Helmet review: Arai Condor

1 of 1

What’s good? It’s the plushest lid I’ve ever used. I’ve worn others since and compared to the Arai they feel heavy, poorly made and uncomfortable.

This lid is actually second-hand – it used to belong to fellow MCN staffer Alison Silcox – but you wouldn’t guess.

It could just be that I have an Arai-shaped head, but the fit is great and it doesn’t move around, even at high speed and the handy visor lock stops it from blowing open during life-savers.

What’s not? The only thing I don’t like is the Arai visor-change system – it’s personal preference, but I just can’t get on with it and feel like I’m going to snap the mechanism every time.
