What's this?

Arai XD-4 Explore Helmet

The Arai XD4 is world renowned for being the one of the best ADV touring helmets on the market and one of the few that achieves a Snell M2010 safety rating. The XD4 incorporates all of the same great qualities found in Arai's other helmets including the comfort liner and cheek pads that feature 5mm peel-away pads that allow riders to tailor the fit. The shell of the XD4 has also been aerodynamically tuned and, in concert with the removable floating peak visor, funnels air into the redesigned vents, improving overall ventilation and mitigating buffeting at speed. 

The XD-4 is the helmet of choice for many hardcore ADV enthusiasts and sets an industry standard for comfort, quality and safety.


  • Comfort headliner, with micro fitting 5mm peel away temple pads
  • Fully removable/replaceable/washable Interior: Comfort head liner, Cheek pads, Chinstrap covers
  • Dry-Cool technology keeps you dry and cool for greater comfort
  • Patent pending, FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design, also with a 5mm peel away micro fit feature
  • Improved shell shape for better aerodynamic stability at higher street speeds
  • Exhaust ports added to the top diffuser vents
  • Chin vent with more intake ports
  • Larger sculpted side cowl vents improve ventilation
  • Snell M2010 approved

Great helmet I highly recommend it This is a great dual sport helmet visibility is good Comfort is good ventilation is excellent it's just a good all-around dual sport helmet June 8, 2016
Still the best DS Helmet Tinted goggles + quick straps + clear screen allow you to adjust for riding conditions without stopping. Highway during the day use goggles with visor down. Gets dark or starts to rain, swing goggles around the back of the helmet and just use visor. In the dirt just use goggles with shield open. The ability to use the goggles + visor is something I can no longer live without. The new shoei has an easily removable visor which is great for cleaning but goggles won't fit underneath.

Great Helmet at a great price this is the second one I have purchased, great all round helmet May 17, 2016
Expensive, but great helmet I wanted to get a supermoto helmet that has superior protection. This definitely fits the bill, but is also one of the most expensive, if not the most expensive helmet in that category. You get what you pay for with this helmet, though: peace of mind that you have a helmet that passes Snell and DOT standards, a visor, and a face shield. This helmet has awesome features that make the airflow very adjustable. Watch the video on this site. I love that you can use goggles with this helmet with the face shield. I had been using an old dirtbike helmet and this thing is just not even in the same ballpark and I'm glad I made the jump. May 5, 2016
Slightly disapointed Got the helmet yesterday and one of the top vents isn't working. Hopefully when I get the next one it will be working properly. Plus 7 bucks for return -_- that sucks June 18, 2016
nice helmet I run a quick strap on mine for my goggles it would be nice if opening was bigger for goggles but works, the speakers for my radio are tight do to smaller ear cups but other than that great helmet . May 3, 2016
Great overall just a couple knit picks Overall I am very happy with this purchase. Like all good quality gear it is expensive but you get what you pay for. It is SNELL approved as well as the required DOT. I bought the high vis for its intended purpose and it doesn't fail me. Airflow is good but the vent on the chin directly in front of the lower parrt of the helmet needs some kind of screen as it will allow bugs and other debris to fly thorough and potentially go in your eyes. This has happened numerous times on my multiple long rides and is something I think should seriously be addressed. Other then the above flaw the weight of the helmet is great as well as the cooling. I don't sweat near as much compared to wearing my cheap BILT brand helmet (still decent and legal by DOT standards but not on the same level). Like I said before you get what you pay for. Also compared to my BILT brand helmet I have zero hotspots after hours of riding. That is until I put some u clear speakers in. Only after very extensive rides (4+ hours) do I feel SLIGHT discomfort and pressure on my ears. This I feel is normal considering the circumstances and the speakers installed. The clear screen offers great viewing angles and to me wider than normal. Also the sun shield offers great shading and doesn't really affect me on my enduro while going down the road. Plus it looks pretty awesome if I say so myself. The yellow matches perfect to the KLIM badlands high vis yellow which is good for people like me that like matching. Overall: buy it and feel safer knowing you bought quality gear. Customer service is amazing as always. June 9, 2016
Fit and Finish as expected from Arai This is my 4th Arai. And every one of them are excellent helmets. They are very expensive, and I know that other brands are quiet good if not excellent themselves, but the fit and finish of the Arai brand is always exceptional. This is my first ADV style helmet and I am most impressed by the vision. I have a lot more up and down vision over a standard full face helmet. As for the Floating Peek Visor, it is barley any different than a non-peek helmet. A little buffeting at speeds that are not posted... :) As expected. June 7, 2016
