Who is Arai?

Arai Helmet is a Japanese company that specializes in manufacturing helmets for motorcycles and other motorsport use. The company’s history can be traced back to the 1900s when Yuichiro Arai produced kepi-style caps. When the company was taken over by his son Hirotake Arai in 1930, he produced sun barrier caps for the military.

After the war, the company started making shirts and overalls and also made safety helmets for construction workers. As an avid motorcyclist himself, he, later on, decided to create helmets specifically designed for motorcycle use, and the rest is history. Today, Arai is one of the most recognized brands when it comes to helmets worldwide.

Throughout the years, the company has continuously improved and developed its helmet design to make it safer for riders. Their product has been used by many racers since the 1970s and has helped in saving a lot of lives of many drivers from different racing disciplines.

All Arai helmets are hand-built with each having a fibre reinforced plastic shell incorporated with multiple reinforcing parts, creating a round base known as the “Bird’s nest”.

Safety is their Priority
