When your own family name is on the front of your helmet how good do you want it to be? For this reason “just good enough” is not good enough for Arai. The family pride is in making the best performing helmet possible. And only when it is made according to their philosophy, when Arai's craftsmen have given their very best, when each single helmet has been inspected five times, a helmet is worth to be finished with the famous oval Arai logo.
To build one Arai helmet will take about 18 man-hours. Each and every Arai helmet is made by hand. We say “almost 100% handmade“. The “almost” restriction is for an automatic laser beam cutting out e.g. the visor aperture. But from the bare outer shell to the finished helmet, including the advanced design applications, the hands of skilled craftsmen perform everything.
