Arai Urban-V combines the design and style of a vintage helmet, with the avant-garde level of protection, comfort and ventilation that you expect from Arai.
Urban-V unites the old and the new;
No detail has been left to chance, such as the eco-leather finishes with visible stitching and the classic embroidered interiors, but it is also an Arai in all respects, in fact it meets Arai's strict internal Standards in addition to the mandatory ECE Homologation 22-05 being equipped with the most modern technical features in terms of protection and comfort, such as an integrated ventilation system and a more rigid and rounded outer shell. The outer shell of Urban-V is made of PB-cLc2 (the same technology used in F1) and inner shell in EPS with different densities in one piece (Arai world exclusive).
So to be cool, stay cool, comfortable and benefit from the protection that only Arai is able to offer, choose Urban-V.
Vintage style with F1 technology.
The outer shell of the Urban-V is made using Peripherally Belted Complex Laminate Construction2 (PB-cLc2) technology.
The shape of the shell ensures a timeless charm and reflects our philosophy that a more rounded, smooth and resistant shell improves the helmet's ability to slide over any obstacles, deflecting and distributing the impact forces.
The patented Peripheral Belt (made of Super Fiber), was inherited from our F1 helmets, helps improve the strength and rigidity of the shell while maintaining lightness and a low center of gravity, for greater comfort over long distances.
This solution also allowed us to use a thinner EPS shell that helps improve the upper visual field.
The addition of a layer of Organic Felt inserted between the various laminate sheets further contributes to the rigidity of the shell without negatively affecting the weight of the helmet.
INTERNAL SHELL / VENTILATION SYSTEM:
High-tech with multi-level ventilation channel.
The basis of our helmet construction philosophy is the use of an extremely rigid and resistant outer shell to distribute the energy on the widest possible surface, combined with an EPS inner shell that helps absorb energy of impact behaving similarly to the areas of shock absorption in cars.
The Urban-V is equipped with both, using an inner shell in EPS with differentiated densities in one piece and the outer shell PB-cLc2.
Thanks to the greater resistance of the outer shell, we have managed to integrate a ventilation channel system inside the EPS that ensures a constant flow of air inside the helmet.
The air enters through three channels positioned in the frontal area to flow over the head eliminating the heat.
Subsequently, thanks to the integrated channel, it is collected and directed to the Venturi effect extractor which, thanks to the low pressure zone generated behind the helmet, provides for extraction.
Removable and customizable antimicrobials.
For an even softer, smoother and more comfortable fit, we have developed an even more delicate coating material.
The interiors of Urban-V are made of antimicrobial material, which helps maintain a balanced pH on the skin and boasts deodorant properties, allowing the helmet to remain fresher longer.
In addition, for most Arai helmets, cheek pads of different thickness are available to offer a personalized fit to every motorcyclist.
The embroidered inner cap of Urban-V contributes to ventilation by guiding the flow of air from the three front channels inside the helmet to the rear extractor.
Removable cheek pads:
The cheek pads can be easily removed for any customization or washing. All the remaining parts can be washed with warm water and neutral soap. Be careful to rinse well and never dry in direct sunlight or near heat sources.
