Handmade to perfection
Founder Hirotake Arai came from a family of hat makers, but his passion had always been in motorcycles. He was an avid motorcyclist who saw the need for helmets that fulfilled their purpose: protect the life of the rider. But there were no helmet makers, importers or helmet safety standards in Japan during that time, so he set out to be the first Japanese helmet manufacturer and pioneered the motorcycle helmet industry in his country.
Hirotake Arai didn’t start a helmet manufacturing business for his personal profit; he founded Arai because he wanted to give Japanese motorcyclists, including himself and his friends, the protection they deserve. Half a century after the company’s founding, his eldest son Michio decided he wouldn’t just continue running his father’s business and make it better, but make Arai “the number one helmet in the world.”
Like his father, Michio Arai is a motorcycle enthusiast who believes the life of every rider is priceless. This belief is also shared by every skilled craftsman and craftswoman who makes Arai helmets by hand to this day, and permeates their painstaking helmet manufacturing process.
The company’s mission of protecting the lives of motorcycle riders has remained its motivation in almost a century of its existence. Today, Arai enjoys an enviable reputation as the maker of the safest motorcycle helmets in the world who relentlessly pursues perfection in making every helmet that bears its founder’s name.
