to slide easily and glance off
objects to transfer the least
impact energy to the wearer, so
they are round, smooth, and free
of angles and ridges.
The latest VX-Pro3 is a
combination of Arai’s proven
safety and fit engineering,
with subtle advances like a
more roomy chin bar/nose area
with a closeable chin bar vent
gate that does not protrude more
than previous versions. The chin bar
is rounded and protrudes less than on
most helmets to make it less likely to
catch or dig in a crash.

Breakthroughs in safety and, in some cases, lower prices too!
Arai has been a leader in helmet
design, safety and technology for
more than 75 years, and most of the
innovations introduced by Arai—like
dual-density EPS, a choice of interior
shapes for a custom fit, breakaway
visor screws, the emergency cheek-pad release system that reduces the
chance of injury when removing the
helmet, and many more—have been
adopted by other helmet companies.
Though Arai is a leading innovator, it
resists trends and will not compromise
safety engineering for fashion, so all
Arai helmets are hand-made using
laminated aerospace-grade fiberglass, a material Arai claims distributes impact energy and resists penetration better than other materials.

Helmet styles are changing all the time. Helmet tech- nology, on the other hand, hasn’t changed much at all in the last few years. The truth is, helmets
with laminated or polycarbonate shells and expanded-polystyrene (EPS) energy-absorbing liners work incredibly well—so well that it has been tough to come up with
something that performs better and weighs less. However,
there have finally been some breakthroughs. Here’s a look
at the latest and greatest ways to ride safe and look cool.
