The Arai VX-Pro 3 Helmets and Arai VX-Pro 4 Helmets set the standard other dirt helmets aspire to.
What the magazines have to say:
Dirt Rider: "What we really think about when we put on a helmet are safety and confdence. And every one of us feels that when wearing an Arai … Rating: 95";
Motocross Action: "The MXA wrecking crew had never given a helmet a fve-star rating. Now we have. This is the best helmet ever tested." 5/5 Stars
Cycle News: "The VX-Pro (DC) was already considered by many, including us, as the off-road helmet by which all others should be judged, but, somehow, Arai found ways to improve upon it with the new VX-Pro3 helmet."
Arai VX-Pro 3 Features:
Peak Design: The PRO3 ’s radical peak design actually scavenges and forces more air into the forehead vent-ports for improved cooling, wh at the same time using multiple relief-por to reduce “bucketing” at higher speeds. (Under-peak “forehead” vent-ports are another much-copied Arai innovation.)
Chinbar Forward Tilt: The VX-PRO³ has been redesigned with an additional 11mm of forward tilt in the upper chinbar nose area, giving you more room and a more open feeling while retaining the VX-Series’ minimized protrusion.
Emergency Cheekpad Release System: From Arai’s decades-long commitment to building helmets that do more for rider comes this major innovation: the very frst Emergency Release Cheekpad design created specifcally for motorcycle helmets. Developed to allow easier access to an injured rider, the Arai VX-PRO 3 ’s cheekpads slide out easily via the integrated pull-tabs built into the underside of the cheekpad - making helmet removal much easier for trained medical personnel.
Top-Mount Ventilation Diffuser: The PRO3 is the frst dirt helmet with our diffuser ventilation system. (Arai introduced the frst diffuser-mounted motorcycle helmet on our original RX-7 road-race model – an innovation that’s now one of our most-copied features.)
Interior: The head comfort liner and cheekpads are fully- removable, washable and replaceable. They use Arai’s exclusive Dry- Cool ® material for superior heat transfer and drying time – making washing or swapping liners between motos a snap. A removable/ washable/replaceable chinstrap cover completes Arai’s total package of interior washability.
Rounded Chinbar: Arai’s VX Series’ dirt helmets have a unique rounded chinbar shape with less protrusion, making it less likely to catch and dig in during a spill than. The oval form is based on the egg, long known for its extremely-strong and effcient shape.
