Arai helmets available online?

Anybody know why Arai is now allowing online retailers to sell their helmets?

They want a trained professional in a store to ensure a proper fit. Dumb if ya ask me. I still bought mine off Ebay for over half what they want in stores. When I went to register it they would not honor it because it was bought online.

- 90 Mustang Coupe - 578 hp Grocery Getter
- 06 ZX-10 no mods - I love it
- 10 F250 Crew Cab
- 08 F-450 Crew Cab

I HAD A HANDLE ON LIFE, BUT IT BROKE OFF

they are big on proper fit. like zx10x2 said, they wont honor a warranty issue if it was not purchased from an authorized arai dealer. even some dealers that have them are not considered authorized, so ask before you buy. with the deals you can get off ebay though, you could almost buy 2 for the price you'd pay in the store. so if it goes to shit for whatever reason, just buy another!!

These online retailers claim they are authorized dealers. These are the same retailers that weren't selling online about two weeks ago (when I was in the market for a new lid). I see Arai's listed on ebay all the time. Just curious why Arai may have changed their policy.
