Video Reviews
Hey this is Reuben with Competition Accessories and we just wanted to make a quick video on how you change the face shield out on the Arai helmet. A lot of people get intimidated by Arai helmet face shields because of the side pod they have where you cant see whats going behind it. What we have done on this helmet here is we installed a clear pod so we could give you a better look at the inner workings of the base plate mechanism and show you how it works. Basically to remove the face shield what I want you to see is this little gray lever here, there are one of those on each side of the helmet. When you raise your shield to the top position those will pop out. Now if your helmet is a little older or a little worn out they might not pop all the way out like a brand new helmet. With the face shield all the way up you just need to lift those levers all the way up. Once you have lifted those until they click, to take the shield off is very simple, you are just going to grab it from the top , rotate it back and pull it off. It comes right off really quickly. You will see guys out at the track if you watch racing at all like the isle of man for instance, they will pull into the pits and they swap face shields on or off in just a matter of seconds. It is one of those things you have to get the hang of. To reinstall the shield is a little trickier, there is a horse shoe shape cut out on the end of the shield here, that's going to line up with the top curve on the helmet or the pod and with the clear ones you can see the round tab that its going to slide over. Your going to slide that in on both sides and its not going to really click or anything, you just have to get it down and on to there like that. Once its in I find it easier to have the helmet facing away from you and then you are just going to close the shield. When you close the shield what happens is this opening this cut out right here slides over that little notch right there, so that is what limits the shield as It opens. That's how to change the Arai face shield out, hopefully that helps you out. You can go to our youtube channel if you click on this link in the upper right hand corner and subscribe to us.

