1. THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE OUTER SHELL IS THE START OF THE HELMET MANUFACTURING
PROCESS. SUPER-FIBER STRINGS FORM THE BASE OF THE SHELL. BESIDES SUPER-FIBER,
OTHER MATERIALS SUCH AS KEVLAR®, NYLON AND CARBON FIBER ARE USED ON SELECTED SHELLS.

Arai Technical Pro Shops are specially selected dealers with a large stock of helmets on display and a strong parts stock readily available. Pro Shops offer complete technical service, including custom fitting, repairs and warranty service. The staff has been trained and certified by Arai with a solid knowledge about the production of an Arai helmet, the Arai philosophy and the R75 Shape concept.

MESH MOLD IN A CHAMBER,AND SHAPED INTO WHAT LOOKS LIKE A STRAW HAT.

5. THE VISOR OPENING, CHIN VENT AND OTHER VENT HOLES ARE CUT OUT BY A LASER-CUTTING ROBOT.

6. EVERY SHELL IS THEN CAREFULLY INSPECTED FOR THICKNESS, WEIGHT AND STRUCTURAL
CORRECTNESS. THEN IT IS SENT TO ANOTHER INSPECTION DEPARTMENT FOR FINAL INSPECTION.
EACH OUTER SHELL IS THEREFORE INSPECTED TWICE.

7. PASSED SHELLS ARE THEN UNDERCOATED AND SANDED. THIS PROCESS IS REPEATED TWICE,
TO GET A FINE, EVEN SURFACE FOR A SMOOTH FINISHING COAT.
