Arai Motorcycle Helmet Snell Approved Many touring and cruiser riders prefer an open-face helmet over the full-face variety. The open-face design allows a less obstructed view of the road and motorcycle, and is much more convenient when off the motorcycle. The down-side is that an open-face helmet leaves the rider's face and jaw relatively unprotected in the event of a crash. If you weigh the pros and cons of the open-face design and come to the conclusion that this type of helmet is for you, the Arai SZ-Ram III could be a great choice.

I am a fan of Arai helmets. They are unsurpassed in attention to detail and overall quality. The SZ-Ram III is no exception. The helmet meets or exceeds the two most important safety ratings in the American market: DOT and Snell. In addition, it offers well-designed venting. There is adjustable helmet shell ventilation (with a fully adjustable Arai Type-5 diffuser system) as well as the Arai signature shield ventilation. The shell is constructed of a complex fiberglass composite and is hand-crafted like every Arai helmet. It has a ZR shield, holder, and base plates.

The last time I wore an open-faced helmet on a regular basis was back in the '70s. However, if I were to make that decision now, I would give this Arai SZ-Ram III serious consideration. Arai's comfort and safety ratings are second to none.

If the face shield is too large for your liking, check out the AFX FX-42 Pilot Open Face Helmet.