Hey guys this is Reuben with Competition Accessories were here with the all new Arai XD4 which is a duel sport helmet perfect for adventure touring duel, sport riding ,any where from off road adventures to long distance trips around the world its the updated version of the Arai XD3 which i have on either side of this helmet. And at first glance your going to think they look extremely similar and that's because they are Arai XD3 have been taken around the world countless times by many riders its a very very well received helmet and there's not actually too much to improve on but with Arai they have taken the XD3 and they have made it just that much better with the XD4 and the biggest thing that we've noticed with the XD4 is the improved ventilation obviously its still a little bit cold right now i have put about 30 miles on this particular helmet i can tell you right off the bat i was really impressed with it and i wanted to show you some of the features and what makes it an upgrade from an XD3 . First things first its an all new shell shape , again kind of hard to tell from looking at them side by side but it is a slightly more aerodynamic design its still going to be that complex laminate construction that Arai is famous for its fiber glass shell its incredibly stiff and strong its going to disperse impact over a large area its going to keep you very well protected it is SNELL 2010 approved as well as DOT a big thing that you will notice though but if you look at them side by side is the visor peak is just slightly taller so its actually going to flow through the air better then the previous XD3 did and i can attest to that i had this up to 80 miles an hour on the freeway yesterday and it behaved very very well , and one thing i did want to point out is the XD4 as well as the XD3 are designed to be worn in an upright riding position designed for duel sport and adventure style bikes you'll have a more upright seating position.So when your sitting straight up facing into the wind this helmet is very well mannered and its surprisingly not very loud either . I didn't have ear plugs in when i road yesterday and it flew through the air very cleanly felt comfortable obviously with a larger peak like this and a larger chin bar then you would find on a typical full face street helmet , when your doing head checks you do notice a little bit more wind drag but its nothing that isn't manageable. The other thing that you can do with the XD4 as well as the XD3 is remove the visor completely so if your going to log several hundred miles of just pure interstate riding for a day its just a few screws on either side of the visor and remove the peak you could also remove the shield if you'd like and wear goggles if your going to do a lot of off road riding . Ive found personally that you can run goggles underneath the face shield so you can run goggles with just the shield up in the up position and you could also remove the shield completely and wear goggles. Now talking about the shield probably the first thing that i tell people when you first try a duel sport helmet like this especially with the XD4 is the amount of vision you get out of the helmet coming from a full faced street helmet you just have so much larger so much more room in the eye port so vision is incredible out of this helmet absolutely nothing in your peripheral from the helmet shell itself it comes all the way to the back and then its a very tall eye port as well so you can see down to your gages very easily so you don't have to move your head as much in this helmet because its very easy to look around out of the eye port and the large eye port again accommodates being able to wear large goggles underneath if your going to do more off road riding where dust or debris from other riders may be a concern . So first thing about the face shield mechanism is it is actually a dual-cam shield pivot, instead of pivoting up on one access what it does is it raises up and actually kind of slides back to keep the shield nice and low which really improves aerodynamics if you want to ride with the shield raised . To remove the visor and the shield there's these two clear plastic screws that are on either side basically your just going to quickly unscrew those and that will release the visor and under here you can see the mechanism for removing the shield and it basically pops right off so its real easy to swap out. Obviously not quite the same as a street helmet but still very simple for shield changes. There are tinted shields available for the XD4 there's also a pin lock ready shield available . If you want to you have the anti fog capability of the pin lock system there is a pin lock ready shield as well as pin lock specific inserts for the XD4. Another thing while were still on the visor that they approved , you'll see that they now have brow vents built in , these are brought over from the street line the XD3 did not have these these vents are built right into the shield itself but it doesn't just go straight into your face it has small ducts that are built in its going to be kind of hard to see in the video here , basically the air that is coming in the shield is going to directed down through these ducts and around to your temple so its just one more way to get some cool air to your head and when were talking about ventilation that's probably the biggest area that has been improved with the XD4 when your doing adventure style of riding some times you might slow down a lot if your tackling a high mountain pass or something where your slowing down where the terrain gets a little more technical or more challenging you might not be running at such high speeds so having very efficient ventilation and thats very important on a helmet like this first thing you'll notice is the chin bar vent its a similar style to the XD3 but enlarged so you get more air flow , it is completely close able you can also make adjustments on the inside this also might be difficult to show have the air directed straight in towards your mouth or you can direct it up towards the face shield to help reduce fogging and then the side intake vents have the metal screen on them can be opened and closed from in here you can really customize how much air is coming in and coming through the chin bar . There's an adjustable chin curtain along the base of the chin bar here and its small out of the way when you get the helmet on and if you need a little bit more protection from the elements from the rain or cold you can actually extend that to actually protect the inside of the helmet a little bit further. So you've got plenty of ventilation on the chin bar , new vents on the shield there are intake vents at the top of the helmet function as scoops these work really well in conjunction with the visor the peak is going to direct air down into these air scoops if you open them your going to feel a lot of air coming down on top of your head and then another thing you will really notice is the exhaust vents , probably most improved from the XD3 to the XD4 is the style and the way they engineered the exhaust vents to work. The rear cowls have additional outlet holes that are going to work to pull warm air out of the helmet its one of the most effective ways to cool a helmet . As you ride a vacuum is formed behind your head and that vacuum is going to drag the warm air out of the helmet these are close able also you can see there are small sliders here you can adjust how much you want those to function , and then you have some static exhaust vents at the base of the helmet these little cowls work the same way these are always open so warm air again is going to be drawn out here. And if you can tell on the camera it might be hard to see but they have redesigned the shape of them they have a little bit more of a lip to it so its going to create just a little bit more vacuum draw just that little bit more of hot air out of the helmet keeping you more comfortable your definitely going to see some major improvement to the ventilation of the XD4 . Now moving on to the interior of this helmet, Arai uses what they call their dry cool lining . Dry cool is a moisture wicking fabric its going to keep you comfortable again in warmer conditions if your sweating a lot its going to draw moisture away from your skin keeping you comfortable . Again were seeing Arais quick release cheek pads and these are emergency release cheek pads if you were to have an accident you'll see it has orange tabs that have instructions for emergency personnel to remove the cheek pads. Basically there's a small tab for them to look for and they basically can pull those out very easily . Once they've pulled the cheek pads completely out of the helmet you'll see how much larger the opening is so they can pull the cheek pads out then the opening on the base of the helmet is that much larger at least enough to slide that off your head with minimal impact to your neck , and another thing i wanted to show you about the cheek pads is if you remove the dry quick fabric lining , there was the tab we were looking for, you'll see that these pads have their whats called facial contour support . Basically what it is a spring loaded system on the cheek pad when you pull the helmet on and off its going to squish that cheek pad out of the way but once the helmet is on and your face is in side the helmet this is going to spring back against your face creating a little bit better of a seal for the base of the helmet which gives you a quieter ride and its also more comfortable , there's also a 5 millimeter pad on the top of the cheek pad if you feel its just a little tight in the cheek area you can simply peel that away replace the cover and instantly have a little bit more room in the cheek pad area without having to go purchase an additional set of cheek pads now if you need more room then that if you actually have to go the other direction and take up a little more room in the helmet you can obviously purchase different size cheek pads from Arai and we carry those as well , you can remove the rest of the interior which is fantastic for a duel sport type of helmet where you might be sweating in it more then your typical street helmet . There's basically just two snaps at the back of the crown liner and two snaps at the front and that's going to come right out . They use a lot of open material and mesh material in this as well as dry cool fabric just to work very well with the ventilation that's built in with the helmet itself . There's also 5 millimeter tear away pads in the liner, they are temple pads right behind this mesh here you'll see these small pads along the sides of the temples you can peal these off its attached with some thin glue and if you need a little bit more room in the temple area you can modify that part of the helmet as well again just giving you that extra bit of custom fit that Arai is known for , and then if you look at the interior basically you can see that there is several holes in the EPS liner there are nice large openings where the cheek pads go if you wanted to install a speaker system or communication system if you can do that you also have a nice lining around the chin bar so your fully protected in this helmet. One thing Arai does that is fantastic in my opinion is they use a one piece EPS liner so this foam liner what is its job to do once the shell has spread the impact the interior foam is going to absorb that impact so less energy is transformed to your head and what Arai does is they actually use five different densities of foam but its only one piece . Some manufactures circumvent that by using two different pieces of foam that are different densities what Arai does is a little bit more advanced they take up to 5 different densities and mold them into one EPS liner that way there's not multiple pieced to move around its going to be a uniform EPS liner its going to do a fantastic job of absorbing impact and keeping you safe. So that's our first look at the Arai XD4 I've put about 30 miles on this particular helmet so far and I've got to say I've very impressed with it , if you have a passion for duel sport or adventure style riding where your going off road and on road this is probably the best compromise in on and off road helmets that you can get its going to work fantastic on the street works really good off road as well , so check these out on our website at competition accessories .com

