Yes. But they are pricey. I probably wouldn't have bought one if I had to pay full retail for one. I got a great deal.

If I had to pay full retail for one, I'd probably be looking at a Scorpion. Before I found the Arai that I ended up with, I was looking at the Scorpion 700, 1000, and 1100.

And when I say pricey... I mean you can buy a cheap helmet for the price of just the face shield. The replacement shield for mine is $86. Not real happy about that.

$86???

I usually get mine for around 50... But they also last 2-3 times longer than cheaper ones too.

But I won't put anything but arai on my head. Once you go there, you can't go back...

I'd maybe race with a cheaper helmet, but not for street riding, no way no how.

i have such mixed feelings about arai. Everyone says that they have the best helmets but then after looking at their crash ratings they weren't much to brag about. What is it that everyone loves about them?

You can get clear ones for around $55. But the tinted and mirrored ones are $80+. Mine is the silvered mirror one. Love it. Just hat it's so damn expensive because I need a new one.

My favorite thing about them is the venting and the aerodynamics. It cuts through the wind with almost completely no wind resistance. At least that you can feel. Even turned completely to the side. And the venting is awesome.
