Arai launch Tour X3 McGregor and Boorman replicas

State of the art multi-purpose helmet now available in 'Long Way Down' colours

THE NEW Arai Tour X3 and replicas of the Tour X3, as used by Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor in the BBC TV series Long Way Down, are now in UK Arai dealerships.

The new Tour X3 has a re-designed peak with reinforced ridges and a new enlarged visor/peak holder pressure plate. Both of these new innovations give the helmet better stability at speed. The peak is detachable for more road based riding, leaving the visor only. Conversely, the visor can be removed if you prefer a more `off-road' type of look and wish to wear goggles. The Dry Cool(R) interior is fully washable and removable and uses the new Emergency release tab cheekpads which ensure the helmet can be removed quickly and easily should the need arise.

Arai Tour X 3 riders can keep cool with the new, fully adjustable vent system, featuring Delta Ducts set on the top of the outer shell and lever-activated diffuser vents.

There's a variable airflow vent in the chinbar section, which can be set to direct air up the inside of the visor, to help de-mist in damp or humid weather, or set for a side exit flow to draw the rider's breath away. Keeping your face and head cool, plus your visor clear, when adventure riding means you're more alert, relaxed and therefore a safer rider. A Pinlock(R) insert also now comes with every Tour X3 to ensure clear vision at all times.

The Arai Tour X3 helmet is available in sizes XS-XL and a range of colour schemes, from Diamond White/Black, Aluminium Grey (RRP £299.99), Motard Silver, Motard Black (RRP £349.99) to Long Way Down replicas in blue or red (RRP £359.99).
