To build one Arai helmet will take about 18 man-hours. Each and every Arai helmet is made by hand. We say “almost 100% handmade“. The “almost” restriction is for an automatic laser beam cutting out e.g. the visor aperture. But from the bare outer shell to the finished helmet, including the advanced design applications, the hands of skilled craftsmen perform everything.
