The VX-Pro3: More innovation, more protection, more ventilation, more of everything you expect from an Arai. Intermediate-round oval shape: The VX-Pro3 has Arai's intermediate oval (IO) interior shape. Round instead of ridged shell: The current fad of helmet shells having exaggerated ridges and creases molded into the shell runs counter to Arai's philosophy. We believe a smooth surface is better at helping the shell do the job it's made for: quickly and smoothly dissipating impact energy. And like our rounded chin bar, it's also less likely to catch and dig in during a spill. Bottom line: Arai is driven by rider safety, not fads. What's "cool" isn't as important as what's better. Rounded chin bar and stainless grill: The VX-PRO3 chin bar design continues with Arai's unique rounded shape with less protrusion, making it less likely to catch and dig in during a spill, than most other designs. The oval form is actually based on the egg's, long known for its extremely strong and efficient shape. The expanded stainless steel mesh provides a strong barrier against roost, with a smooth surface to resist the buildup of mud and debris. Emergency cheek pad release system: Arai's decades-long commitment to building helmets that do more for riders comes this major innovation, the very first emergency release cheek pad design created specifically for motorcycle helmets. Developed to allow easier access to an injured rider, the VX-PRO3's cheek pads slide out easily via the integrated pull-tabs built into the underside of the cheek pad making helmet removal much easier for trained medical personnel. Top-mount ventilation diffuser: Technology borrowed from our high-speed road racing helmets, these large ventilation ducts utilize low pressure areas behind the vent to draw strong airflow through the helmet for truly impressive ventilation performance, even at moderate speeds on tighter tracks.
