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 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
  • Dry-Cool technology keeps you dry and cool for greater comfort
  • 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
  • Exhaust ports added to the top diffuser vents
  • Chin vent with more intake ports
  • Larger sculpted side cowl vents improve ventilation
  • Snell M2010 approved

Arai XD-4 Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.7 5 234 234
Poor visibility I've owned the Arai RX-Q Hi-Viz helmet for several years and believe it's one of the best helmets on the market. I was hoping for the same with the Arai XD-4. The fit, finish and style are excellent but the distorted view through the shield is unbearable. The view is so distorted I was not able to walk around the living room. Unfortunately this caused me to return the helmet and begin the search for a different enduro helmet. Revzilla was fantastic with their no hassle return policy - thank you Revzilla! June 18, 2015
Just in time This helmet came just in time for a rainy day and I've been wearing it every day except sundays, It fits perfectly and looks killer. I got the neon yellow and the visibility is great. May 27, 2015
awesome Adventure helmet I expected no less from Arai. Added Interphone F5MC intercom and I am ready to take on the world. Can get a bit of noise from the visor at speed, but I expected that. Great design and fit.The black actually has some depth and subtle metal flake. June 22, 2015
Arai XD-4 Hi-Viz Neon Helmet - Really nice The refinement of this helmet is easily observed as soon as it's taken out of the box. The fitment is true to size, if not just slightly on the large size, and it's comfortable both with and without glasses. Overall the helmet shell size is compact and it is light. The Double D ring latching works well. The visibility is excellent with no distortion; I also acquired a second tinted shield to replace the clear. Plenty of ventilation ports; it's early spring so can't speak for how well it all works in 80 plus temps. Downsides of this helmet: - does not come with pin-lock face shield and this adds cost - it does not have a built-in sun shade; my Nolan does and this is a fantastic option that allows the elimination of acquiring multiple face shields. - the hi-viz neon is good looking, however I'd like it to be slightly more vibrant.

Poor optics... I wanted to love this helmet. I have wanted an Arai forever. I will be taking this one back. My first big beef off the top. Vision. The stock visor is crystal clear. Like you can't really even tell there's something in front of your eyes, unfortunately the drastic bend in the middle to accomplish the super cool shape creates a distortion that is absolutely sickening. It literally gives me a headache. Now first off I'll say that optical distortion hit everyone differently. Some people won't be bothered by it. If that's you this helmet can't be beat. If however you are the person who doesn't like going to 3D movies and wearing the glasses, can't stand smashed bug guts on the windshield, or can't read in a moving car.... avoid this helmet. I guess you could visor up and wear a set of Scott goggles, but that really defeats the purpose of spening close to 700 bills for a lid. If that's all you're going to do, buy a Troy Lee dirt helmet. Next small nit picky thing.. The weight. Is it just me or is this lid TOO light ? A head check at 70, or a slight tilt of the head will catch the wind broadside and feel like it's going to unscrew your head. I am used to riding Shoei helmets that are heavier, and it could just be my imagination but a bit more weight seems to stabilize the twist tendency. Also the Shoei optics are legendary. No Shoei would ever pass the drawing board with an optical VORTEX in the dead center of the helmet. Lastly the venting. There's tons of it. But memorizing and remembering the operation of the vent levers is a tad cumbersome. One side goes left, one side goes right, or wait was it one side goes... you see what I mean. You end up fliping and hoping that did it, wait a second to see if you can feel coolness... workable with one vent, but when you have this many... they should all move rearward to open. forward to close. intuitive. Finally I'd just like to temper my review with the footnote that the quality of the helmet build is fantastic. Thoughtful design for communications systems. It's like they designed it for the Cardo Scala system. There's a wire pass through and a clamp cut out in the neck shroud trim just for comms. Everything about this helmet screams quality including the Snell 2015 cert. Until you flip the visor down and wonder why it looks like a cool-aid acid trip. 700 bucks and you should be completely satisfied, not wishing for a little more. I can get that feeling with a Bilt garbage lid. Going back to switch it for the Shoei Hornet X2, and hope they didn't sacrifice visual quality for video game character styling. PS.. Snell 2015 isn't a typo. My helmet came with a SNELL 2015 cert sticker inside. Not a 2010 like the description states. 2015 is a huge bonus. June 7, 2015
Little louder than expected given I'm reviewing it compared to a shoei gt air Feels a bit thinner and smaller fit (xl on both) I had sena 20s speakers that work well in one helmet but can't hear anything with this one April 6, 2015
Love it It's a major improvement over the XD3. It fits better and feels lighter, but it doesn't seem any quieter. With the additional venting the visor doesn't seem to fog up as easily. The padding is a little different and I have to roll it forward a bit on my head to get my glasses on. Your mileage may vary, but I highly recommend the XD4. April 1, 2015
Well worth the money. Great helmet for dual-sport and adventure riding. I've really had no issues with this helmet and would buy another one without hesitation. May 11, 2015

Frank M: tried one on and really liked it. During off road rides, the visor and ability to wear goggles are necessary. My MX helmet is not aerodynamic enough for the highway speeds. This visor doesn not catch air like a MX visor Nov 20, 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.

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

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).

Michael C asked: Is the angle of the sun visor adjustable?
If yes, approximately how much does it move at the tip?
Jan 8, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gregory G: 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.

Greg W: It is not adjustable. It does come off with a quarter. the plastic is soft, thus a flat head screwdriver will dent or mark the clear plastic screws. I love the helmet. The only downside is the easily fogged face shield. The pinlock fixes that nicely. Jan 8, 2015
Reply to Greg Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Janet L: It does some what adjust, buy not that much (about 1/2" or so)
I looked at other brands and there not adjustable. This one helmet fits and is very comfy.
I ride into the sun and being about to tilt the visor down a little helps alot.

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)
Bob M: 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. Mar 5, 2015
Reply to Bob Good answer? 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

Adriano C: 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!
