Arai will be fully supporting Charley Boorman, Si Pavey and Matt Hall when they leave Lisbon on 31st December to take on the toughest challenge of their lives.
The Dakar, one of the most physically and emotionally demanding races in the world, will see Charley and the team using both the Arai off road VX Pro and versatile Tour X helmets to tackle the harsh terrain.
The support team and camera crew will also be equipped using Arai's open face GP Jet F model.
The whole Dakar experience will be captured in a TV series, DVD and book from preparation and training through to the actual competition.
This will be the second time Arai have been involved with Charley supplying helmets for both him and Ewan McGregor on their epic Long Way Round journey.
