Product Review: Arai Axces II
Arai Axces II £299.99
Tester: Andy Davidson
Time used: Six months/3500 miles
An affordable Arai! The Axcess II is Arai’s budget lid, although there’s nothing obviously budget about the quality. It feels and looks just like an Arai should. It’s super comfortable and comes with a vent at the front and one on the spoiler; the vents do a great job of letting the air flow through the lid. Comfortable from day one.
The helmet lacks a chine curtain, which lets it down in the colder months. The only other concession to budget is that the skull padding can’t be removed, so you have to wash in situ.
