I swear Arai had in their website before this helmet came out that they did not believe in Carbon Fiber to be used in helmets because it wasn't safe. Now they are making a carbon fiber helmet. I dont get it.

That's cool, but I found some DOT and Snell stickers on eBay. I'll slap those on so I can still use the helmet at the track.

Too late. You ruined your chance. I will just buy a carbon KBC and put an Arai sticker on it.

Arai apparently figured out that people might pay $4000 for a helmet just because it IS carbon fiber.
