Arai entered the world of motorcycle helmets in 1952 having already had a great deal of experience with making military helmets dating back to the 30s. They've been an industry leader in motorcycle helmet safety and safety research since the 70s. Tried and tested by both casual and professional riders and drivers, there's a reason they're so well trusted when it comes to protection. They make some of the best helmets on the market, and are one of few brands trusted with the extremely high specs required by F1. To this day, their helmets are meticulously put together by hand at their factory in Japan, and are truly some of the best out there. The Rapide (or Concept-X in Europe) is their first foray into the retro motorcycle helmet world, and it's a great looking helmet.
