Like the Signet-Q Pro-Tour, the Defiant Pro-Cruise takes Arai's popular Defiant model and adds a host of beneficial features, including the innovative Pro Shade visor system, an all-new Eco-Pure antimicrobial liner that stays fresher between cleanings and additional room in the ear pocket for communication system speakers.
The Defiant Pro-Cruise has Arai's Intermediate Oval (IO) interior fit shape.
Pro Shade System:
The Defiant Pro-Cruise comes pre-equipped with Arai's Pro Shade System, providing shade and reducing glare in addition to acting as a peak. A clear Pinlock insert for the Max Vision Brow Vent Pro Shade comes standard in the box and only requires a minute to install.
Water-Repellent Eco-Pure Liner:
The Defiant Pro-Cruise also includes an exclusive water-repellent liner made with "Eco-Pure" antimicrobial material, so it stays fresher between cleanings.
The ear pockets of the new Defiant Pro-Cruise have molded pockets to better accept speakers for a more comfortable fit.
New IR Front-Spoiler Edge Trim:
Creates a stabilizing downforce, reducing buffeting, lifting and wind noise that can be generated by the turbulence trapped between your shoulders and the bottom of the helmet.
New IR Neck Roll Pad:
Has an improved shape to flow more air to the bottom of the helmet at lower speeds for enhanced rider comfort.
New IR Chin Vent:
Offers much more than an aggressive new look. Its two-position operation provides multiple functions with tangible rider benefits.
FCS Cheek Pads:
The contoured shape - combined with multiple layers of varying foam densities supported by a patented foam "spring" - cradles the face like nothing that has ever come before, even from Arai. The spring makes on-off easier, while helping to block even more wind noise.
5 mm Peel-Away Cheek and Side-Temple Pads:
Arai's exclusive 5 mm peel-away surface pads on both sides of the headliner and in the FCS Cheek Pads give you the option of 5 mm more interior width if needed (minimizing the need to purchase optional thickness pads). Yet another level of fit customization no other helmet brand offers.
Meets or exceeds SNELL and DOT standards.

1. Measure your head size. To do this, pass a tape measure horizontally around your head at a height of about one inch above your eye brows. When done properly, you will have measured the largest part of your head.
2. Check your measurement with the helmet sizing chart and select the closest size. As the helmet may not always meet your head size exactly, and your head measurement may fall between two sizes, first try the smaller size.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR HELMET
1. Expand the helmet opening by pulling outwards on each chinstrap, and slide your head into the helmet. If you are unfamiliar with helmets you may be reluctant to pull the helmet down, as it may feel too tight. Even if the helmet is difficult to put on, please use the smallest helmet possible. The helmet should feel snug. If the helmet is not tight, it is too big for you. New helmets will break in and loosen slightly over time.
2. Once the helmet is on:
Check that the helmet inner lining fits snugly all around your head.
Check that the top pad presses on the top of your head.
Check that the cheek pads press up against your cheeks. When you open and close your mouth, you should drag your teeth along the inside of your cheeks.
Check to make sure that you cannot easily slide your finger into the helmet along the side of your temple.
Hold the helmet with one hand on each side. Without moving your head, try to move the helmet up and down, and side to side. You should feel the skin of your head and face being pulled as you try to move the helmet. If you can move the helmet around easily, it is too big. Try a smaller size. Please note that during this check, the chinstraps should be properly fastened.
