Every good explorer needs a good lid. It’s true. Whether it be the tri-fold pirate hats of yesteryear or the newest Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System “Magic” helmets (only about $600,000 each) for pilots of the F-35, the right helmet is key to making the most of your endeavors.
The new Arai VX Pro 4 helmet is the next iteration of the hugely popular VX Pro-3 and come to the game with a substantial array of upgrades that make a big difference. With a new peak visor that is 14mm longer and 5mm wider than before, you will get a greater level of roost deflection for those times when you are tearing up the track or the trail. Re-sculpted cheek pads are another upgrade and now do a better job of gripping the jaw snugly for superior fit while larger air outlets along the peak work to reduce the lift effect that can strain your neck. Two additional features of mega-value are the inclusion of a goggle strap locator on either side of the eye port and a re-configured chinbar screen. With the former drastically increasing the ease of operation, the latter upgrades functionality by giving you more room, as well as the option to fully remove the vent adjuster and gain maximum airflow.
Arai VX Pro-4 Helmet Review:
Unless your ride is a gazillion dollar, state-of-the-art, cloud-skipping, fighter-jet war-machine, it is tough to beat the precision, engineering, and overall design that comes from Arai. So set forth and enjoy the outdoors, appreciate the dirt, welcome the grime, and get the utmost out of your ride with the Arai VX Pro-4.
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
