If you own a big KTM Adventure trailie or the new for 2009 SMT then this is the helmet you’ve been waiting for.

It’s based on the hugely popular Arai Tour X3 as used by Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman.    

The shell is the same Super Fibre Construction as used on the full-face race lids from Arai.

The inner shell is triple density for better protection, a rear spoiler reduces wind noise and  turbulence and reinforced ridges on the removable peak means it’s more stable at speed.

All the nice features of a modern enduro lid is then finished of with a very-offroad influenced orange, black and white colour scheme.

It retails at £412 from KTM dealers.
