Product Details

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.  


  • 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.

Shape: Intermediate Oval

Better protection
Rod G on May 12, 2017
My wife wanted a full helmet for when we go riding, and so far she loves her Arai. We tried several helmets in the Shoei/Arai brands and it came down to the Shoei RF1200 and the Arai Defiant. She felt that the Arai gave her a little better fit and protection. So far, she's worn it for about a year and still loves it.
Dave K on Apr 30, 2017
Quality product, needed to protect my brain. great rep.

Harvey W on Oct 24, 2016
Very well ventilated helmet. Love the exterior sun-shade and pinlock. A little on the colder-side though.
StrictlySkyler on Sep 20, 2016

C A on Jan 25, 2016
Safety. Arai has a great reputation, and I wanted to see for myself if they lived up to the hype.

Time will tell as I have not used the helmet yet.
James W on Sep 9, 2015
great look and reputation.
rob c on Mar 19, 2015
Built in speaker pockets, tinted visor, pin lock capability, Arai helmet quality and performance. I have been wearing Arai helmets for 20 years, there is no equal.
N O on Feb 21, 2015
because I have 2015 Yamaha fz 07. its a naked bike the helmet I have now is not very good for this bike.

Premium helmet. Simply Arai.
Ibo V on Oct 5, 2017
This didn't fit me. I had to send it back and exchange it.
Tanja S on May 14, 2017
Was wondering if the shield from the Arai Defiant would also fit the Arai Defiant Pro? I like the features of the Pro, and I know it has the flip down sun shade, but would like the option of a darker or even mirrored shield. Thanks Mike, NC
A shopper on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will definitely fit. They are the same helmet except the pro comes with the flip down sun visor and the pockets for the ears.
Is the Pro-Cruise helmet going to be available in any other colors (i.e. white) anytime soon? Also, could the cheek pads from a regular Defiant be replaced with those from the Pro-Cruise to accommodate a speaker system?
Chris H on Dec 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm also interested to find out if this comes in solid white or silver.
Is this helmet also ECE R22-05 certified?
A shopper on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is Shell and DOT not sure of ECE certification, sorry
Can the ProShade System be removed if one doesn't like it? To make it look like a regular Defiant.
A shopper on Jul 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Pro Shade can be removed very easily. I would suggest it's worth buying the Pro Cruise version of the helmet to try the shade out- I would bet you'll end up liking it- but if you don't you can remove it and you will still have the Arai Defiant helmet with PinLock which is a fantastic helmet and you'll only be out a few bucks- still less money than if you'd bought the helmet, the PinLock insert, and the ProShade separately.
Will the Comfort Liner Help the forehead pressure point?

Head- 23 inch's on the dot
Helmet Size- Medium
Matthew M on Dec 30, 2015
I cannot say specifically how it will fit your head, however, I find no tight spots or uncomfortableness with this helmet. It fits snug and comfortable around the circumference of my head and on my cheeks. Helmets feels of high quality and feels as if it would protect if needed. Good luck.
Hey guys, does the face shield LOCK?
Kwame F on Jan 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, There is a solid lock that you can hear snap when locked.
Can you dscribe in words the difference between white and diamond white? is one flat and the other gloss? im having a hard time telling a difference.
Dennis B on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not seen these helmets side by side, but I believe the diamond white has more gloss than the plain white. Tough to say without physically seeing them. I purchased black frost and am very happy with the finish. I would probably choose white over diamond white if I was going for the more muted color. Hope this helps. Good luck!
My head measure is 58cms, ans I wear a Bell Qualifier DLX large size (58-59cms). The defiant is 57-58 in medium size and 59-60 in large size, which size will fit better for my head size? I am conrcen if choose medium to be too snug
Cesar F on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am just over 58 and got a medium. It was snug at first but brakes in really quickly and fits perfectly.
Has anyone combined the Pro Shade with a Dark Smoke visor?
John W on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have not but would guess it would be much to dark to see well.
Does the Pro Shade block UV light? I do not see anything indicating that this blocks UV rays.
A shopper on Aug 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, in my opinion it does not and in fact puts out a great deal of glare in a kind of blue/grey tone. It is not polarized and the tint is very light.I will be replacing the shade as soon as I find a better one.
