This is classic Kevin Schwantz from Arai.
Arai have had a long term relationship with former 500cc World Champion, and all round motorcycle racing legend, Kevin Schwantz. One of the benefits of this tight relationship is regular Kevin Schwantz helmet replicas keep getting released in the Arai helmet range.
This one is arguably Kevin Schwantz’s most recognisable helmet design – he wore these helmet graphics during the early 1990s, and Arai have made it available in their Chaser V range (also known as the Vector 2 in the USA).
The design is a colourful graphic that features bright stars along the sides and the front of the helmet, with a chequered flag design that runs along the side contours of the helmet. The rear of the helmet features Schwantz’s yellow star with his race number ’34’ in the center of it.
A classic design that will resonate with long-term motorcycle race fans.
The completely new Chaser V has been redesigned from the ground up in almost every detail. A matter of evolution instead of revolution, to continue the success of the popular and loved Chaser model. New on the Chaser V is the wider aperture SAI visor offering a better view on the road, improving both performance and convenience. Comfort is significantly updated by the modified ventilation system. The interior has been improved to better follow the lines of the head, preventing pressure points and offering the necessary tight, yet comfortable fit.
