Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise Mimetic Helmet

Designed specifically for the aesthetics and needs of street fighter and naked bike riders but with the added functionality of a built-in sun shade, the Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise Helmet is aggressive and feature rich as one would expect from any Arai helmet. The Defiant Pro-Cruise Helmet expands the functionality of the first generation Arai Defiant Helmets by adding the Arai Pro Shade system, which operates as both a peak and as a sun shade. The Pro Shade System is a small peak that is locked in position. Unlocking is easy; just pull the Pro Shade System forward, then it can be flipped down with a flick of the hand to act as an effective sun-visor. 

Based on the fit and comfort of the Quantum, the Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise 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 Pro-Cruise Helmet 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 Pro-Cruise Mimetic Helmet 4.5 5 2 2
Excellent high-end helmet So much more comfortable than the sub $200 helmets I was used to. Better ventilation (although it's not a miracle worker - it's a full face, and it's going to hold some heat in). With that added ventilation comes some extra noise, so I can't say it eliminates the need for earplugs. Interior is very soft and comfortable. Fits my big, round melon better than anything else I've tried. Feels light on my head. Fit and finish are top notch, and it looks great. Visor removal is a bit.....weird. It's an Arai thing, and I've been told I'll get better at it over time. Very easy to install a Harley headset - the recesses for earphones will handle some pretty big ones. The external sun visor/tinted shield is a bit of a compromise - it looks cool, and keeps the helmet thinner than using an internal visor. But it only covers part of the face. I'm okay with that, but some folks might find the line between the bottom of the tinted part and the clear visor below to be annoying. I highly recommend this helmet to anyone with a roundish head who wants a helmet he can wear all day long. May 19, 2015
Looks great but not the upgrade I thought it be My first helmet was the matte Black icon Armada helmet. After upgrading my bike and buying the Zx10R (from the Ninja 300), I wanted something that matches the carbon/neon green look and decided on this helmet. While the helmet looks amazing, the black visor looks great, the helmet is just...underwhelming. It looks great, it is comfortable it's just not as GREAT as I thought it be. I have read in some places however that this helmet design was designed for the upright rider so maybe it was a bad choice for the Zx10, no idea. I put that I wouldn't recommend it but I'd take my review with a grain of salt. Maybe someone else will think different so I guess it's all up to the individual. March 20, 2015
