What's this?

Arai Defiant Pro Cruise Helmet

Designed specifically for the aesthetics and needs of street fighter and naked bike riders but with the added functionality of a built-in sun shade, the Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise Helmet is aggressive and feature rich as one would expect from any Arai helmet. The Defiant Pro-Cruise Helmet expands the functionality of the first generation Arai Defiant Helmets by adding the Arai Pro Shade system, which operates as both a peak and as a sun shade. The Pro Shade System is a small peak that is locked in position. Unlocking is easy; just pull the Pro Shade System forward, then it can be flipped down with a flick of the hand to act as an effective sun-visor. 

Based on the fit and comfort of the Quantum, the Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise was built for the upright riding position with its aggressive, integrated chin spoiler, which was designed specifically to guide wind around the neck and to improve the aerodynamic properties of the helmet. The Hyper Ridge Bumper circles the bottom of the shell both adding additional strength and also lowering the helmet's center of gravity, while flaring the helmet opening slightly to increase the ease of putting on, and taking off.

The Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise Helmet utilizes Arai's latest faceshield design, the SAI Max Vision Pinlock Shield with Brow Vents and includes Pinlock insert lens. The SAI Max Vision shield has been widened by 5mm left and right and offers one of the widest eyeports available for excellent peripheral vision.  

Features:

  • Pro Shade System for dual sun-blocking capabilities
  • Eco-Pure Liner is anti-microbial
  • Ear pockets have been redesigned to better accept communication speakers for a more comfortable fit
  • Internals are redesigned with a focus on safety and comfort
  • Organic shell shape for superb energy management
  • IC-4 Upper Intake vents seal more completely when closed
  • ACR-4 flow thru exhaust vent allows greater air flow when open and reduces drag when closed
  • FCS R (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design has 5mm peel away micro fit layer for greater personal fit
  • Cheek pads feature contoured shape, multiple density foam layer supported by a patented spring
  • Shell shape is easier to put on and take off than previous helmets
  • Water repellent material along bottom edge
  • Pull down spoiler works with new flared bottom to increase helmet stability
  • SAI Max Vision Brow Vent Pinlock anti-fog lens insert included
  • DOT and Snell M2015 certified

Note: Cheek pads are Ecopure fabric only.

Insane Air Flow.
I have this helmet for 2 months now and it is very different from anything I ever had.
Air flow was mindblowing first time I got up to 50 mph. Air blows from every angle and and sometimes straight into your eyes. You cannot completely seal this helmet. Even with all vents closed there is more airflow than my Shoei RF1100.
This is great helmet in the summer at moderate speed but I can't imagine wearing this helmet on a long trip.
Dark visor screen works good when it's down but makes noise at higher speed if you have it lifted. I don't ride without earplugs.
Styling is superb. If it matters, I get a lot of compliments. Interior is very luxurious and has by far best feel from any helmet I use. There is only one pressure point on my forehead that feels uncomfortable after about an hour. Other than that very good fit.
If you like lots of Air in your face this is your helmet. If you ride in cold days like I do, make a pass or use this as a second helmet.

You Get What You Pay For!
I've owned Arai helmets for over 20 years.

When I found Revzilla, I thought I'd try to find a comparable helmet to Arai for less money. Also, I was curious about other brands.

This is the 3rd helmet I purchased from Revzilla in 6 months!

I bought 1) Shark Speed-R; 2) Bell Bullitt; 3) Arai Defiant Pro-Cruise.

I've ridden with all three helmets now what have I learned after spending over $1450 in helmets in just 6 months? I will only buy Arai Helmets for the rest of my life!

While the Shark has a nifty drop down sun-visor, and it's shape fit me fine, the interior padding does not feel all encompassing like Arais. The venting also doesn't work very well. I do like the 3mm main visor and that it comes with a pinlock lens. The Shark suit me fine but the cheek pads never did break in and the inside corners would press against my sinus cavities causing discomfort. I tried different cheek pads and it only changed the way the helmet fit on my face.

The Bell Bullitt seemed great. Nice retro-styling and the interior is advertised as "super premium". Wrong. It feels crunchy, thin, and cheap inside. The material is abrasive and rough. The helmet is also more of a "long oval" fit, while I'm more of a "round neutral" head. I would've loved to return it but alas I took it for a test ride and Revzilla does not accept helmets that have been ridden with for returns. Sure I could've lied but that would've made me a schmuck! Luckily enough, Revzilla was kind enough to give me a token of appreciation in the form of Zilla dollars and turns out, my wife's head fits in the Bell just fine! Yay!

This helmet is everything Arai is. Light, safe, super comfortable, and has a few new gadgets like the external sun-visor.

Very superlative used to describe Arai Helmets is TRUE! I've learned the very expensive, time consuming, hard way! If you find a helmet that fits well and you enjoy riding in it, stick to it! For me, Arai Helmets are worth EVERY PENNY and I will never stray again. The interior is actually super plush and feels great. The venting is what I remember with my old helmets, you can really feel the air flowing!

My ONLY grip was covered by Anthony in the video. The lower corners of the sun-visor, when down, are cut a little high. It would've been really nice if the sun-visor covered the entire shield or was cut just a 1/4" longer in the corners!

With this helmet I also purchased a Sena SMH10R Bluetooth kit. Though easy to install, in theory, it took me a while because I wanted to get everything in just right. Great combo btw!

Best Helmet I own
I have several helmets in my closet: Shoei RF1000, RF1100 and a J-Cruise. I also have a Bell Rogue and an RS-1. Mostly I use the J-Cruise as it is my favorite helmet lately.

I've been riding for over a decade and have had many different type of bikes from nakeds to sport bikes and now a Harley. Obviously different bikes lend themselves to different patterns of air flowing over them.

