Customer Reviews for Arai Tour X4 - Diamond White
Top top quality
Ok it's expensive but it's a true case of getting what you pay for. I'm new to motorcycling so this was my first helmet. I tried eleven helmets including this one across the entire price range. Ignoring the price for one second i'd have put this helmet at number 1 due to 1) fit/comfort perfect e.g. doesn't squeeze my ears 2) wide front opening gives excellent peripheral especially for the 'life savers'. Then add the top rated safety rating and it was a no brainer this was the helmet for me. Now warn it on 10 rides ... definitely the right helmet!!Read more
Worth every cent
It´s my first Arai and I´m deeply impressed. It´s very well engineered with a superb quality and elaborated to the tiniest peace of foam. Excellent.Read more
Is it worth it
If you're reading reviews & checking prices on this helmet you're probably asking yourself (as I was) can I justify paying sooo much for a helmet. In a word, yes. The first thing is the fit. Watch the Arai videos, measure your head and trust them to make the helmet size you need rather than guess. For me the fit is so close there is no movement if I shake my head but it's so comfortable straight out of the box. Visibility is amazing. It's got a big opening but the width is fantastic for your peripheral vision especially on life savers! One concern I had was the Pinlock. Lots of reviews saying it's hard to fit due to the visor shape. It is, but check out the instruction videos, set the pins to the widest setting, wear rubber gloves to prevent finger prints and don't be afraid to stretch the visor as shown in the video. My Pinlock touches in the centre but this doesn't affect the visibility. First commute in the rain and I can honestly say there was zero fogging, even better than my Evo 1 with the chin bar up! I ride 365 so this helmet will not last forever, if you only ride occasionally it may be a bit of a luxury, but if you can afford it buy it, you won't be disappointed.Read more
Great helmet, difficult Pinlock
It's my fourth Arai so I'm happy about quality and comfort, however the Pinlock insert seemed impossible to fit correctly.Read more
Great comfortable helmet
This is my first Arai helmet and it won't be my last, this is in my opinion a expensive helmet but as the old saying goes you get what you pay for. The build is top quality and the most comfortable helmet I've ever owned.Read more
High quality, with niggles...
My first 'dual sport' helmet. I bought this for the Arai quality and awesome looks and in that respect wasn't disappointed, especially when I added a black visor. The comfort is quite good, albeit with slight pressure points on my forehead on rides over 90 minutes. The peak is awesome and so useful in winter sun! But... It's quite a noisy lid, likely because of the disrupted air flow. I could put up with that but the biggest failing for me is the visor / peak removal. There is no 'quick detach' system on this lid, the only way to do it is by unscrewing four (2 each side) plastic screws & backing plates which release the visor and peak. Quite why Arai did this when they and pretty much every other manufacturer have QD systems perfected, I don't know. In my opinion it really spoils what is otherwise a really good helmet. Still love the Stormtrooper looks though... ;)Read more
Very solid helmet, a tad noisy but fits well.Read more
High quality, comfortable and cleverly designed
This superb, airy helmet is very comfortable and is beautifully finished in pearlescent white. Not the lightest helmet, I've found it to be very easy to wear for long periods without any discomfort or pressure-points. The visibility through the large visor is second to none and the supplied Pinlock insert effectively keeps mist at bay. The adjustable peak works especially well in low sun yet doesn't seem to be affected by the wind blast. The ventilation system has a huge range of adjustment and works extremely well, though the two small vents in the front can sometimes cause a slight high-pitched whistle at speed - easily controlled, however. With ear plugs in, which I have always worn no matter what helmets I've owned, the noise levels are quite acceptable for an adventure-styled helmet. I was very pleased to find this lid for sale at Sportsbikeshop at almost £100 less than J&S and it turned up the next day too, so all in all I have been very, very satisfied with my purchase. Recommended.Read more
Best dual sport helmet at speed
This helmet is quiet, comfortable and fits small heads well. At speed, many adventure helmets lift up or push onto your face. This helmet doesn't and the peak is adjustable so you can change it for the road and the trail. I've tried other makes but the Arai, although a little heavier, is the best.Read more
Top adventure helmet
The Arai TourX4 is a great looking adventure style helmet. The build quality, comfort and safety aspects are second to none and exactly what you would expect from a premium brand. Overall, I am really pleased with the purchase. Service and delivery from the Sportsbikeshop was first rate as was the competitive price. Would definitely recommend.Read more
