Arai is, unquestionably, one of the most famous brands in the motorcycling. The company started making helmets in 1926. Today the company is still family owned and family run in Japan with the founder's son Mitch Arai running the company. Arai's heritage and history is in racing helmets but the company also make what is considered the best adventure helmet which is the newly released Arai Tour-X5.
Few would question the assertion that Arai makes the best quality and safest helmets on the market. They are beautifully put together by hand in Aria's own factory in Japan, using only the highest grade materials and components, by skilled workers. Each helmet takes 18 man-hours to make and will be quality checked five times during the manufacturing process. The final products are tested in house to a higher standard that other helmets.
Arai was the pioneer in developing helmets that can withstand oblique-angled impacts, reducing the rotational forces that can cause irreparable damage to the brain. It is because of this that Arai has such round shells and tend to be a little larger and heavier than other brands.
