Arai XD-4 Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.7 5 35 35
Best helmet you can buy!! It's simple! Fits great.Comfortable. Lightweight. Quiet. Great lens. Durable so far. About 8,000 miles of varied terrain with this helmet thus far, no complaints! Worth the cash!! March 15, 2014
Great helmet if you can afford it. Helmet was a little snug when I first wore it but has broken in very quickly. I love the adaptability to different head shapes with the foam bits that come out. The ventilation is great and extremely flexible for temps and conditions. I also bought this for the SNELL compliance, in my opinion all helmets should have this and when it comes down to it I don't mind paying a little extra for more safety. March 10, 2014
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. February 24, 2014
Hi-Viz The Hi-Viz is extremely visible. Only problem I have is wind noise. Maybe it is from bike and not helmet so cannot blame helmet until I have tried another helmet. December 9, 2013
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. November 14, 2013
Just whan I needed admittedly I'm new at this.... but no let down once received... everything I expected and great ventilation for desert rides! November 11, 2013
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. October 28, 2013
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. October 26, 2013

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.

David W: Purchased for my adventure motorcycle. I have purchased lesser expensive helmets for road riding but wanted a quality unit for riding my GS. This is a great helmet, excellent ventilation and highly visible. Nov 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

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

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

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!
