage, 3 intake channels integrated in the interior of the forehead area, allow fresh air to enter the helmet and flow more easily to the crown.

Rear Ventilation: Twin Venturi Exhaust Ports
•Once hot air enters the hidden multi-stage air channel in the EPS liner, it is pulled out by the low pressure created by the Venturi exhaust ports.

Interior: Antimicrobial Liner Material
•Helps maintain neutral acidity levels close to human skin and antibacterial consumption. With the aim of a softer, deeper and even more comfortable fit we developed a softer liner frame material. The liner also has adjustable temple padding that allows for a customized fit.

Interior: Replaceable Cheek Pads/Ear Cups
•Depending on the model, cheek pads, ear cups or the complete interior may be easily removed. All parts (replaceable or not) can be cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse well after cleaning and never dry in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Interior parts in different size thickness are available for a custom fit for every rider.

Interior: Speaker Pockets
•Build in communication systems are popular, but the problem is often that the room for a speaker is limited or just not present, causing unpleasant pressure points. The speaker pockets, offering room for mounting speakers without effecting comfort or fit. (Speaker not included).

Interior: Split-Crown Pad
•Guides the airflow from the inside of the helmet, through the helmet’s interior to the hidden multi-stage air channel.

Approval: Ece 22-05
•The most common helmet certification internationally, required by over 50 countries worldwide.

General: Five Times Inspected
•Each Arai helmet goes through five separate quality-control depart­ments: after the shell is made, after painting and graphic completion, after assembly and two in-process inspections.

General: Washable Interior
•The premium quality interior of any Arai helmet can be easily cleaned, in place, with mild soap and lukewarm water.

General: Handmade
•It can take up to five years for our experts to earn the right to create an Arai shell. Each shell can take up to 27 steps and to build one Arai helmet will take about 18 man-hours.

General: All-Day Comfort
•All-day comfort with the Arai interior fit and shape together with the finest liner materials and the extensive ventilation system. And thanks to the perfect balance and weight distribution of the helmet, you hardly notice you are wearing an Arai.

General: Penetration Tested
•All Arai helmets are penetration tested, although not required by European helmet standards. The Arai penetration test is performed with a 3kg test cone that strikes from a height of 3m on the helmet.

General: Double-D Ring Device
•The flat and D-shaped rings fit smooth against the chin. No moving parts, no corrosion problems and just pulling the tab is enough to loosen the fastener.

General: Smooth Shape, Better Protection
•The smooth outer shell of Arai helmets is designed to glide without unnecessary resistance. You don’t want to decelerate your helmet more than necessary. That’s why all Arai vents and ducts are designed to break off during an impact.

General: Strong Outer Shell, Soft Inner Shell
•Arai uses a very hard outer shell to spread impact forces and a soft inner shell to absorb remaining energy. The multiple-density EPS inner shell is made using a unique technology of combining three to five densities in various areas as a single component.

General: Organic Shape
•The organic shape of an Arai outer shell offers a more natural appearance, seals better and conforms more to the head’s natural shape for improved comfort, fit and to help minimize wind turbulence.

General: 5-Year Limited Warranty
•All Arai helmets are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship, and are serviceable only for the properly fitted first user for 5 years from date of first use, but no more than 7 years from date of manufacture.

General: Different Outer Shells
•Unlike many other manufacturers Arai provides one size outer shell for each two-helmet sizes for most models. Together with different shaped outer shells for different models it is almost impossible not to find the fit you are looking for.

General: Arai In-House Test
•This Arai helmet is designed to meet the stringent Arai In-house criteria, in addition to the mandatory ECE 22-05 standard.
