Kawasaki Arai Partnership

We are excited to announce a new partnership between Kawasaki and Arai and with it, two limited edition, brand new dual branded helmets available to purchase!

With limited stock of each model spread over sizes XS to 2XL there are two models available, the retro-inspired full face Concept-X (sold by Arai UK as the Rapide), and the open-face Urban-V. As expected from Arai both helmets feature class leading technology alongside a bespoke Kawasaki design.

Priced at £540.95 for the “Concept-X” and £398.95 for the “Urban-V” there are just 36 of each available, so don't waste any time placing your order via the Kawasaki Shop! 

Kawasaki Arai LE22 Urban-V

Look cool. Stay cool. The new Arai Urban-V open-face helmet blends classic style with cutting-edge Arai protection, comfort and ventilation technology. It's a classic retro-style open-face helmet rich in period details like traditional stitched faux leather edge trim and interior accents. Though packed with modern technical features that enhance comfort and protection, like a stronger outer-shell silhouette and a (hidden) interior ventilation.

Outer shell: PB-cLc2 (Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction) Arai's proprietary (super fibre belt) Peripheral Belt, borrowed from our F-1 technology, greatly increases shell strength and flexibility while maintaining low weight and a lower centre of gravity. Positioned across the top of the eye port, this band contributes to the use of a thinner EPS liner which greatly enhances the upward field of view. A specially designed “mechanically expanded fibre mat”, sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of Arai's proprietary Super Fibre Laminates, is used to reinforce and bond these two Super Fibre layers without adding significant weight to the helmet. The latest “Z-Mixture” resins increases material adhesion requiring less resin for a stronger bond between materials for a thinner and lighter shell.

Kawasaki Arai LE22 Concept-X

Old School. Minus the compromises. The 1980s. Naked motorcycles. An attitude that made you feel different from everybody else. Introducing the Concept-X. Recalling the simple yet aggressive style of that era, this helmet came from the heart of Arai R&D. They loved the looks, but that was about it. Now, the Arai techs want old-school cool, to fit their style and motorcycle, but they want cool with modern Arai performance.

Concept-X's brute simplicity is the product of imagination, but make no mistake, while the retro style may grab attention it had to pass Arai's stringent in-house testing. So underneath the aggressive look you'll find a strong, lightweight PB e-cLc shell, with a smooth and round shape, reinforced with Arai's proprietary peripheral belt, to slide across surfaces and glance-off obstacles. The VAS-VC shield system, with its retro mechanical look, further enhances glancing off performance by lowering the visor pivot point to maximize a smooth upper shell.

Although a nod to the past, the Concept-X is very much a helmet of the present. Ready for a generation of modern riders that demand a new, old style - but with the performance and comfort only an Arai can provide.
