Arai has announced a new addition to their 2010 UK range, which will be available from the end of July.

The Arai Axces has all the qualities expected of a helmet from the iconic Japanese manufacturer; superb comfort and unmatchable fit, plus high quality construction and detailing. It is also, by a fair margin, one of the most affordable helmets Arai has ever produced, providing an entry point to the brand for many motorcyclists who perhaps aspire to own and wear Arai, but can't because of economic reality.

Nothing has been saved in the Axces's construction, however. The shell is made with Arai's Super Fibre Construction (SFC) and features the same ring shaped strengthening in its lower section as found on the benchmark race specification RX-7 GP. Built into the outer shell are an air conductor rear vent, ducting for an optional top vent as well as side exhaust vents. A powerful chin vent features enlarged duct access for improved efficiency.

A triple density inner shell and fully washable interior add to the Axces's comfort and safety, as does the Arai-standard double 'D' ring strap fastening. The 2mm polycarbonate Pinlock® ready visor features twin brow vents, de-mist visor lock, Lever Release System (LRS) and mounts via Arai's aerodynamic recessed visor holder system.

The Arai Axces will be available in Plain Black or White, sizes XS-XXL with an RRP of £259.99.
