Arai Defiant Chopper Helmet

Designed specifically for the aesthetics and needs of street fighter and naked bike rider in mind, the new Arai Defiant Chopper is equally aggressive and feature rich, as one would expect from a new Arai helmet. Based on the fit and comfort of the Quantum, the Defiant was built for the upright riding position with its aggressive, integrated chin spoiler, which was designed specifically to guide wind around the neck and to improve the aerodynamic properties of the helmet. The Hyper Ridge Bumper circles the bottom of the shell both adding additional strength and also lowering the helmet's center of gravity, while flaring the helmet opening slightly to increase the ease of putting on, and taking off.

The Arai Defiant utilizes Arai's latest faceshield design, the SAI Max Vision Pinlock Shield with Brow Vents and includes Pinlock insert lens. The SAI Max Vision shield has been widened by 5mm left and right and offers one of the widest eyeports available for excellent peripheral vision.

Arai Defiant Chopper Helmet 4.7 5 141 141
simply, i love it everything as expected, slightly large, great material, good locks, and really light and comfy I highly recommend it April 20, 2016
Favorite Helmet I've owned three Arai Helmets. This one is my favorite. I find it fits great, is very comfortable, and relatively quiet. I love the pro shade and visor. The ventilation is excellent also. Style wise, I was a little turned off by the "wing" on the rear but have gotten used to it. I'd highly recommend it. April 17, 2016
Awesome helmet! This helmet is great. The fit and finish is excellent. I was deciding between this and a Schuberth C3 Pro however this seemed to fit me better. It's not the lightest helmet I've tried but it's certainly not heavy by any means. The plush padding and inside make the helmet so comfortable to wear even on long rides. It's pretty quiet and the Pro Shade system is truly functional. I'm by no means a speed demon but I can say up to 90mph it remains still without vibration and noise. I'd certainly recommend this product! April 16, 2016
Great Helmet Noob to the motorcycle world, wanted to do it the right way starting with gear and wow what a great helmet the attention to detail with all the air flow and pinlock design are outstanding. I removed a layer of the cheek pad to better fit my face and it was very easy to do so. Arai rocks! Expensive but worth every penny. April 6, 2016
Helmet gets noticed. Love the black & white scheme with a touch of red. Compliments my bike. Airflow is great. Cools around the temple. Gets noisy at highway speeds, but I have ear plugs, so it's not an issue. Fits perfectly, and with Arai, the pads are adjustable if you really want to fine tune and tailor the fit. Vents are easily adjustable and accessible with the left-hand. Inner mirror fogs up a bit. I've installed the anti-fog pin lock, and don't have an issue but at night, there's some light distortion, but you get used to it and becomes a non issue. Would highly recommend this product. April 6, 2016
nice, comfortable helmet This is my second Arai helmet. All of the adjustments for air flow work great. It stays quiet until about 85 mph, then gets quite loud. Other than that, it fits great and is very comfortable. April 5, 2016
Best Helmet I've Owned Wow, I've never coughed up the money for a true top of the line helmet, but this was more than worth it. Pros: Style Comfort - Soft and light, with very little wind drag Noise level - It is quiet, but I would still recommend wearing ear plugs above 55mph, it is not silent. Air Flow - Air flow is great, but the helmet is much louder with the vents open. Cons- Visor is a little intimidating to remove/replace Chin strap can be difficult to clip The cons say it all. This is a great helmet, I've been wearing it for 3 months now and I've never looked back or regretted my purchase. I highly recommend this product. March 29, 2016
Nice fit that's what got me. Fits great. The vents do a real good job of keeping you cool. But over 40 this helmet gets pretty darn loud. I ride with earplugs but it's still way louder then my last $50 helmet. :( oh well can't return it once you find this flaw. Bummer for me. March 10, 2016
