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

  • 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

Arai XD-4 Flare Helmet 4.7 5 254 254
Arai... Enough said ! Aria helmets have a "feel" to them ,that sets them apart from the other high end helmets. I bought this helmet and immediately removed the peak. I have no need for it as I only ride on the street. I love the extra wide vision from it. Vents great and can actually feel the air moving across your head. Had no fogging issues at all what so ever. Liner is very comfortable and my 23 inch head fit great in a large. I ride a R1200gs Lc and an 2006 street glide. Helmet "goes" great with both. September 14, 2015
perfect fit Tried the Shoei in MED but it was too tight in the cheeks. 23"head fit fine, but even after ordering the XL cheekpads, it was still too tight and I realized that it tickeled my regulation way I could stand that and after 50 years, not shaving it either! No problem with the Revzilla return. Ordered the Arai XD-4 Hi-Viz also in MED fit PERFECT! Sure, it's snug, but not painfully so like the Shoei was. More room in front of the stash too. Bottom line is that the Arai MED runs a bit more spacious than the Shoei MED, at least for my head. JD September 12, 2015
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
Comfy, but a bit noisy. I bought this helmet for my wife. She loves the comfort, view, venting, and shade from the visor. The wind noise inside is louder than my new shoei Hornet. Also her visor whistles above 50 miles per hour. August 14, 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
High quality helmet with great vision, venting and other features I've used both Shoei & Arai helmets for over 20 years now in mostly street/track riding. Now that I've added off-road/ADV touring to my riding I bought the Arai XD-4. I tried on the Shoei Hornet DS and X2 helmets but felt the Arai was better for me overall. I'm very satisfied with my purchase of the helmet and additional dark face shield. It allows long, comfortable rides in various conditions and the only time I even think about the helmet during rides is to open/close the effective vents. The peak is effective for shielding your vision from direct sun in your eyes when riding and isn't bulky or obstructive otherwise. The shield is easy to swap if/when you need to using just a key or a coin to remove and replace the screws. The helmet allows enough room to wear sunglasses with the helmet on and causes me no discomfort at all. I'd highly recommend this helmet. July 27, 2015
My favourite helmet I have upgraded to XD-4 from my XD-3 that was slightly too tight (L), went XL with XD-4 it feels a little loose I guess I'm unlucky to be right on the size edge, replaceable cheekpieces will fix that I hope. Other than that just like XD-3 I love it, fit, feel, handless hwy speeds nicely but most importantly vents really good. July 23, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
peder k: Have a 9 year old XD which has served well but time to retire it. Arai XD is a perfect fit for my head and beautiful quality. Arai is the only helmet line, street and dual sport, that I trust with caring for my melon. Sep 24, 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.

H R: Design, colour scheme Feb 20, 2015
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
