An Arai doesn't feel good for just an hour or two. It's made to feel good all day - and to keep feeling good for years, long after cheap helmets have become loose and shabby. You can't always see the reasons why, but they're there: lower weight from proprietary aerospace fiberglass, superb scratch-resistant faceshield, lower center of gravity for better balance and less strain, softer single-piece multiple-density liners (whose technology has still not been able to be copied in almost 20 years), ventilation systems that work in the real world, not just in drawings. There are no "minor" parts of an Arai helmet. Even the parts you will never see are subjected to the same attention, simply because we can see them. The result is profound: you feel good. You want to keep riding - and that's why we build our helmets the way we do.
