When a rider is in need of a trustworthy helmet that looks great, Arai is one of first companies they will turn to. The new Defiant Chopper Helmet keeps true to the Arai name, including a stylish design, innovative technology and a number of safety features in the company's famous handmade helmets.
Here are some of the noteworthy features to this new helmet:
- Flatter shape in the front of the helmet so it rests
comfortably on the chin.
- The shape also minimizes shaking of the head inside the helmet
and is optimized for wind buffeting.
- The interior headliners are machine washable and can be peeled
away to ensure proper fitting.
- Vents throughout promote air circulation. The chin vent is
adjustable, so riders can choose to funnel air to their whole face
or just let flow more toward their chin and mouth.
Arai announced the release of Defiant Chopper Helmet, along with
their [mageProductLink sku="381-0479" title="Arai Pro Shade
System"]Pro Shade System[/mageProductLink], a flip-down, tinted
face shield that installs into the Defiant Chopper Helmet. Riders
have the option to flip the Pro Shade System up or down, as it
works great to block out the sun. It's also easy to remove with a
quick release system that snaps on and off.

On The Heels Of The VX-Pro 4 Release
A couple of months ago Arai announced its [mageProductLink

off-road helmet[/mageProductLink]. The company updated the chin
bar, improved ventilation and made updates to the interior.
"The Arai VX-Pro3 has been one of the most acclaimed off-road helmets available," said Brian Weston, managing director of Arai. "With its improved features, updated design and legendary Arai focus on rider protection, we're confident the new VX-Pro4 will only build on that tradition."

How The Competition Stacks Up
Choosing a helmet can be a challenge with so many options. But that
means a rider can find a product that is tailored to their specific
needs. While Arai brings plenty to the table, riders often find
themselves comparing the company to Schuberth
Priding itself on aerodynamics, Schuberth uses it own wind and acoustic tunnels to test its helmets. It prides itself for producing "the smallest, lightest and quietist flip-up helmet in the world," according to the company website. Its SR1 technology is what Schuberth says is the first true racing helmet for motorcycle sports.
Both Arai and Schuberth offer great options for riders, and comparing their many features is a great way to find the product they want.
