So, you think your Arai is the Chit???

I was reading this article and I thought I'd share it for those who haven't read it. It looks like my next helemt is going to cost $100 and be the best all around protection. But, don't take my word for it, now read this...............................Motorcycle Helmet Design, Helmet Standards and Head Protection - Gear Box - Motorcyclist Online

I've crashed in cheap and not so cheap helmets. I'll be glad to pay the premium for an Arai

I'm not saying Arai isn't good, or cheap helemts are better because they cost less. It's just a different theory on the best crash protection. It just so happens the best helmet they tested was $100. I'm not knocking Arai by any means.

Wasn't this discussed in an earlier thread?

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: So, you think your Arai is the Chit???

Hello and welcome to last year.

That article has been hashed and rehashed and evidently since motorcyclist magazine derives a huge portion of their operating costs from the distributor of their "best" helmet, they forgot what a real helmet test consists of . . .

SNELL and BSI have both successfully debunked just about everything in that article.
