Arai XD4 Hi Viz Neon 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 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.

Features:

  • Comfort headliner, with micro fitting 5mm peel away temple pads
  • Fully removable/replaceable/washable interior
  • Dry-Cool technology keeps you dry and cool for greater comfort
  • 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 M2015 approved

Great for the proper application
For me there are two primary aspects to a helmet:
1. The protection it offers
2. Everything else
In the case of the XD-4, I can only trust to what I read and hear from other riders and the testing agencies regarding #1. Blessedly I have never had to rely on this helmet to save my life. But ask any reliable source, and you'll find that an Arai helmet will go further toward protecting your brain than any other.

I ride both street and dual sport bikes. For the street I have an Arai Corsair helmet, and for dual sport, it's the XD-4. The XD-4 is OUTRAGEOUSLY comfortable for the shape of my head- which is more elliptical than round. The padding and interior design of the helmet is far beyond any other I've tried on, and I have tried a lot. The helmet feels so good to have on I hardly want to take it off at the end of a ride.

Visibility is definitely geared for slower speeds- you lose some upper view and gain it below, which is where your eyes are when navigating off-road terrain. Part of this is due to the visor, but it's also the cut of the view port. When going fast on the street your eyes are focused much further ahead and that upper view is critical, and opposite is true when going more slowly. The extended front cowl of the chin bar gives better low view, as well as ventilation in the woods on a hot day when there isn't a high rate of air flow from forward movement to cool you down. The rest of the brilliant venting that Arai provides in the helmet itself works really, really well. The visor is a dream come true when riding west later in the day-no more of the left hand shielding your eyes from the sun. And because of the design of the visor, air moves through a gap between the helmet brow and the visor itself, so higher speeds don't tend to pull your head back. After all, with dual sport riding you can spend as much time on the pavement as in the dirt, and even more in some cases. So being able to go faster with the visor in place is a nice feature. At higher speeds the pointed taper of the helmet (when viewed from above) tends to smack your head around a little if you turn your head left or right, and this is something you just have to get used to and work around. The tapered shape also causes (to my eyes) some annoying distortion if you use the plastic face shield. The curve of the face shield is pretty exaggerated in order to accommodate the shape of the helmet, so I suppose the distortion is unavoidable. If you wear goggles (as many dual-sport and off-road riders do), then this won't be an issue for you. But in a driving rain, I really appreciate the face shield, and generally tend to use it with sunglasses underneath.

One final note- the hi-vis paint is way cool, and does a lot more than would seem obvious for increasing your visibility to others- my riding buddies comment that they can see me from a mile away, and that's important, since they're usually way behind me. I don't want to lose them, after all. For dual sport riding you won't do better than this helmet. For street riding it has some downsides, but that's the nature of dedicated design- this helmet isn't intended for street-only riding, though it's so comfortable and well-built that you wish it was. But that's why you need a street helmet too for dedicated street riding. To me it's worth it to have both types of helmets, rather than trying to make due with just one.

Arai XD 4
I've owned an Arai XD3, a Shoei Hornet, a Nexx XD1, and now this XD4. I can confidently say that Arai improved the XD model substantially. The XD3 was comfortable, but I used to get "highway-whip" back and forth and looking over your shoulder above 40mph took some getting used to. The wind would catch the beak and want to further twist your head. The Shoei was also comfortable but pretty loud. This XD4 vents like a champ, but the vents are arranged so intelligently that it doesn't force wind across your eyeballs like the XD3 used to. This XD4 is also much quieter than it's predecessor. The Nexx XD1 absolutely crushed my face and is massive. I looked like a bobble-head. The XD4's field of vision is expansive. The visor provides perfect optical quality, no distortion, and it's great at preventing fogging. I live in NC, where the humidity is insane. The XD4 wouldn't hold a lens fog for even a second. The visor also clicks into place satisfyingly in the closed position. I think my biggest concern with this helmet is that, supposedly, even a drop from handlbar height can render the Snell rating null and void. So if you buy this helmet just take care of it and it will take care of you.

