Arai Tour X3 review

I purchased an Arai Tour X3 last year to go with my Yamaha XT660Z Tenere.

I was sligtly concerned about the wind catching the peak at high speeds, so I did my research and read many reviews before buying. All seemed to rate the lid high.

Although the helmet is top quality and very comfy, I'm very dissapointed with it.

It catches the wind and starts to shake my head at anything above 55mph. At 80mph my vision is blurred and I quickly get a headache.

Now I have to ride without the peak, which works fine, but does look a little rubbish.

I'm not the only person who has had this problem, as I've met three people with the same lid and the same problem (who also ride bikes with a fair size screen).

As a result, I wouldn't recommend this lid.
