An extremley functional, light and attractive helmet. Ordered the frost black; its black with a nice dark sparkle in the sun, looks nice. The huge contoured windsheild leaves you with an extremley wide range of view. Allthough i would like to have a tinted windsheild; the visor/peak does an extremley well job in blocking out the sun. It has alot of windflow and the intakes are huge, ive had small gnats gets sucked in, they just vent out the bottom. All in all the helmet is Amazing, if you're looking for a great dual sport style helmet that has alot of hidden features then this is the helmet for you. Worth every penny

This helmets finish is top notch. The paint looks great. Unlike other helmets the features that this helmet has actually work. The shield defog setting works great, better then the "antifog" chemicals on other shields. The peak does pull a little at speed (55) but it isn't anything major and I haven't felt like it was preventing me from looking where I wanted to look.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a great looking and fitting helmet I use on my quad that allows use of the shield as well as goggles. It has many great features like multiple vents and easy to clean pads. It fit tight but smaller cheek pads can be ordered (very pricey) that made it fit perfect.

I purchased a small Aria XD-3 Hi-Viz Yellow helmet a few weeks ago and can not wait for the weather to warm up so I can take it for a test ride. The fit is extremely comfortable though the check pads may require adjustments. The finish of this Arai helmet is impeccable, all features work/snap/click/flip with positive feedback that is expected of a high-end premium product. I anticipate the protection/durability and airflow (which I did not rate) to be excellent; I will try to update this review after some riding time... Overall, Arai helmets are significantly more expensive than other less-premium helmets but the value you get is noticeable the second you get it out of the box. Highly recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I really liked the way the helmet looked and appreciated the added visibility it would give me. Upon receipt I was very impressed with the helmet. Everything on it is at a level of quality I have not owned before. The fit of the shield stood out, as did the quality and ease of operation of the vents. Although I used the fit chart and video on revzilla, and my measurement put me between a Med and Large, the Large is still uncomfortably tight. I wore the helmet for quite awhile inside (because if you go for a ride you cannot return it) and just never felt comfortable in it. I'm not sure if I need an XL (out of stock) or if perhaps the shape is not right for me. I'm also not willing to pay multiple return shipping fees to keep trying helmets so I will go back to trying on before purchasing. All customer service from revzilla was fantastic, and I won't hesitate to buy items from them in the future...but I am unlikely to attempt to purchase helmets via mail order again without trying on one prior to ordering.

The reviews on RevZilla's website for this helmet are right on the money. The helmet is well built and comfortable, although the cheek pads are a little tight at first they get looser within the first few rides. The face shield is a little bit low when in the full up position, leaving it slightly in your field of view, but not enough to distract your ride. I ride a KLR650 with a tall windshield, and the airflow usually buffets my street helmet pretty badly, but for some reason I don't get any buffeting with this helmet even with the peak. It must direct the airflow more over the top of the helmet. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase. Some things I'd like to see on this helmet...bluetooth integration and good quality built-in speakers. I had to bolt on my existing unit onto the helmet, and it takes away from the look of the helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I really love this helmet, don't get me wrong. It looks great in the frost black, fits well, tough as nails, just wish it flowed a bit more air and did not fog up quite as easily. I run around with the visor cracked open on it a lot.
Yes, I recommend this product.
