Arai XD-4 Flare 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

Arai XD-4 Flare Helmet 4.8 5 6 6
I definitely recommend this product. I have had Arai full faced helmets in the past, and this one feels and presents just as well, if not better. The larger lens allows for better visibility. I installed the intercom from the previous Arai (Quantum J) and it fits much better. Definitely a great looking, safe product that got a lot of attention from the other riders. July 27, 2015
Worked as expected It bought this product to use with my 2015 GSA. It fit me a little tight around the temples but I removed the 5mm extra foam referred to in the product doc and it resolved the issue. This feature was the main reason I decided on this helmet. I am a little disappointed on the noise level. I have a Schubert C3 and it is quiet on the GSA compared to this Arai XD-4. At highway speeds I use ear plugs and it does resolve the noise issues, However the XD-4 is better ventilated and has better overall view of the road. The shield stays put wherever it is put at any legal speed. I wear glasses and it is a pain getting my thin flexible clear prescription glasses on, however my prescription sunglasses go on easily. The fit and finish and graphics are first class as you would expect in such a pricey helmet. The sales literature here seems to indicate that this helmet is Snell 2010 however the Snell inside the helmet label says M2015. July 8, 2015
Loving it! I took a chance on Arai with this purchase, having heard very good reviews on the quality and fit/shape. I haven't spent overly long periods of time in it yet, but the 1-1.5 hour stints have so far not given me any hot spots. It's surprisingly quiet for a dual sport helmet! Fit is snug around my head without pinching my cheeks too much. My Shoei fits my head well, but pinches my face enough to make my ears ache after a while (weird, I know). No such trouble with this Arai. Feels good, looks good...winner! June 29, 2015
Excellent helmet This is my second XD4. Great style, very comfortable. My only complain is that it fogs easily and need to keep opened a bit, specially at low speeds. Otherwise a perfect choice. Plus I really like the new sand flare design which matches my bike colours May 4, 2015
Finally Did It Have wanted to try one for years, but price and fit were concerns. Still think it's too costly....is it really 400% better than a $150 lid? don't think so. Is it better....definitely yes in quality, materials, and engineering. What surprised me most was the great it fit. I always thought of myself as a 'rounder' head Shoei type but I followed the sizing recommendation and am quite happy with the fit. I haven't had it long enough to rate it's durability, but their rep indicates it's top-notch. Wish Arai could find a way to incorporate a sun shield w/o compromising their safety concerns but hey, I look kewl in sunglasses. Love the new Flare design too. March 17, 2015
Very comfortable. Good design. I haven't put in a full day ride yet because we are still somewhat snowbound but the snow is melting quickly and I cannot wait to go riding. This is my first street adventure helmet but the fit and comfort are excellent. I normally wear a medium but the small is a much better fit in this model. The Revzilla team was excellent as always. If I need something I check Revzilla first to see if they have it. I will buy from Revzilla if they have it rather than shop for a better price. Revzilla prices are usually the same or close but their service and ease of doing business can't be beat so I just prefer to do business with them. March 16, 2015

O Mitchell S: The XD-4 is a great helmet. May 25, 2015
R O: This is my second XD4. The first one suffered a couple of encounters with the floor while my head was inside and I felt the need to replace it.
Very comfortable and on the light side, the only problem is that the shield fogs easily wich forces to open it a bit.

Warren H asked: Like this helmet in the sand colour but I'm wondering if the helmet will accommodate communication devices, rider to rider, rider to pillion, bluetooth etc? If not could you recommend a dual sport helmet that does. Nov 5, 2014

A shopper asked: I have the Shoei Hornet and love the ventilation, fit and wide view. What it lacks is a quick release face-shield and a face shield detention that allows it to be opens slightly for more ventilation at times. Tell me about the new Aria DS on your website? Aug 20, 2014

David S: I rode with an Arai XD-3 for a few years. I needed to replace the helmet after a few off road mishaps. I heard good reviews for the Shoei DS Hornet and gave it a try. It was a big let down coming from the XD-3. The XD-3 ventilation is much cooler. The XD-3 faceshield can be opened slightly to allow for a little ventilation or to unfog the shield. Also, the visor on the Shoei is so high it's never in your field of view and does NOT shield the sun even if you tilt your head forward. I just bought a new XD-4 and so far I'm very happy I did. Yes, it's expensive...but it's the best DS helmet out there. If you can afford it...BUY IT. Aug 29, 2014
