What's this?

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.  

Features:

  • Pro Shade System for dual sun-blocking capabilities
  • Eco-Pure Liner is anti-microbial
  • Ear pockets have been redesigned to better accept communication speakers for a more comfortable fit
  • Internals are redesigned with a focus on safety and comfort
  • Organic shell shape for superb energy management
  • IC-4 Upper Intake vents seal more completely when closed
  • ACR-4 flow thru exhaust vent allows greater air flow when open and reduces drag when closed
  • FCS R (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design has 5mm peel away micro fit layer for greater personal fit
  • Cheek pads feature contoured shape, multiple density foam layer supported by a patented spring
  • Shell shape is easier to put on and take off than previous helmets
  • Water repellent material along bottom edge
  • Pull down spoiler works with new flared bottom to increase helmet stability
  • SAI Max Vision Brow Vent Pinlock anti-fog lens insert included
  • DOT and Snell 2015 certified

Note: Cheek pads are Ecopure fabric only.

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.

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.

My very first Arai
This is my very first high-end helmet which I bought due to the fact that it is suggested as Arai's naked-sport bike helmet

Just like any Arai the built-quality is top notch and fits my round head comfortably, the visor offers plenty of view, the Mimetic paint scheme was not my favorite but receives plenty of compliments, ventilation of this helmet is one of the best particularly its mouth vent and if only the top vents work as good as the Corsair V this helmet will be the best vented helmet ever, aerodynamically speaking the R75 shape may not be the smoothest but in terms of protection I do believe that the rounder is better

Several gripes regarding this helmet includes the chin curtain which is too short and offers no wind protection from beneath, the back end of the helmet constantly rub against my riding jacket which is a big hassle especially during long rides as it create neck fatigue.

However my biggest gripe is the Proshade system, when positioned upward it creates head-shake during high speed and it blocks the brow vents, the dark visor should be longer especially on the side, and the dark visor' bottom end scratches the clear visor. Absolutely worthless!

Can the Pro Shade system be removed? Also does this helmet use the standard Defiant shield? Thanks.

What is the color of the solid stripe around the face shield - is it hi-viz yellow or more like a kawasaki green?
Juan G on Feb 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Just received my Defiant Mimetic and the green is much darker than it appears in the picture. Much more Kawasaki than hi-viz.
IS this different then the other Defiants besides the Faceshield and paint job?