Best dual-sport helmet I've owned, without a doubt.

you get what you pay for.
Owned HJC and recently sent back the AFX 41. The XD4 has superior finish on all components. The bill is heavy duty and very stable at highway speeds so the helmet tracks perfectly. The HJC and AFX are so large they act like wind sails and when you turn they catch the wind and snap your head around. The visor provides great visibility and is secured very well at pivot points and seals tight. Yes its expensive compared to other options but you only have one head and the price difference is a few nights out on the town so do yourself a favor.

Excellent Helmet, but mind the fog
If you are familiar with Arai helmets, you know the level of quality to expect from the brand. This helmet meets that standard in almost all aspects. Starting with the fit - I absolutely love the conforming fit of the cheek pads. The snug, but not constricting, fit gives me an extra sense that should I go off, I'll be protected. There is surprisingly very little buffeting caused by the peak. Even at highway passing speeds, I can bring my head fully out from behind the windscreen and look all the way behind me without feeling like my head is going to be ripped off. And speaking of wind, yes this helmet may be louder than some of the most expensive "road" buckets, but it is still the quietest adventure helmet I've tried and as quiet as many other full faced lids.

The color is very, very noticeable - without being obnoxious - in all weather conditions. I've had other riders tell me that the helmet is literally visible from a mile away in beltway traffic.

Airflow is incredible in the XD-4 at all speeds. This has been my daily helmet in every temperature and weather condition out there. It has kept me as cool as you can hope to be in 100+ degree days and doesn't freeze my head in sub-freezing temps.

My only complaint is one that has been echoed a lot here: fogging. The lens will fog in humid conditions and in cooler temps from the difference in inside / outside the helmet temps - there is no getting around that. I believe it is the price we pay for the beak and the extreme curvature in the front of the lens.

I ride almost daily, from rush hour commuting to weekend off road adventures and this helmet is at home in both worlds. The visibility, field of vision and protection you get in the XD-4 is second to none.

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!"

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.

Hi-viz works, overall great helmet
A buddy said the whole hi-viz thing was only a marketing ploy, that is until he admitted he saw me three blocks away because of this helmet. Just got back from a two day trip - another buddy said that I was easy to spot in gridlock traffic, all he had to do was follow the yellow blur. Helmet is light and quieter than my Shoei 1100. Only complaint is that one has to be careful that the helmet does not get marked up by incidental scrapes as the hi-viz paint can scuff easily. There is also enough black accents to make the helmet look cool.

Beautifully Made Helmet. Great styling, very well designed. Well worth the money
Purchased the helmet in yellow. Love the fit. Very impressive construction. Great air flow. Down side: The quick dry fabric is somewhat abrasive on the cheek pads. Going to add something just a bit softer there. Accepted intercom/bluetooth headset very nicely.

I pat myself on the back for making this purchase.
I have only had this helmet a short time. However, in that time I feel that it has kept me from becoming a hood ornament on at least one occasion. This is my first hi viz helmet. You can actually see driver recognize a floating neon ball heading their way where they would have missed a black helmet, which is what I used to wear.
Fit and finish are very nice. Air flow is good. Noise is moderate. Field of view is wide. Very versatile for both highway and off road use. I feel I made this purchase by using exactly what I am trying to protect, my head. Fully recommend this helmet.

Great look, Great Fit...you expecting something else from Arai?
Before purchasing this helmet I had previously used lower end, heavier helmets. So, needless to say this was like putting on my own crown to rule the kingdom of KLR'arian.

The fit feels true to the sizing of previous helmets I had used. The cheek pads are a little snug feeling, as other reviewers had mentioned, but I like the snugness of the cheek pads. The all the vents on the helmet really do a great job of keeping you cool. Set one side of the helmet vents open and the other side closed and did a small trip around the block. You can really feel all the air blowing into the helmet.

Regarding the Hi-Viz color, its amazing how many drivers I see noticing me with the bright helmet bobbing down the road. From wearing previous white and black colored scheme helmets, people never did a double take looking at me. So the helmets doing its job in that regard as well.

