Coming Soon – Long Term Reviews & Tests

As bikers we all have our favourite kit and brands. We use them over a long period of time and develop opinions on them. Generally speaking it is the kit that we use for a long time and that works well then become the brands that we favour. 

I will soon start posting long term reviews of kit that I have and have been using for some time. I will be pointing out the good and the bad, the price and the mileage the gear has covered and all importantly when it is done, will I replace it?

New Year – New Gear (Part II) : Helmet – Arai X4 Detour

The official line from Arai pretty much says it all…

Adventure, grand touring or off road, no matter the riding conditions, the Tour-X4 motorcycle helmet is ready for anything. The Tour-X4 has a complete new outer shell. Redesigned to be tougher, stronger and stiffer than ever. As the Tour-X4 may be used under extreme conditions, the ventilation system has been redeveloped for maximum efficiency. The new Facial Contour System (FCS) offers more support and comfort to the lower jaw and creates a tighter fit. For an even better personal fit, there is a removable 5 mm surface foam layer on the cheek pads and temple pad from the headliner. Wear the Tour-X4 with or without peak, with or without visor and combinations of these two. The large visor opening offers plenty of room for motocross-style goggles when riding without visor.

The spec listing is as follows :
