Arai has just unveiled its new mid-level Profile-V helmet to the world – ahead of it going on sale next month. Designed to welcome riders to the Arai, the Japanese brand reckons the new Profile-V offers plush comfort, top level protection – while being easy to take on and off too.
Priced from £379.99 for a plain colour scheme, going up to £459.99 for a graphic design, Arai’s brand-new helmet sits just above the iconic Japanese brands lowest priced Debut lid in its extensive line-up. But as you’d expect, it’s no budget helmet. It’s stylish and sophisticated in equal measure, blending tried and tested technology with an immediately identifiable, undeniably Arai aesthetic.
Getting into specific, the Profile-V makes use of a strong outer shell, which works to glance off on impact while maintaining its integrity. It also comes with a softer one-piece multi-density EPS inner liner to absorb and spread impact energy. There are also, dual intake vents, brow vents and a 3-way chin vent – in addition to five exhausts to remove air. There’s a VAS-V MAX vision visor which is Pinlock ready, and a semi-removable interior which features Facial Contour System (FCS) and speaker pockets.
We’ve managed to get a new Arai Profile-V in on test, so once we’ve got a few miles under our belt with the new lid, we’ll bring you a full review. First impressions are very positive though. It’s stylish, comfortable and seemingly very safe. Keep your eyes out for the full write up in the not too distant future.