Easy pad removal for cleaning. All in all a great helmet and you get what you pay for.

I'm doing more dirt & single-track and 'adventure' riding and required more visibility, both seeing and being seen. I'm fortunate enough have both Shoei and Arai helmets. Both are awesome in terms of protection and quality and they both fit me well....but Arai just seems to fit a little better and is slightly more comfortable. Noise is about the same. In the end, both are a great choice but Arai seems to have an edge in this type of helmet.

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.

John K on Aug 13, 2016
which visor should i by for this helmet (Arai XD-4) ?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Arai XD 4 visor. There's a pinlock version of it, which is nice, but the XD 3 also fits.
How quickly can someone switch out the clear face shield with a tinted face shield? Is it easy? Are tools required?
A shopper on Aug 30, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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...
Does a bluetooth kit, like the Sena SMH5 fit in this helmet?
Jim R on Aug 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I don't know as I didn't try this. But I know that a jay bird Bluetooth ear phones were too big to use with the helmet , and I went back to the simple apple headphones and they got and worked well while still having a safe and secure fit with the helmet. Look up the jay bird and compare its size to what your wanting to use and you will have an answer.
Is the angle of the sun visor adjustable?
If yes, approximately how much does it move at the tip?
Michael C on Jan 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes the visor is adjustable by hand while riding about 3/4 inches at the tip with moderate tension on the side screws.

With less tension on the side screws you can get about 1-1/8 inch of movement, but the visor will likely move under high road speeds. I use this option when setting the basic angle of the visor before a ride, say west, into the sun for a whole afternoon. I looses the screws, adjust the angle, then tighten them up again.

I find that the 3/4 inch of play with my hand while riding covers early morning and late afternoon sun issues just fine with a slight tilt of my head.

I get a lot of compliments for this lid and feel safe and secure with it.
I like to ride when it gets down to 40 degrees. Does it do a decent job at blocking the cold wind?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I've been riding with the XD-4 down to single digits, however, below say 40 degrees I always wear a balaclava, and have not been cold at all. However, at the lower temps, be prepared for frost to accumulate inside the visor, that is unless you drop another $80+/- for a pinlock system, which is very effective in nearly eliminating fogging and frost. One serious caveat with respect to the pinlock and the XD-4 however is the added thickness of the pinlock insert contributes to the visor catching when opening/closing, and besides being annoying and a distraction, results in the pinlock insert seal being broken, which effectively defeats the purpose of pinlock. I have been back and forth with Arai for months regarding this problem, which they went as far as sending my helmet back to Japan for the designers to come up with a fix....they did, however, now the visor is super tight opening and closing. And the added weight of the pinlock contributes to the visor not staying fully open when your helmet is jarred when riding. That said, Arai has done a poor job in working out the bugs between the XD-4 and pinlock.
I am wanting a helmet with the lowest road noise, What do you recommend?

BEST ANSWER: This is a fairly quiet helmet, as dual sport helmets go. For the quietest helmets you'll probably want to go with modular, or some other type of road helmet.
Can you recommend a goggle that fits the XD4 well? I wear glasses, would like to maintain good peripheral vision, and want a dark tint/mirrored lens.

BEST ANSWER: Hi there Donald. Sorry I only where sunglasses with this helmet and the drop down visor when needed...love the helmet though.

Good luck,

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?

BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does cardo fit?

BEST ANSWER: The first helmut was too small. I returned this helmut for credit and I received a larger helmut which fits great.
Hello, I ride a Triumph Bonneville T120 in Matt Grey; would you advise this helmet style and hi-viz color?

BEST ANSWER: Although I love this helmet, I use it for dual sport riding and instead suggest you get something without the sun visor beak. Have you looked at the hi-viz beak-less styles by either Arai, Schuberth, Nolan, Shoe, or AGV, all quality full-face helmets better suited without the beak for use on the Triumph Bonneville 120.
