Rapide Speedblock

£529.99

Quick Overview

The Speedblock is designed by 360 Concepts, a well known designer in the custom scene. The design features speedblocks along the side of the helmet and a racing stripes-esque band from front to back transitioning into the base color. The Speedblock is a sophisticated design that will match a variety of motorcycles and appeal to anyone looking for a cool design. Available in a matte finish.

The 1980s. Naked motorcycles. An attitude that made you feel different from everybody else. Introducing the RAPIDE. Recalling the simple yet aggressive style of that era, this helmet came from the heart of Arai R&D. They loved the looks, but that was about it. Now, the Arai techs want old-school cool, to fit their style and motorcycle, but they want cool with modern Arai performance.

Rapide’s brute simplicity is the product of imagination, but make no mistake, while the retro style may grab attention it had to pass Arai’s stringent in-house testing. So underneath the aggressive look you’ll find a strong, lightweight PB e-cLc shell, with a smooth and round shape, reinforced with Arai’s proprietary peripheral belt, to slide across surfaces and glance-off obstacles. The VAS-VC shield system, with its retro mechanical look, further enhances glancing off performance by lowering the visor pivot point to maximize a smooth upper shell.

Although a nod to the past, the RAPIDE is very much a helmet of the present. Ready for a generation of modern riders that demand a new, old style - but with the performance and comfort only an Arai can provide.
