externalLink ARAI


Our mission has always been the protection and comfort of riders. Every Arai helmet is meticulously handmade, by craftsmen & women who are active participants in the creation of every Arai helmet they touch, not just workers assembling another thing to fill a quota . We don’t build Arai helmets to just meet safety standards; we build them to exceed our strict internal criteria first.
The foundation principles of protection have never been forgotten in six decades of helmet design and manufacturing.

externalLink SHOEI


The name SHOEI has long been synonymous with 'premium' in the motorcycle helmet market-a credential that hundreds of loyal men and women in our Japan factories wear with great pride. The evolution and production of our world-class helmet line is a meticulous process that combines the very latest in technology with consumer feedback, modern testing practices, advanced materials, and over 50 years of helmet building experience. Just like the very first SHOEI helmet built by our founder back in 1959, every SHOEI today is still handmade in Japan utilizing a sophisticated process that involves over 50 people for each and every helmet.
