Just arrived in the UK are four brand new colourways for the Arai SZ-F open face helmet. For many years the only SZ-F options have been Aluminium Grey, Black or White and while the solid paint options continue in 2010, lining up alongside them are the retro-cool Banda Black, Banda Red and Banda Blue. Also in stock for the first time is the bright and bold SZ-F Lady Camo, designed specifically for women.

The SZ-F has proved a popular and versatile choice for many different types of rider and features a CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell, triple density inner shell plus fully integrated venting, including Arai's patented brow vents. Its removable cheek pads are available in six sizes and the interior itself is fully washable. Arai's LRS (Lever Release System) ensures swift removal of the 2mm polycarbonate visor and the double D ring fastening system ensures correct strap tension.

The SZ-F, like all Arai helmets, offers a peerless fit; the Japanese brand's reputation for quality, comfort and safety has recently been further reinforced as, for the eleventh consecutive year, Arai came out top of the JD Power and Associates Motorcycle Helmet Satisfaction Study. Also, Arai placed three of its helmets in the overall top ten - including the number one spot - of RiDE Magazine's 2009 RiDER Power Survey, an exhaustive poll taken from 5000 readers, reported in the November 2009 issue.

Available in sizes XS-XXL the Arai SZ-F Banda and Lady Camo have an RRP of £324.99.
