Yeah, have to agree the postage was cheaper last time (think it was around £3). I got a full black one, a checkered black and white one and a light blue with circle (target boards) pattern. No weird smells though

Original Poster

Some info on the Chaser V range Jeff :-

The Arai Chaser-V Motorcycle Helmet is an evolution of one of Arai Helmets most popular and universally praised helmets, the Chaser. Updated in almost every way, the Arai Chaser-V is constructed with a SFL (Super Fibre Laminate) shell and features a wider aperture and SAI visor giving improved vision, interior comfort is increased by the modified ventilation system; the large rear vent now creates a 50% higher vacuum, and in combination with the larger side vents greatly improve air circulation, a host of detail changes - including deleting some interior parts and repositioning attachment buttons - greatly add to the Arai Chaser-V's comfort and useability. Even the shape of the interior itself has been fine-tuned to prevent pressure points while offering the necessary snug fit.

I've seen previous Chaser models for under £200, but not sure how much better this series V is.
Best to try on in a shop first.... not everyone has an Arai shaped head.

Thabiz, we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one man, no worries thats what healthy debate is all about
Cheep lids should not be encouraged also with respect a shark is not an Aria or Shoei,
You will see the top riders on tv wearing all manner of brands but trust me the lid they have on their bonce is a completely different thing to the one me and you can go and buy from our local dealer, Only Arai use exactly the same materials and construction methods on their road lids as they do on their sponsored racers. All helmets look the same or very similar when cut open, the real difference is down to the type of foams and polystyrene used to achieve good 'crush/collapse rates' and acceptable 'skull deceleration' upon impact, small differences have a huge effect on brain trauma and recovery rate/chance.
Unfortunately the new tests don't cover this as thoroughly as they should or could and thats how loads of new names have sprung up over the last few years.
What i will agree with though is a badly fitting lid should be avoided whatever the brand.
Anyhow all of this is academic if we all repeat the daily mantra...
Today i will have a safe enjoyable ride and above all i am NOT going to crash!

Oh one final tip to all the little scooter assassins, if you do find your self in a heap out side the local chippy or bus stop and the lass you've been trying to impress sees you on the deck (we've all been there) just casually look up and declare with a rye smile .......

Some people cant afford many £££'s to spend on a lid alone, I never suggested ride round in inadequate clothing. I dont doubt that they are lovely helmets, and obviously I know real bikers wear them too. They are not magic "I wont die" cards though, ive seen both a cheapo and a shark cut open and no difference. Buy the best you can afford is good advice but for far less than the price of an arai or shoei someone could be kitted out with good textile jacket, trousers, gloves, boots, helmet and even afew extras such as thermals, kidney belt, neck tube, tank bag etc.

Cheaper options should be encouraged not sneered at. Thats partly the reason you see so many youngsters not in proper gear or wearing their dads hand me down old cool brand helmet even if its been dropped and doesnt fit.

Great helmet for little assassins with scooters.

Every cheap helmet ever in the history of man has had the same opinions. … Every cheap helmet ever in the history of man has had the same opinions. I had 3 Nitro helmets and they were good, acu gold stamp and fairly comfortable, fogged badly though (though never tried a better brand helmet) and were £30, £40, £50. Finding what fits best is important.I came off at about 25ish and my head was fine. There all just abit of polystyrene, foam and plastic anyway. Ok top notch ones are carbon etc but not many can afford them. If I was still riding id get maybe a caberg for £100 or so, but nothing more. Arai and Shoei are for summer weekend powerangers with dainese leathers and go pro hd cameras on the bars of their R1 to go and meet at the cat and fiddle and show off with all their fancy gear. And enough of that sort have died over the years. The rider not being an idiot plays a bigger part than the badge or price tag of your helmet.

I don't think world champions would wear such helmets whilst on the track if they were not the best so I think the Sharp test is just a guide .... not definitive. It all depends on the tests done.




I agree, lots of high end helmets have scored very badly on the sharp website, shoei, Arai etc. Schuberth which is considered a premium helmet very quiet, some costing £450 getting a 2/5 rating. Logically how could that be. I have looked into the snell testing but it gives no details just a pass. All my research was done long before this thread ever existed. I crashed head first over the handle bars (van pulled out in front of me) once with a hjc and apart from scratches, when i took the helmet apart no damage to the inside layers. When i replaced my gf i dropped her old one on concrete many times to see what would happen to the insides (people say comment " if you drop your helmet its useless the inside crumples blah blah) i have never seen any of these signs. To be honest it looks like a old fashion bicycle helmet with a hard case over the top. I tried a hjc zf10 it got a 4/5 rating and it feels like a toy helmet, the quality is terrible i do not know how it could receive the high scores it did. A track crash will be different to a road crash. How many race track riders come off at 150mph then get up and walk away. On the road you have cars from all angles, buildings, pavements, street lights, railings, a endless list. So many different factors to consider and if you look at some of the tests they are hard objects coming from all angles. Your head is one area you need to protect, hundreds of pounds is nothing in the long run.

Good site for helmet reviews

Their conclusion is that the inexpensive, polycarbonate shell Z1R transferred an average of 152Gs to the head-form, vs. 211Gs of the Snell-approved Scorpion EXO-700. Also, the UK's RIDE magazine tested 28 helmets in the May 2005 issue. While the testing methodology was slightly different, they also found that the HJC AC-11 provided the second best impact absorption of the lot.
Could it be that a motorcycle helmet doesn't necessarily have to be expensive to provide good protection?

Hmmmmm.......Now, I'm not sure if either these racers/riders either haven't seen the SHARP test ratings or if some other force is at work, but as they seem to be good enough for them I am going to presume/assume that they are good enough for us!



I don't think anyone has said they're bad helmets (far from it) but the SHARPs test is one (of several) objective tests and surely worth taking into consideration.

When it comes to Schumacher, etc. I think it's reasonable to assume that the only common factor between his helmet and the ones on sale is the brand.

Regardless of all of the above, even the SHARPs people stress that FIT is the most important factor (presumably all the hyper-stars have theirs custom fitted). If this Schuberth is a good fit for you that probably outweighs any concern about the SHARP rating

For me, noise levels are very important too as I already have tinnitus but that's really difficult to determine until it's bought and used.

So, not trying to knock this deal, just pointing out a factor to be considered along with others. It would be interesting to know why it only gets 3 stars though.

Purely on a price vs RRP basis this is a hot deal.

Walking through town I popped in to Ethel Austin to find a gift for the OAP next door and spotted a similar single neck warmer, looked and felt rubbish and was £6 so this offering put a smile on my face more.

Typical, conflicting information, I think the T&Cs were posted up after the surge in orders but my order was made before the amendments to the site.

Great deal, especially if you were buying a lid anyway.
Slightly worrying though is this in the T&C's -
'This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time and without notice'

Not a bad deal, I need a few of those freebies anyway.

I know...i got the HJC-HQ1 for £125 from lidsdirect, full carbon fibre 5* rated lid
Very happy with it, but this is a cool lid and cheap for an Arai, my last Arai was £399!

Nice lid that!
Just got a suomy at the bmf show, fits my small head better than the arai.
