Arai Helmets – one family, three generations of passion, one mission. Since 1937, Arai is and always has been a family owned company, driven by the same family, with the same mission, through three generations. Three generations of riders who have committed themselves to that same goal: making the best helmet possible. Just pick up any Arai helmet and you can immediately feel the love and craftsmanship it was made with, each and every Arai helmet has passed through many hands before its good enough for you. Proud hands, which have put the name of the craftsman that built the helmet in writing on the inside of the outer shell. You will probably never see it, but it is there. Our mission has always been the protection and comfort of riders. Put on an Arai: you just feel good. You want to keep on riding. That’s why we build our helmets the way we do, because it’s not about what you pay, it’s about what you get. We hope you see the difference in Arai, and in the three generations of family behind it.
