Arai XD-4 Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.7 5 186 186
Expensive, but great quality! Revzilla video description is accurate. Great looking helmet! Peak does great and does not catch much wind at all. Very little drag. Seems to be very aerodynamically sound. Look into the research and development that Arai puts into its helmets, specificity this one, and you can't help but be impressed. No doubt, that safety is there number one goal. Fit is true. Definite intermediate oval. Air flow is good. Sound level for a DS helmet is good. Optics are very good, very little distortion. Not enough said about the color! The color is more of a yellow, needles to say, than a high-viz green. When I first saw the color, I was a little disappointed, but was pleasantly surprised when I saw it in the daylight. In the daylight this helmet is completely different IMO. One of the only descriptions I read that mentioned the color called it "eye searing yellow", and I have to say that I fully agree! In the daylight it is absolutely eye searing, and even difficult to look at, if it's bright out!! It is expensive, but the quality is great and you do feel like you get your money's worth. Feels like it should last for a long time. Only problem is, that when you pay $557 for a helmet, you're way too afraid to even put a small scratch on it. Therfore, off-road, you tend to really watch it, more so then you really want to. Over all great helmet. Happy with my purchase. July 28, 2014
The Best So Far I have owned more than my share of helmets over the years, and the Arai XD4 Pro is far and away the best of them. I think it offers more comfort and performance than helmets that are substantially more expensive. It feels snug but comfortable, offers more frontal protection than a standard street helmet, and has much better airflow than other helmets. Since I commute to work on my motorcycle, I also appreciate the high-vis color. Of course, you can buy a helmet for far less than this. However, you won't get the features or the security that this helmet offers. As a motorcycle instructor of mine once said "Never pay more for a helmet than you'd pay to replace your head!"

Amazing helmet, light, comfy and sharp looking It's all it's worked up to be, is very light, comfortable and looks really good on. It's has great features, removable washable padding, lots of vents, bolts that sheer off the visor in case of a crash, it's also very quiet. It is very expensive! That's my only issue with it, not sure I would fork out that much a second time even though I really love it. June 23, 2014
Well worth the price How much is your head worth? That's the question asked myself when looking for a helmet. I knew I wanted a dual sport helmet and I wanted the best one available. My head means that much to me. I've been extremely happy with this purchase. It fits great and feels great. I don't have regrets with purchasing at all. The bill is removable for extended highway riding, which is nice as it really does act like a sail. I've used it while riding dirt and the bill did a great job of keeping branches out of my face. It fits goggles under the visor too!! I typically take off the visor when only riding off-road, and the process is super quick. Long story short, the best dual sport helmet on the market and well worth the price. June 23, 2014
I have an Arai head. I can't get a better fit anywhere. Really like the visor with sunglasses Wind noise average for off road helmet. I grab my street helmet if riding on asphalt. The air flow system flows a ton of air and is far cooler than any helmet I have worn to date. Wish it was cheaper, but it is an investment in protection, comfort and fit. July 29, 2014
Spend the money! I have 3 months in with this helmet, no regrets on spending the extra cash. July 28, 2014
Perfect helmet for adventure/general touring I had the Arai XD-4 helmet in mind after watching the Long Way Round/Long Way Down motorcycle documentaries, because Ewan and Charlie used Arai helmets (an earlier version of the XD-4, maybe an XD-3.) The high price was off-putting at first, but after doing some research and watching Anthony's Revzilla TV review I decided to pop for a new Arai XD-4. It shipped very quick. When I pulled it out of the box it had a premium look and feel. When I first put it on the fit was near perfect. After peeling off the five millimeter adjustable cheek pads, as suggested for a roomier face fit, it was perfect. Positives include excellent venting, wide field of view, comfortable customizable fit, aerodynamic design, useful removable visor, reasonably quiet, looks great. Negatives - could be a bit quieter, but with the huge amount of venting options this is understandable. Also thanks for the sizing advice on Revzilla TV. I thought I was a large, but I found out I'm really a medium. I had a great buying experience and am completely satisfied with my Arai XD-4. Thank you, Kris July 28, 2014
Love the look and feel of my new XD4 Put 10k miles on my last Arai XD3. It was two sizes to big for me. Finally got the XD4 properly fit, and I love it. Can't believe I waited so long to pull the trigger. Showed up the day after I ordered it. July 24, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Manuel J A: Arai helmets are very well made and this particular head gear is a very versatile product. both on and off road. In the rain, that beak serves as a rain gutter, so to speak and will not blur vision while riding. Jul 8, 2014

