Heritage styling with modern luxuries. Traditional stitched faux leather edge trim. Faux leather interior accents. Behind the vintage look are modern technologies. Patented hidden interior ventilation. Arai's uncompromising level of quality and protection. The Classic-V: Look cool. Stay cool.
The Classic-V has Arai's INTERMEDIATE OVAL (IO) interior fit shape.
Patented Hidden Ventilation: Fresh air enters the three forehead channels flowing over the head, pulling away heat. Hot air then escapes through the hidden multistage channel and out the patented Venturi exhaust.
Interior Integrated Intake Vents: Borrowing from their racing heritage, Arai incorporated three intake channels in the forehead area, allowing fresh air to enter the helmet and flow more easily to the crown.
Hidden Air Channel: Air flowing from the intake channels into the crown escapes through three holes in the EPS liner, pulling heat with it, into the hidden multi-staged air channel.
Rear Venturi Ports: Once air enters the hidden multi-stage air channel in the EPS liner, it is then pulled out by the low pressure created by the patented Venturi exhaust manifold.
Strong-Round-Smooth Old School Shell Outside: When it comes to head protection, just as much effort goes into the new Classic-V shell as Arai puts into every other helmet shell they make. Proprietary PBcLc (Peripherally Belted, complex Laminate construction) shell.
High-Tech, One-Piece, Multi-Density Liner Inside: A fundamental Arai feature has always been the One-Piece, Multi-Density Liner. Molding all of the EPS densities into a one-piece EPS liner allows the various densities to work together during an impact. This allows Arai to make a thinner and softer EPS liner for a smaller overall helmet.
Interior Comfort - Enjoy the Ride More: Featuring Arai's anti-microbial material, using a low acidic fabric to help maintain a balanced pH level with the skin. It is also odor resistant, helping the helmet stay fresher, longer in between cleanings.
Faux Leather Stitched Trim: Enhancing the "old school" look of the new Classic-V is the wide, stitched faux leather trim set in a recess channel in the shell for a clean finished look.
Button Closure Goggle Strap Holder: Completing the "old school" look is the faux stitched leather goggle strap holder, that helps keep your goggle straps from sliding up the helmet while riding.

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.
