Adjustable and comfortable!
I have owned many Helmets over the years. This helmet is comfortable, has many adjustments for air flow and fitment. I have used it for both off road and highway travel and thought it was great for both. Well worth the money!

Best in Category
This is my 5th XD helmet, I've owned them since they first came out. All-day comfort when properly fit, famous Arai quality, and excellent vision / airflow. The visor works well when riding into the sunrise/sunset. The trick for fitment on Arai helmets is to remove the cheekpads first, and see if the helmet fits around the top of your head. Often the cheekpads are too tight and make you think you need a larger size when in fact you need thinner cheekpads, which are available in many thicknesses or you can just cut down the stock ones with a single edge razor blade such as I do. Like in most things, you get what you pay for - Arai lids have never been inexpensive, but they are one of the top brands. Revzilla makes it easy to buy, with a generous return policy if you don't like it once you try it. They are my favorite after-market vendor.

Just got my new Arai and I love it ! I'm very impressed at the quality and air flow of the helmet . There are cheaper helmets out there but nothing compares to the XD-4 ! Thanks revzilla for the great service and fast delivery !

Light, comfortable and surprisingly quiet
I got the Arai helmet for dual sport riding. It has an intermediate oval head shape which suits me well. It is comfortable and feels light. It has a number of venting options and is overall a cool helmet on the road. It is pretty quiet for the type of helmet (although I ride behind a fairly quiet windscreen; I haven't ridden it on a naked bike). The visor stays up well. There is no "cracked open" detente which I wish it had. It has quick-out ear pads to allow the helmet to be removed quickly on a really bad day. A bluetooth communicator installed pretty easily.

Super cool helmet - in more ways than one!
Very comfortable helmet. I pulled the cheek pads out and removed one 5mm layer of foam after I watched the Revzilla video and learning I could do it. I also installed my Sena blue tooth SMH10 headset and placed the speakers inside the cheek pads in the ear inserts. Very happy with the outcome. It looks great, has great vision, but for me the best feature is the airflow. I can actually feel the wind in my hair because the venting system is so good! I live in Brisbane, Australia and it is hot a humid so airflow was the main feature I was looking for. In my humble opinion, the Arai XD4 has nailed it.

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.
