Customer Reviews for Arai Tour X4 - Honda Africa Twin
Is it worth it?
It's a question everyone will ask. I took the plunge after mid range AGV's for many years. I have now tested the helmet in all weathers, fog, frost and gale force winds, the joys of riding all year round to work! Firstly, do not be put off by those who had trouble with the pinlock, it's a nonsense to say it's hard. Watch the videos on pinlock site, you can adjust the little screw on the visor to get a perfect fit and it's doddle to fit, just copy what they show you, there is a technique! The helmet itself fits perfectly and I had not tried one before ordering. There is no buffering or head wrench from the peak even at high speed, the visibility gains are a must in traffic, the visor area seems much bigger than my AGV's. Arai's are sometime heavy but this is just fine, no noticeable difference. So to sum up, visibility excellent, Pinlock works perfectly even on a foggy morning, ensure all the vents are open though to get the best from it, weight is good and the vanity to finish, it looks the business! Yea, it cost a packet but in my opinion, well worth it!Read more
