Arai Tour X4 Cover - UK
Customer Product Reviews
Great value & excellent quality
Bought as a second helmet and the fit of Arai is perfect for my head shape. Same size selected as a previous Arai purchase a long time ago. Excellent features and speedy service. Recent 150 mile on road / off road trip confirmed the quality
Perfect helmet for the job
I've had quite a few Arai's over the years with my sports bikes and now I'm getting into the adventure bike thing I wanted a nice adventure style helmet. So glad I decided to go with Arai again and this is probably the most comfortable helmet to date! Fits my head perfectly, and the vents work really well when things start getting sweaty. Only down side is visor isn't as quick to change and needs unbolting along with the visor, so I carry clear glasses to wear in case I get caught out when it gets dark and I've got a tinted visor on. Another nice feature on these, as with on their RX7 is the pull down chin spoiler. It really does stop the wind whistling up underneath. I have also put a Sena system in it and it was really easy to fit as the cheek pieces just pop out and the covers come off. The speaker sit really well and are in the perfect position and very comfortable.
Great helmet for winter
Bought this as a second helmet for winter. It is so comfortable with a wind stopper neck warmer underneath. I ride a sports bike and removed the peak for road riding. Top quality helmet as you would expect from Arai. Great service from SPORTSBIKESHOP as it arrived within 24 hours and had a free Pinlock insert included.
Excellent peripheral vision
My second Tour X4, (had the last one for 5yrs) for my needs, the perfect lid. Comfortable fit, excellent peripheral vision, plenty of vents. Works well with the visor on at under 90mph, better to take it off at higher speeds. All the usual Arai plus'es including Pinlock and a variety of different visor tints. Although visor changing not as quick as other Arai's, its only four screws, so hardly the end of the world. As ever, excellent service from SBS, next day delivery in their purpose built helmet delivery box, so no concerns about transit damage.
Great helmet and excellent service
I've had several Arais before so was confident the fit would be good. Sportsbikeshop service was great, I went in and tried on several other helmets with no pressure at all. The price was also the best I could find. Helmet only 4 star as its a bit heavy compared to some others.
I have used Arai helmets for years so know what to expect. This is my first Tour and I wasn't disappointed. The peak works well to cut out the glare from the sun. A bit tight at first but adjustable padding cured that. Highly recommended quality helmet.
Fit and finish are second to none. The expression fits like a glove should be fits like a Arai Tour X4! OK bit of a mouthful but a 200 mile non-stop ride without niggling discomfort like you would get with a lesser lid makes the price tag worth it. Visor is a god send on the low in the sky sunny days and plenty of adjustable ventilation, the black sparkle paint is just darn smart!
Having returned to motorcycling after 3 years I was happy to find Arai helmets were in fit and finish as good as ever. 500 quid for a coloured one made this black one top value. I would never call it plain black as the paint has a deep lustre and sparkle to it.
Best helmet ever
I bought this for a BMW off road skills course I was doing and also for a hot weather helmet for a later holiday. The helmet is amazing. I have a Schuberth C3 Pro and this is better than that. It feels quieter somehow. The ventilation on this is second to none, especially the unique visor vents. They really help keep you cool. The visor is ultra quiet as well, no buffeting or vibration. This is a quality lid and the one I go to every time.
X4-for Xtreme Xcellence.
Over the past 40 odd years I have owned lots of different makes and colours of helmets. This is by far the best looking Arai I have owned. It fits really well and looks fantastic. In diamond black with an amazing shine with glitter effect. Even though I have rated it as high as I have, there is 1 small fault. The holes inside from the vents concentrate the air to that point on your scalp and becomes very sore. The way round this was to stick a strip of duck tape over the holes on the inside of the helmet. Very easy to do. Problem solved. Another great feature is the peak removal. Arai supply the side plates to keep the visor in place. Looks great with or without. Hardly any buffering with the peak attached. A superb helmet. The best I have ever owned. Well worth the price.
Easy change from other Arai's
This really is a great quality helmet. I've always had other Arai helmets so sizing and fit are easy to get used to. A little heavier than other helmets but feels like good quality. Changing the visor or removing the peak are a little fiddly so you don't want to do it too often but its not a fault, its a peaked helmet after all. Brilliant.
