The Freeway-Classic fulfils the fundamental functions of a motorcycle helmet for those who like to take it easy and experience the world around them to the fullest.

 

  • Outer shell: SFL (Special Fibre Laminate).  Strict quality controlled construction using special fibre layers, crowded with fibres right to the shell surfaces and bonded with special resins formulated by Arai, to disperse impact energy over the widest possible area – the shell’s main job – through strength, structural integrity and impact flexibility.
  • Replaceable Cheek pads/Ear cups: Cheek pads/ear cups may be easily removed. All parts (replaceable or not) can be cleaned with lukewarm water and mild soap. Rinse well after cleaning and never dry in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Interior parts in different size thickness are available for a custom fit for every rider.
  • Leatherette interior accents. A unique feature is the leatherette interior accent trim, offering a classic appearance. Made of very supple and soft faux leather offering a luxurious look and feel to the helmet.
  • Washable interior. The premium quality interior of any Arai helmet can be easily cleaned, in place, with mild soap and lukewarm water.
  • Penetration tested. All Arai helmets are penetration tested, although not required by European helmet standards. The Arai penetration test is performed with a 3kg test cone that strikes from a height of 3m on the helmet.
  • Double-D ring device. The flat and D-shaped rings fit smooth against the chin. No moving parts, no corrosion problems and just pulling the tab is enough to loosen the fastener.
  • 5-year limited warranty. All Arai helmets are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship, and are serviceable only for the properly fitted first user for 5 years from date of first use, but no more than 7 years from date of manufacture.
  • Different outer shells. Unlike many other manufacturers Arai provides one size outer shell for each two-helmet sizes for most models. Together with different shaped outer shells for different models it is almost impossible not to find the fit you are looking for.

Start with measuring your head to get an idea of the size to look for: measure (in cm) the circumference across the forehead, above the eyes and ears and over the small bump at the back of the head, read the size where the tape joins.

Sizing Chart (cm)

XS - 53-54
S - 55-56
M - 57-58
L - 59-60
XL - 61-62
XXL - 63-64

Fit the measured size. Focus on your head size (crown fit) measurement first, e.g. the area contacted by a baseball caps' band. Do not be concerned with facial fit at this stage. When you can't get the helmet past your cheeks or jaws, do not think it's too small and reach for a bigger size. The helmet must fit your head!

How? Remove the cheek pads and try on helmet sizes until you get that snug crown fit. For the most comfort the interior must fit snugly all around the crown of your head. You should feel some pressure at all the contact points around the interior perimeter, too much pressure could become uncomfortable in the future.

Finally, Arai's optional cheek pad thicknesses, and on some models the replaceable interiors, can fine-tune your personal fit. All Arai cheek pads can be replaced with a size that better suits your facial structure. But this fit should be addressed only when the crown size is correct.

Besides the replaceable cheek pads, selected models feature the "Peel-away Cheek Pad Layer" and "Peel-away Temple Pad Layer". The pads of these models can be made thinner easily by removing a 5 mm thick peel-away layer for added room if needed.

In special cases, Arai helmets can be made to measure.

We offer up to 6 different sizes outer shells. Unlike many other manufacturers Arai provides one size outer shell for each two helmet sizes for most models, adding up to four outer shell sizes within limited models. Starting with XXXS (49-50) for really small heads up to XXXL (65-66) for really large heads. Most other manufacturers may struggle to reach three different sizes for their complete size range.

The advantage of using different shell sizes (instead of just one or two outer shells and the use of additional more or less foam padding to stretch the size range) is that of all helmets the inner shell and comfort material can always maintain the correct thickness for every size. This guarantees that all Arai helmets provide the same high graded protection. Also it is not by the likes of Arai to see a very small person with a rather big, ‘oversized' looking helmet. Besides this cosmetic disadvantage, it is also possible that wearing an extremely large helmet may cause possible added injury.

Besides the different shell sizes, another characteristic of Arai is the use of different shell shapes for different models. There is for instance the G-shell for a more rounded human head and the L-shell for longer narrower faces. Arai has even developed different shaped inner and different sizes outer shells for different continents! One for Europe, one for Asia and one for North and South America since there are significant differences in head shapes among these regions.
