Re: 2005 Arai's ??

I love Arai and am on my second Quantum, but if I could be assured they'd fit my head (I know, I know), one of the new Suomy line would be gracing my melon these days. Damn, those lids are gorgeous!

Current information on '05 Arai stuff is right here...

And their site follows the lead of other manufacturers in that it is a hard to navigate artsy piece of crap this year.

Re: 2005 Arai's ??

I'm an avid Arai user and also on my 2nd Quantum/f. FWIW I tried on a friend's new Suomy (poggiali [sp?]) and the thing fits like buttah!! Very nicely made helmet w/ an excellent fit. I'll definately be checking those out before I buy my next helmet. I've got a big ole melon head and thought Arai's were the only thing that fit comfortably, Suomy was a nice surprise (just get 'em a size bigger!).

Re: 2005 Arai's ??

For my new bike I got an ICON Mainframe in solid silver color. It fits and feels better than my last ARAI at 1/3 the cost. Of course, I wouldn't have bought it if it didn't pass DOT and Snell. And it doesn't have those stupid black visor vents that are exactly the right size to block the view of a car.

I too have last years Edwards in Red/Silver. After seeing the new one at the end of last MotoGP season when he wore it, I wanted it. Then when I saw that it was available I really wanted it. I didn't really like his previous "Stars" model but this new one is SAWEET!

Re: 2005 Arai's ??

You either have a Shoei head or an Arai head.... IICON Mainframe is a good substitute for an Arai (for 3-4 times less the money too!).

True, although I believe the Shoei X-11 is more like the shape of the Arai. As always, try on prior to purchase. Shoeis and Arais are all I've ever owned.
