Arai Tour-X5 – Discovery Orange

The Arai Tour-X5, succeeding the long-standing Tour-X4, emerges as a renewed iteration aligning with the updated ECE 22:06 safety standard. As an adventure helmet designed for on-road use with off-road aesthetics, the Tour-X5 retains hallmark features such as the extended chin bar and peak.

Arai, known for crafting high-quality and protective helmets, seizes the opportunity presented by the new safety standard to enhance various aspects of the Tour-X5. The redesigned chin bar, with a more rounded shape, aims to improve ‘glancing off’ properties, a fundamental design principle for Arai. This modification also contributes to a flatter visor profile, enhancing optical quality. The larger visor aperture accommodates even the largest off-road goggles. Addressing concerns about peaks causing buffeting and wind noise during road riding, Arai refined the peak’s aerodynamics through wind tunnel testing, featuring a distinctive large cut-out on the rear edge.

Ventilation is a key aspect of adventure helmets, and the Tour-X5 incorporates effective ventilation features, including brow-mounted logo vent, a two-position vent on the top, adjustable chin vent, and strategically positioned exhaust ports. The helmet’s base has been widened for easier donning and doffing, with added recesses to accommodate speakers for communication systems. While the Tour-X5 inherits iconic status from its predecessor, it appears poised to surpass it in crucial aspects, reinforcing Arai’s commitment to producing top-tier adventure helmets in the market.

Outer Shell: PB-CLC2

Arai’s Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction greatly increases shell strength and flexibility while maintaining low weight and a lower centre of gravity. Positioned across the top of the eye port, this band contributes to the use of a thinner EPS liner which greatly enhances the upward field of view. A specially designed “mechanically expanded fibre mat”, sandwiched between the inner and outer layers of Arai’s proprietary Super Fibre Laminates, is used to reinforce and bond these two Super Fibre layers without adding significant weight to the helmet. The latest “Z-Mixture” resins increases material adhesion requiring less resin for a stronger bond between materials for a thinner and lighter shell.

Variable Axis System A (VAS-A)

This new visor system allows for easier and faster visor swaps. The visor can be attached or removed without the need for any tools. The peak utilizes only one screw on each side for easy removal & installation. With VAS, the visor mounting position is lowered, yielding an average of an additional 10mm of smoother shell across both temple areas, in pursuit of the ideal smoother shape that increases the ability to glance off impact energy. The visor is designed to follow the line of the eye-opening area on the shell while keeping a continuous curvature. A larger, clearer field-of-view is the result. The visor radius follows the shape of the helmet, providing a higher level of glancing off ability.

3 Configurations

Multi-purpose styles for your ride: adventure, on-road, and off-road. Changing to either of the styles does not require additional parts. A more open eye-port is optimized for wearing goggles.

Innovative Peak

The all-new peak is designed for more effective ventilation, increased high speed flow-through performance, greater range of adjustability for blocking the sun, and is more resistant to buffeting, all of which leads to a more comfortable riding experience.

Tour-X5 Ventilation

The Tour-X5 has a completely new ventilation system. With a total of three intake vents and five exhaust vents, the ventilation is further improved from the previous generation. Stay cool in any situation.

10 mm wider base

The exclusive shell flares 5mm on each side for a total of 10mm around the base, making it easier to get the helmet on and off.

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.
