Arai Rapide Speedblock Motorcycle Helmet (Matt Black/Red)
The Speedblock is designed by 360 Concepts, a well known designer in the custom scene. The design features speedblocks along the side of the helmet and a racing stripes-esque band from front to back transitioning into the base color. The Speedblock is a sophisticated design that will match a variety of motorcycles and appeal to anyone looking for a cool design. Available in a matte finish.
Based on a model that’s been available in Japan for a while known as the Rapide Neo it blends Arai’s safety-first approach with styling that’s every inch a cry back to the 1980s. A totally modern and up-to-date helmet that has been designed to work on a classic, retro, cruiser, custom, streetfighter, or indeed just about any kind of naked, sit-up bike.
Using Arai’s signature rounded shell that’s designed to ‘glance off’, meaning it spreads impact forces over a wider area so the impact energy isn’t concentrated in one area of the rider’s head.
Ventilation runs through channels in the impact-absorbing EPS, and while there are no obvious vents on the forehead, the eyebrow vents that bring in air through ports on the visor are designed to do a lot of the work.
Six meshed chin vents help prevent the visor fogging, these can be closed using a switch on the inside of the chinbar. The Rapide also has a Pinlock ready visor
A plush inner liner has been treated to keep it fresher for longer, as well as both temple and cheekpads that can be reduced by 5mm to give a more comfortable custom fit for the rider.
Emergency release tab on cheek pads to quickly and safely allow the emergency service to remove the helmet in the event of an accident.