    XD4 shield - Moose   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Great optics, perfect tint, excellent fit. Does not fog up
    Cons: not a true quick change shield but this is minor

    My wife and I both have XD4 helmets from Comp Acc. I wanted someting other than the supplied clear shield but was not sure if the dark or medium would be best. We ordered both as my wife was leaning toward the medium tint and I was leaning towards the dark. We are both very happy. The dark is in no way too dark for daytime conditions. The meduim tint would work fine into dusk conditions. They are a bit pricey but I have no complaints about the quality of the optics and the fit.

    At last, a reason to prefer the Corsair V - Duke W   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy change-out, works flawlessly with the pinlock inserts designed for it
    Cons: Not standard on every Arai helmet it fits

    Anti-fog inserts are a must on Arai helmets, so when I needed a new Corsair V, I bought one of these at the same time. The difference is night and day from the old-style pinlock shields. There is no limitation to the clear field of vision from the rider's point of view. The last reason to prefer an older helmet is now gone well, except for the paint schemes -- I really miss the Tommy Gun paint job -- they don't have anything that evocative any more. Yes, I know that the Corsair V is supposed to be a racing helmet, and they therefore think you don't need an anti-fog visor, but this is safety equipment, guys, and should be standard on every helmet it fits. Oh, one more note if you have a spare old-style pinlock insert, be aware they won't fit the new design. Buy an insert at the same time, and you won't have to wait to be safe go ahead, ask me how I found that out.

    Call it a necessity - Duke W   CA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Product actually works as advertised, really wide, tall field of clear vision
    Cons: Shouldn't these be on every Arai helmet

    Anyone who's ever worn a helmet in the rain knows that you either anti-fog, or you don't see. While there are lots of ways to anti-fog, the best way is to not have to in the first place. If your face shield is anti-fog, you don't have to worry about whether you treated it or not, or whether you put the anti-fog in your pocket before you left. That's why this product rocks so hard. It flatly works. Unless you're a mouth-breathing troglodyte, you won't fog this. The combination of pinlock pocket and silicon seal works to provide a clear, fog-free view that will last a couple of rainy seasons of daily use ask me how I know. Another plus this new design puts the edges of the anti-fog area outside the seals for the eyeports, so your view is unrestricted. Nice The only drawback this doesn't come standard on every Arai helmet. It really should. They're one of the safest helmets on the market, so why doesn't this vital piece of safety equipment come standard on every helmet they sell Don't know, but if yours didn't come with one of these, you need to get one -- before you need it and don't have it. Don't delay, buy today

    Fog Free and Happy in my Arai - Side Road   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Easy to install, Love it.. Now I am Fog Free..
    Cons: [None]

    No fogging issues with this visor. Now, if it would only keep my glasses from foggingRiding last winter with the RX-Q, I had a lot of fogging issues. While it was easily mitigated with the front vent, who really wants to open it at 30 some odd degreesI have read that other people had issues with the pins. I just straightened out he visor, as shown in the video, and popped it in place. Very simple and took but a couple of seconds to install it.It does take a little bit to get used to as it gives the impression of being cracked open on the bottom when all you are seeing is a small area that is not covered by the insert.

    Works good, certainly fog free - RON   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fog Free, Good Fit
    Cons: slight reflection in some conditions

    Works well. I have the dark smoke and light smoke on separate shields, easy interchange. Dark for sunny, light for daytime cloudyovercast. Only negative is minimal ... slight reflectivity off the inner surface, so on bright days the lens is not crystal-clear ... but it's close, and it doesn't fog.

    This review is for Arai RX-Q - Corsair V Helmet Shield Cover Sets
    Corsair V Helmet Shield Cover - poule d'eau   LA Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: easy to replace. good fit and form. nice product, quality parts.
    Cons: hard to match color. selection limited

    sometimes schitt happens and a great helmet is useless without a proper working face shield. Arai has the parts and it's an easy fix. remember to use the silicon lube, may help the shield from sticking and breaking the shield cover tab. wish the color selection was larger, my grey replacement was darker than original helmet color but looks ain't everything - safety first.

    Arai XD4 Helmet Replacement Breathguard - Tom S   CA Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: No pros
    Cons: Uncomfortable.

    I bought it but don't like it at all. It was out after 10 minutes. It presses on my nose actually closing it.
