Today the first thing we have to say is that this isn’t an April Fools Day post! We promise!
Secondly, and more importantly, we have to tell you that we are very excited for this helmet to debut later this summer.
The Arai Defiant Helmet is a full-face helmet that is wearable by anyone, but is specifically designed with the naked, street-fighter and cafe racer crowd in mind. What makes it so special (we can hear you asking us through the interwebs)? Well, how about a kick-ass, integrated chin spoiler that reduces wind drag and exhaustion while riding longer distances? How about three-position vents on the chin, front and back that give you the maximum or minimum amount of airflow, for whatever your heating and cooling needs are? Or, what about a vastly superior shell shape to previous Arai entries that makes it a breeze to slide on and off? All of that sound good? Because all of it (plus a whole lot more) are included with every Arai Defiant helmet we’re going to carry.
Based on the already exceptional Arai Quantum line of helmets, the Defiant is an improvement in every way, from comfort, to style, to form and function. The visor system, featuring the SAI Max Vision Pinlock Shield is now so simple to lift and shut, even while wearing thick motorcycle gloves. In fact, the already-mentioned venting system has been redone so that all of the vents can be adjusted without you having to sacrifice safety for style while wearing gloves, since the snaps are now more easily moved when pushed into place.
While the helmet doesn’t release until the later part of June, 2013, we will all be anxiously awaiting the arrival of this great line of helmets into the number one Leather and Motorcycle Gear store on the Internet — LeatherUp.com
