Customer Reviews for Arai Tour X4 - Catch Yellow
Best helmet I've ever worn
I rode 150 miles to my nearest sportsbikeshop to get this helmet. I didn't know my size but booked it for a try on. It was tight to first put on, but was a really good fit. The D ring chin strap was rather difficult to get my chubby man size fingers too, but is comfortable. I rode the 150 miles home with my new purchase on to try out. In my old helmet, I wore ear plugs and decided to do the same with the X4. It was really comfortable and quiet. I thought the peak would make it noisy, but wasn't too bad. Having the pinlock fitted made a massive difference. But I would suggest having a face mask or breath deflector. Also, as I rode home westbound, the sun was very low and strong. One thing I was missing, was an internal sun visor. Due to the tight fit of the helmet, I couldn't fit my sunglasses on. I have looked for a replacement dark visor for the x4, and found one for £79.00 I would recommend this helmet.Read more
Comfortable and quiet
Of the many styles and makes of helmets I've worn none can compare. As you slip the Arai Tour X4 over your head you can feel the quality, the padding is in just the right places to make it feel you could wear it all day. The noise reduction compared to my other helmet was amazing, as on one ride I forgot to wear my ear plugs and wasn't disturbed by traffic or road noise. As always a prompt efficient service from Sportsbikeshop, well done.Read more
Have an ARAI RX7GP also, but the X4 is just so much better for general road use on a touring bike. You see soooo much more with the wider field of view. Really great quality helmet and surprisingly quiet too. Really like it thank you.Read more
Fantastic touring lid.
I bought this lid to tour Spain and Portugal. I've found that helmets primarily designed for the racetrack don't have adequate ventilation for warmer climates. And that open faced helmets tend to dry my face out on long journeys, as well as providing a lesser degree of protection. The fit of the helmet is excellent. It has no tight spots and the cheek pads don't pinch. It feels light and the peripheral vision is second to none. I removed the peak for normal road use. Which tended to catch the wind at motorway speeds, making lifesavers a little awkward on a sports bike. Everything is as it should be on an Arai quality lid... The visor is optically correct, ventilation is excellent and the visor doesn't tend to fog up so much as other styles of helmet in bad weather. To the extent that I didn't bother with the pinlock. The only minor drawback with this helmet is that. It tends to produce a little more wind noise, than I would expect from an Arai lid. Even with the peak removed at high speed. In brief: Fantastic lid.... The best I have used for touring hot Countries and the UK…. Remove the peak and plug up, for high speed long journeys!Read more
Should have waited...
Brilliant helmet, love everything about it (but should have waited a couple of weeks before buying as I've just noticed that SBS has dropped the price to under £400!). Great fit, very comfortable and of a quality which inspires confidence in the wearer. Would I buy another? Absolutely.Read more
