Arai recently introduced the Defiant-X as sort of its version of a retro-styled helmet. This helmet features a peripheral belt shell construction that is several layers bonded together with proprietary adhesives and then beefed up in the most critical areas with an aerospace-grade super fiber belt.
The new mouth vents have an internal shutter mechanism to keep the design clean looking and aggressive, with a retro look. Intake and exhaust ducts allow airflow through the helmet, along with the side slit air channels. The EPS liner has been developed from decades of research and is tuned to different levels of impact and densities.
The MAX-V Cavity shield and Pinlock lens come standard for improved visibility in changing weather conditions. This model also includes a smoked shield and sun visor. DOT & SNELL Certified. Available in a number of colorways with more on the way, according to Arai.
MSRP: $659.95 – $809.95
