Arai created the first original adventure helmet and over the years they’ve refined the design into their current XD4, a premium off-road and street use option that’s widely accepted as one of the best dual sport helmets available in regards to both safety and functionality.
Built on a composite fiberglass shell that has an intermediate head shape, DOT and Snell ratings, and only 3.6 pounds of weight, the XD4 focuses on providing an excellent base to build features into. Features include the flip down visor with its integrated vent ports and the adjustable peak, both of which are entirely removable. And with a high quality shell maximizing safety, Arai is able to pack more comfort lining and padding in places that would otherwise be taken up by safety oriented materials.
The XD4 has plenty of intake ports (with many of the ports on the chin bar being dedicated open/non-closing) and exhaust ports so air stays fresh when you’re working hard on the bike, and the dual chimney vents have a unique lever actuation that’s really convenient.
With a large amount of safety, versatility, and comfort the Arai XD4 Motorcycle Helmet ends up being a nearly perfect 50/50 helmet for adventure riders that split their time equally between dirt and asphalt.
