First it was BMW, then Davidoff and now Arai has needlessly hitched itself to Ewan McGregor, his idiot mate Charley and their all-expenses-paid, round-the-world holiday. The Arai Tour X3 adventure touring helmet is now available as a Long Way Down replica.
The thing is, the Tour X3 is already one of the best helmets on the
market. It offers unique looks and functionality (the Shoei Hornet DS
now competes for the adventure market too) combined with features like
adjustable ventilation, a removable peak and visor (you can wear it
with goggles or without). This new X3 model adds emergency release tab
cheek pads, which will help paramedics safely remove your helmet
post-accident. Just ask Ewan and Charley, they traveled with their very
own EMT, following closely behind in a truck.
Thanks for the tip, Gary.
