Helmet review: Arai Atro-R
What’s good: For the first time in my 20-year journalistic career I’m writing a review of a lid without having to comment on its ability to absorb impacts.
Hurrah for me. It’s as comfortable as the top-of-the-range RX-7, and the five vents work well in summer.
- Compare and buy motorcycle helmets
What’s not: Changing visors is a brutal process - I still feel like I’m going to break something. Like a finger. And it’s noisier than my old Shark
