Helmet review: Arai Chaser

1 of 1

Arai Chaser from £249 on MCN shop
Miles covered/time:
5,024/8 months

What's good? It somehow actually fits my head (long on forehead, bulgy at the back... ooh, don't I sound attractive). I've put up with ill-fitting helmets for years but this is like inserting my head in a velvety nook.

Visibility is great, it's quiet and stable and opening the vents (easy in gloves) feels like switching on cool jets of iced water.

What's not? The dark visor didn't seal properly, leaving a puff of air ruffling my right eyelashes for weeks, however hard I forced it shut.

Laziness prevented me from getting the adjusters in the sidepods seen to by an Arai Five Star dealer, but now both visors fit fine.
