Buy Arai Profile-V Full-Face Helmet?
Arai has added a brand new Profile helmet to the collection. The Arai Profile-V is an entry-level full-face helmet with a fresh and aggressive look, perfect for riders who are looking for an affordable helmet with the right comfort and safety that we are used to from Arai. Characteristic for this helmet is the high quality. Despite the term entry model you can speak of a true quality helmet. The price is a bit too, but the minimal quality of Arai is often better than the more expensive helmets from other brands. Another Characteristic of this helmet is the ease of use. This is partly due to the so-called Hyper ridge. This is an edge at the bottom of the helmet, which serves to lower the center of gravity and strengthen the helmet. In addition, the helmet is half a centimeter wider at the bottom.

Safety Arai Profile-V Helmet
The outer shell of this helmet is from PB-SNC2. This shell has a complex composition of different fiber layers and resin bonds. Simply put, we can say that it mainly consists of fiberglass. It is a super strong lightweight shell with an EPS inner shell with different densities to provide optimal shock absorption and impact energy distribution. And they have lowered the visor at Arai allowing more of the shell to be smoother, so that in case of impact the energy can be averted and energy absorption can be avoided as much as possible. Arai really focuses on this, which is really a unique approach compared to the competition. The Profile-V is equipped with a Double D closure. This closure is the best available at the moment. Furthermore, this helmet is provided with an ECE 22-05 certification
Ventilation Arai Profile-V Helmet
The chin ventilation is adjustable to different positions. You can direct the fresh air towards the visor or towards the face. There is also a ventilation opening above the eyebrows in the visor. The air is blown towards the forehead, which has a wonderful cooling effect. These ventilation openings are deliberately made in the visor, so as not to weaken the shell. Furthermore, there are 2 air intakes on top of the helmet that are lockable. There is enough cool air coming in and therefore there are 4 air outlets to drain the hot air. This kind of extended ventilation is typical of a sports or race helmet and therefore a big plus. The side outlets are provided with foam inside to limit wind noise.
Visor Arai Profile-V Helmet
The Vas-V Visor has a Variable Axis System. This means that the fixing points of the visor also move together with the visor when it is opened or closed. This is necessary , since Arai has lowered the VAS pivot to contribute to the safety of the helmet. They have copied the locking system of the visor from their formula 1 helmets. You can operate it in one smooth motion, with one finger, even with gloves on. And it is a very reliable locking system. The Max Vision visor offers optimal visibility throughout the year and comes with a Pinlock lens.
Lining Arai Profile-V Helmet
The Eco pure liner is removable, washable, antibacterial and is prepared for a communication system, with space for speakers in the cheek pads. The lining is available in different sizes to meet the personal preferences and individual fits of riders. To achieve a snug comfortable fit, the helmet is fitted with a Facial Contour System (FCS). This system ensures that the cheek pads are gently pressed against the cheeks. This is because a foam spring support is provided in the cheek pads, which compresses and springs back softly.