Greg N: Quality, fit and want to be seen Mar 18, 2014
Morgan H: Love the features, great color, overall the best helmet money can buy Mar 13, 2014
Greg W: Several reasons: visibility over coolness. Love the light weight, the view box gives excellent peripheral visibility. Improved air flow. I like the Klim X4, but I wanted a visor and goggle choices for the long highway rides. I did the WABDR this Fall, and the choice was confirmed with the performance. It is surprisingly quiet as well.

A shopper asked: How quickly can someone switch out the clear face shield with a tinted face shield? Is it easy? Are tools required? Aug 30, 2013

deborah M: I haven't changed out the face shield on this helmet yet I have owned many Arai helmets and they have all had the Arai click in click out (simple when you know how but always worth watching a demo on You Tube first). I love this helmet because it is so comfy even with headphones and microphone installed for intercoms, wireless and phone. It stands out too and that's good for safety. Hope this helps. Aug 30, 2013

heather t: The helmet is very easy to work with. If you have a nickel you can switch out lenses, or visor in 2 minutes if you move slowly and deliberately. I have this model and a model from 4 years ago. This one is slightly better ventilated, and better interior padding... Aug 30, 2013

Cooper L: There are 4 plastic screws to be removed with a coin or similar flat tool. It may take a couple minutes to change, but is not difficult. Having a visor with a tinted shield makes this helmet perfect for early morning and evening commutes when the sun is low. Aug 30, 2013

John B: Switching the shield is a bit of a PITA, there are four nylon screws that can be removed with a coin, but it's kind of tricky to line them up when reassembling. Overall is a great helmet, but this is my only real gripe about it. Aug 30, 2013
Reply to John Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
jose b: You need to remove the four screws (two on ecah side) with a coin or screwdriver. Is easy but not fast.
Still I recommend this helmet, it feels premium and the beak is really useful.

A shopper asked: I like to ride when it gets down to 40 degrees. Does it do a decent job at blocking the cold wind? Dec 6, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Arai XD-4, along with all other Dual Sport helmets, aren't the best option for colder weather. Their extended chinbars aid airflow, which for warm weather are great, but are not helpful at all in the cold. Wearing a balaclava can help to block the cold air from your skin, but the better option would be a full-face or modular helmet with balaclava if needed. Dec 6, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
AdrianoTransalp: Looking forward to some nice cold weather. Winter in Brazil is in July. What I can tell is that my old XD was good enough with a balaclava underneath so the new one will do just as good with the vents closed. Mar 18, 2013

A shopper asked: I have been looking all over for a dealer in Minnesota that has yet to carry the XD4. All I can find to try on are XD3 helmets. How is the fitment of the 3 in comparison to the 4? A close enough match in size to make an online purchase without trying it on first? Feb 4, 2012

Greyfox: I have not tried an Arai XD-3, but found the XD-4 to be quite narrow. I would not recommend it unless you have a narrow, long-oval shaped head. My Arai Vector - size XL - fits very well. But the XD-4 in the same size does not. I would refer you to my review. Oct 31, 2012

RevZilla: We have found the fit of the XD4 to be very close to the XD3. The XD3 has a slightly narrow fit, while the XD4 is a little closer to having an intermediate oval fit. May 3, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ride2Adventure: I've had a chance to ride with the XD4 having ridden with the XD3 for over 3 years. The head fitment is approximately the same. If anything there is a bit more adjustability with the XD4 than with the XD3. I wear a Arai size M helment and in the original XD3 the included cheek pads were 20 MM. With the new XD4, the cheek pads were 25 MM and the helmet was a bit snug. But don't fear, the cheek pads are easily removable and Arai thoughtfully has included a 5 MM tear off layer on the cheek pad. A couple of careful quick pulls and I had 2 brand new 20 MM cheek pads. As far as other sizes go, I don't know what size cheek pads are included so if you are worried about this, best to ask first and make sure the 5 MM adjustment, if necessary will work for you. Enjoy!
