To be honest, I got this helmet more based on its looks than its specs. I’ve worn Arais for the past six years and never once have I questioned their performance. Maybe the visor changing system isn’t the smoothest of operations, but that aside, they really are awesome lids. I guess the big difference with my using of this helmet and my Arais before it is that with the above, most of the time I’ve worn it for road use, as opposed


to track. And it’s fair to say it’s done me a great service. It’s not the quietest of lids, but it offers a decent level of comfort, great ventilation and a fantastic peripheral view. In short, it’s all that you’d ask from a racing helmet, yet it deals with everyday road riding equally well. On occasion, I’ve found it a doddle to remove, clean and replace the helmet padding, as and when needed. Consequently, the helmet’s still in top condition and probably good for another few years of use and abuse. It may be a little more pricy than the average helmet, but it does wonders for peace of mind.
