Arai XD-4 Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.7 5 198 198
visor makes some whistle when head is looking up love the color and the fit .feels safe and cool at the same time looking at the helmet makes me want to ride October 14, 2014
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! September 29, 2014
the most important piece of gear great product, fits snug. had to adjust cheek foam. want the best fit when it comes to helmet,this one gives you that , plus ventilation options open or closed what ever you desire..nice bright "don't hit me neon". why go cheap when it comes to you head., worth the money. September 16, 2014
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. September 29, 2014
Fantastic 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 ! September 27, 2014
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. September 15, 2014
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. September 13, 2014
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

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.

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

Bob C: I use my house keys upper "handle" to unscrew and rescrew visor. Very simple and quick. Be sure to take a solid look at the outer plates to replace them as before. There is two possible ways to reattach. I did it wrong the first time. 3 minutes? Aug 1, 2014

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.

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).

Jason D: 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.

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
Reply to Greyfox Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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!
