When you slip on an Arai helmet you know that your head is safe behind over 50 years of innovation. Arai calls it the "art and science of designing and building the best helmets humanly possible". Arai helmets have even been displayed in art museums as samples of design innovation, no doubt ones that have been copied by other helmet makers for years. Mr. Hirotake Arai started a hat making company over 65 years ago as an craftsman and a motorcycle rider. Today the company is ran by Michio Arai and his son Akihito, the third generation.
Arai helmets are virtually 100% handmade and every helmet shell is signed by the craftsman along the way. Multiple in-factory inspections insure the highest quality helmets on the market today. Arai's main goal is not to be the world's biggest motorcycle helmet company, but it is to be the best. Arai helmets believes that being the best is more important than having the highest sales volume.
Ranked number one in all eight motorcycle helmet satisfaction studies by J.D. Power and Associates is an unprecedented event, but one acheived by Arai helmets. These studies use votes from thousands of riders just like yourself who trust their life to the shell on their head every time they ride.
Arai helmets are subjected to testing to ensure compliance with safety standard regulations such as DOT and Snell ratings. The U.S. Department of Transportation sets requirements for federally approved helmets sold in the US. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 218 is the law that sets the standard by which all must abide. Arai helmets meet these standards get labeled "DOT". Other good indications that an Arai helmet and other motorcycle helmets meet federal saftey standards is another decal that reads Snell, a private, non-profit organization.
