Arai VX-Pro4 Off-Road Helmet Announced

Arai VX-Pro4

Following up on the highly acclaimed VX-Pro3 model, Arai Helmet, Inc., makers of world class, handmade helmets for more than six decades, is proud to announce its worthy successor: the all-new VX-Pro4.

With a more aggressive look and a host of updated features and improvements, the VX-Pro4 is still at its core an Arai. And like all Arai helmets, that means its shell is made entirely by hand, by dedicated craftsmen, built to Arai’s unique R75 Shape concept.

This results in a rounder, smoother and stronger shape that will more easily glance off impacts, instead of catching. The VX-Pro4’s shell is constructed using Arai’s exclusive Super Fiber for exceptional strength and elasticity, while its uniquely rounded chin bar maintains the same compact shell length as the VX-Pro3, resulting in even less likelihood for catching or digging in during a crash.

New features abound on the VX-Pro4’s exterior. An updated chin bar vent grill, which now mounts from the outside and can be easily removed for cleaning or damage replacement, is also designed to break away from the chin bar during a spill.

Updated Air-Through top front, top rear and side port ducts greatly improve ventilation on the VX-Pro4, while also being easier to clean and maintain compared to the VX-Pro3. The new top rear duct diffusers can be easily removed or replaced simply by removing a single screw on the rear duct brace.

Up front, the VX-Pro4 sports a new peak that is 14mm longer and 5mm wider for improved debris and roost deflection. Larger air outlets in the peak also help to reduce lift and buffeting.

To aid with goggle strap positioning, the VX-Pro4 features innovative strap locators in the side port cowlings and top duct center brace, helping to keep goggles in place during aggressive riding.

Interior updates on the VX-Pro4 include the removable neckroll for convenient and easy cleaning, plus an improved emergency cheek pad release system, with tabs that are easier to access by rescue staff.

“The Arai VX-Pro3 has been one of the most acclaimed off-road helmets available,” said Brian Weston, Managing Director of Arai Helmet, Inc. “With its improved features, updated design and legendary Arai focus on rider protection, we’re confident the new VX-Pro4 will only build on that tradition.”

The all-new Arai VX-Pro4 will be available for purchase in October 2014, in a variety of color and graphic choices, including White, Black Frost, Tip Orange, Tip Red, Tip Blue, Tip Green, Tip Yellow and NuTech. MSRP will be $599.95 to $609.95 for solids and $729.95 to $739.95 for graphics and racer replicas.
