Best helmet I've ever had...even Arai - drjhawk
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Fit & Finish, Quiet
Cons: Some turbulence when looking over my shoulder at highway speeds.
I've had several Arai Corsar and Signet helmets over the years. The Arai always fits like a glove, but this XD4 is the best I've ever worn. Although there is more turbulence when looking around at highway speeds, it isn't bad. I was surprised by the increased peripheral vision over the Corsair. The shield mechanics requires a screwdriver, but the tool free changes on my Corsair caused me to break the hinge mechanism. I think there may be better air flow on the XD4 than the Corsair, but I haven't had a hot day ride to fully feel what the helmet delivers, yet. One distraction I've noticed is a slight whistling sound at highway speeds. It goes away if I raise my head. It is probably caused by visor angle. I went with hi-viz yellow and like the way the color pops and gets other people's attention.
