WHY AN ARAI HELMET IS DIFFERENT FROM THE REST
Arai is leading in innovative helmet technology. If you’re looking for a new helmet, you might be asking yourself: can there really be that much difference between one brand and another these days? And if so, haven’t any differences that do exist become pretty slim? The answers are Yes. And No. The simple truth is, while there are indeed a lot of helmets out there, there is still only one Arai. Our technology, but also our philosophy and our passion is what makes us truly different. Here you find a selection of the background of not only our technology, but also the philosophy and the passion that drives us in making the best helmet possible
WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES ARAI SUCH AN OUTSTANDING HELMET?
Is it the three generations of family driven to producing the best helmet possible? Or maybe the fact that every Arai helmet is almost 100% handmade, the pride of our craftsmen or our own ”in-house” test standard? It can take up to five years to earn the right to create an Arai shell. Each shell can take up to 27 steps and each step must be perfect. That is what separates us from other helmet makers: the pride and care we bring to what we do. Maybe you have still some questions left, we offer you the answers here.
WHY DOESN’T ARAI MAKE ITS HELMETS COMPLETELY SOUNDPROOF?
Hearing the traffic around you is important. With these sounds you can determine the position, speed and direction of other vehicles in traffic. Arai has deliberately designed an inner shell and liner with enough space around the ears, not only for added comfort, but also to ensure that traffic sound is not completely filtered out.
The R75 concept
R75 may sound complex, but it very basic at its roots: A simple tool allows everyone to visualize and easily understand for themselves. The R75 gauge demonstrates how Arai strives to maintain the R75 radius wherever possible. Move the gauge around the shell surface, as long as the two ends of the gauge are touching the surface, the shell conforms the R75 shape concept.
It’s not something most standards demand. It’s something ARAI demands.