What I like most about this helmet is how it works perfectly for bikes without fairings or windscreens. On my Harley I dont have a windscreen. Obviously, when you reach certain speeds the air just wallops you and your helmet goes anywhere it wants. This helmet seems unaffected by any air coming at it. So much so, that on one of my first rides with it, there was a considerable gust of wind coming from my side while on the highway. My bike kept getting pushed over with each gust but my helmet never swayed one bit. I also noticed being able to go faster without feeling like my helmet was getting pushed back. This was a situation where I thought I was going fast but realized I was going about 10-15mph faster than I normally would have at that point but didnt feel like I was.

The airflow is just amazing like I just said. I knew this helmet was designed for bikes with more of an upright seating position but never realized how much a difference it could make. The other great thing about this helmet is how much airflow inside the helmet it allows. It really feels like a fan is sitting inside the helmet blowing on your face and over your head. This brings to one caveat though, its either a decent amount of airflow or none at all. I cant recommend this helmet for cold weather riding as it does feel like a freezer inside. If you close all the vents then it gets very stuffy.

The other caveat because of all the venting is there is a slight ability to get more wind noise inside the helmet. I wear earplugs so its not much of a concern but its a bit more noticeable than my other full face helmets. For me its a fair tradeoff.

The visor on this works great. It closes with a confident click and locks into position. The shaded visor on top really works well when flipped down however there might be some times when you can see the lower part of it. When flipped up though it has no effect on airflow over the helmet and clicks positively out of the way.

Ultimately, I really like the design of this helmet, Everything was done with all types of riding in mind. The fit and finish is absolutely top notch. I even accidentally dropped the helmet on my first ride and cracked the rear air vent cover. I got that easily replaced through Arai and installed it in a couple minutes. I really like that features like this are on the helmet.

I can only recommend this helmet with full confidence. This is my favorite helmet now and I hope others discover it for themselves.

Favorite Helmet
I've owned three Arai Helmets. This one is my favorite. I find it fits great, is very comfortable, and relatively quiet. I love the pro shade and visor. The ventilation is excellent also. Style wise, I was a little turned off by the "wing" on the rear but have gotten used to it. I'd highly recommend it.

Awesome helmet!
This helmet is great. The fit and finish is excellent. I was deciding between this and a Schuberth C3 Pro however this seemed to fit me better. It's not the lightest helmet I've tried but it's certainly not heavy by any means. The plush padding and inside make the helmet so comfortable to wear even on long rides. It's pretty quiet and the Pro Shade system is truly functional. I'm by no means a speed demon but I can say up to 90mph it remains still without vibration and noise. I'd certainly recommend this product!

Excellent Choice, but a little too much airflow
After riding about 1000+ miles with the Defiant, I am very pleased with my purchase. Previously I had a Snell rated helmet but the feel, comfort, and weight of the Defiant is light years ahead of the other helmet, which was a great helmet too. I live in Colorado so the weather varies. Currently fall is upon us which makes for cool mornings and hot afternoons. The Defiant works in the varying conditions well and the Pro-Cruise shield helps me transition from early morning to the day with no problems too. The Pinlock shield is works beautifully as the shield has not fogged up once sitting at stop lights. The only issue I have, and it's likely just a personal preference, but the airflow is almost too much in the cool mornings, even with all vents closed and the shield locked. I have found a work around though, by wearing a thermal head liner. Overall this is a great helmet and would recommend it to anyone.

Happy with my Helmet Purchase
I was considering this purchase for a few months. I needed a new helmet when I realized that I had bought 2 other helmets, Aria Quantum 2 and a Shoei RF1100, in the wrong size. I bought both in large. I was looking at this helmet for a while as it was closer to my head shape and had the new pinlock and shade system. I have put a few hundred miles on it and It is a great helmet. Very comfortable and plenty of air flow. A bit too much if its a little chilly, sub 40 degrees. Its also a bit noisy at speed so you may want to consider ear plugs. The visor is awesome. I thought i wouldn't like the way the shade works as it covers a bit more than the top half of the shield but it is actually perfect. It blocks that sun and that's what i wanted. At dusk I can lift the shade and I have a clear view when it starts to get dark.

I am glad I purchased it.

Confidence inspiring helmet!
I've always bought affordable low cost value helmets and felt that they were good enough. Well recently my helmet fell apart and I thought I'd go ahead, splurge and invest in a top of the line helmet. After much research, I decided to go with the Arai Defiant Pro Cruise. All I can say is, WOW! This helmet is like a work of art, but still built like a tank! Every aspect of a helmet that should be considered has been considered. Its comfortable, its properly ventilated (maybe a bit too much at times). The only complaint I have are the brow vents. They tend to vibrate open at times and gets too breezy in the helmet. If you are considering this helmet and can afford it, by all means get it! You will be beyond satisfied.

Great Helmet! Great service!
This Helmet is Great! But the best part of this buying experience has been Revzilla. The helmet is an Arai and is a huge up grade for me both in fit and function over the Bell I had. The venting is incredible moving so much more air than I ever expected. The pro shade system works great too but I've already ordered a longer visor. The stock one seems too short. As for Revzilla, I ordered the wrong size helmet (my head is on the line between MD/LG) and had to return the MD. The speed and ease in which they handled my return was amazing. I reordered the right size and was off and riding in a few days!

This a great helmet!!!!
No need to carry 2 visors. The shade feature is excellent and has great visibility. Helmet is very comfortable and fits great. The only concern I have is when using my Sena 20s, the speakers do not sit far enough in without bothering my ears. I had to modify the depth to make them fit better. I called Arai to see if the 15mm cheek pads have a thinner base, but they said that the only difference is the thickness of the removable pads. Other than this, this is an excellent product.
