The latest expression of the ultimate off-road helmet, the brand new VX-Pro4 evolved from the much-loved VX-Pro3 model. So it’s still the perfect choice for MX, enduro, and off-road use. Just as in every Arai helmet, the basic and simple organic shell shape is based on the R75 shape concept. The absence of exaggerated edges or protrusions on the shell should not be mistaken for a lack of imagination. It’s a visual demonstration of our commitment to maintaining the integrity of the shell with real-world impact performance.
Arai is the only company offering multiple interior-fit shapes to better address the infinite variety of riders’ head shapes and sizes. No one pays more attention to the subtle variations and infinite possibilities of the human head shape than Arai. Why? Because it’s the secret to getting the best comfort and fit.
So for more than three decades, Arai has pioneered different shapes – and even different proportions within those shapes – in our various helmet models, working to offer a better fit for more people.
A SMOOTH INSTEAD OF RIDGED SHELL: The shell itself is consistently round and smooth, maintaining the R75 Shape concept in areas above the acknowledged test line and influencing those below the test line. Here, the rounded chin bar maintains the same compact shell length as the previous model, the VX-Pro3. The result is less protrusion, which has proven to be less likely to catch and dig in during a spill.
SHELL MATERIAL: In order to maximize performance, we precisely assemble the shell from multiple proprietary components. Super Fiber, one of the primary materials, costs up to six times more than standard fiberglass but provides 30% higher tensile strength and increased penetration resistance. The cLc (complex Laminate construction) method demands precise and time-consuming assembly by master craftsmen from many individual pieces.
CHIN BAR VENT GRILL: Installed on the uniquely rounded chin bar, the stainless mesh grill is now mounted from the outside on the exterior vent cap and can be easily removed for cleaning or damage replacement. The vent cap is also designed to break away from the chin bar in the event of impact.
REAR DUCT: The Air-Through top-rear-duct center brace also functions as a goggle-strap locator. The diffusers can be removed or replaced quickly and easily by removing a single screw on the rear-duct center brace.
GOGGLE-STRAP LOCATOR: The Goggle-Strap Locator keeps the goggle strap in position even during aggressive, competitive riding. The new top-rear-duct center brace, together with the side port cowlings, also assist in keeping the strap in position on the side and back areas.
NEW PEAK: The new peak is 14mm longer and 5mm wider than the previous model for improved ability to deflect roost and flying debris. To compensate for increased lift, the air outlets on the new peak have been made larger as well.
EMERGENCY RELEASE SYSTEM: The revised Emergency Release Cheek Pad system has the release tab repositioned and is easier to access by rescue staff.
REMOVABLE NECK ROLL: The all-new removable neck roll allows easy and convenient cleaning of the helmet.
A nice improvement in comfort and speed. I’m pleasantly surprised going to a larger sized tire would show a noticeable impact in comfort and speed . These are excellent tires for the mostly dry and not extreme gravel paths that I ride.
After approximately 1000 miles in the last 4-5 weeks, including a 210 mile and 156 mile ride, this saddle is proving to be the best and most comfortable of the 5 or 6 others I've tried over the last 3-5 years, including a Brooks B17, Specialized Power, Fizik Arione, Ergon, and others.
It may not work for your anatomy and bib short combination, but it appears to be just what mine needed. Good luck!
It's good. I feel invincible when I wear it. I don't do any crazy stuff, so...
It's lightweight and the air blows through the slots to keep my noggin cool.
Very reasonable price point.

Switching to the Five Ten shoe has been amazing. The stiffness and grip - and the confidence - on the pedals that these shoes provide will definitely improve your rides. I’m able to generate more power with a bit less effort. I ride about 100 miles a week in mixed trail, beach and other conditions. These shoes have really imp to over the fun and performance. Essential equipment for the serious open pedal rider!
Finally used for the first time today. Installation was very easy. The front slide made it easy to load the kayak. I have a 4 Runner and once I lifted the kayak to the slides just had to push the kayak up into place. Would definitely recommend these.
One of my favorite online MTB stores. They usually always have what I need. Great products, top of the line components and gear. The customer service is one of the best. They are fast and friendly.
