Arai VX Pro3 Off Road MX HelmetArai has made a name for itself by being expensive. If money's no object and you want the best the world has to offer, buy an Arai. Lots of companies make very good helmets for protecting your skull and all its guts, but Arai is the top of the heap, so to speak.
The VX-Pro3 off-road helmet for 2009 replaces the VX-Pro, which was considered the industry standard by which other helmets should be measured. The Pro3 has at least one notable improvement over its predecessor, which is the 11mm increase in forward tilt of the chin-bar that gives more room for your face, and just plain feels more open. This is a good thing, as many helmets feel claustrophobic in that area especially when your goggles are on.

The Pro3 also has fully removable and washable interior padding so you can soak away the sweat and stench of a long day's ride, and the cheek pads have pull tabs that allow emergency personnel to more easily remove a helmet from an injured rider -- thankfully, this feature is becoming more prevalent throughout the industry.

Retained are the forehead vent-ports for better venting and for preventing "bucketing," or helmet-pull, at higher speeds. A stainless steel mesh in the chin-bar protects against roost and mud-packing, while the closeable vent gate gives you full control of airflow through the chin-bar.

These are light, strong, comfortable, well-designed helmets. You'll pay for it up front, but they'll last a long time, and you'll know your head is in good hands and as safe as technology can make it, at the moment.
