Arai Launches Its First Retro Full-Face Moto Helmet With The Concept-X

Dec 6, 2019

Dating all the way back to 1926, Arai is without a doubt one of the world’s leading premium helmet brands — with each of its lids being made by hand in Japan today, just as they were over nine-decades-ago. After spending the last few years on the proverbial sideline as other helmet manufacturers launched various vintage helmet models, Arai has finally pulled the trigger on releasing its own retro-style offering with the all-new Concept-X.

Inspired by full-face helmets from the 1980s, the Concept-X is built around a lightweight PB e-cLc shell, made in a trio of sizes and reinforced via the Japanese outfit’s proprietary peripheral belt. Offered in sizes XS through XXL in a dozen different color schemes, the Concept-X utilizes Arai’s Free Flow ventilation, facial contour, VAS-VC visor, emergency release, and Variable Axis systems. Inside, there’s a plush, washable removable, and antimicrobial liner as well as comm-system-ready speaker recesses. And, unlike many of the retro-flavored offerings from competitors, the Concept-X doesn’t just look the business, it legitimately offers the level of world-class protection that has made Arai the choice of countless race professionals and champions.
