Having recently purchased a retro-looking Spitfire, I needed a new helmet to match (as you do). I've worn Arai helmets since I was 16, and they have progressively improved over time. This one fits like a glove, is comfortable, and has very little wind noise. The quality and finish are first-class, and there's the option for a Pinlock if needed. Top marks from me, but you get what you pay for. Happy shopping!

George Calder

Outstanding helmet, impeccable fit, supremely comfortable, and excellent noise reduction. This is my second Arai, and they fit me perfectly; I wouldn't consider any other brand. The style complements my bike perfectly, so I'm extremely pleased.
