ARAI SZ RAM 4 upper ventilation system borrows directly from ARAI full face RX-7 RR5 helmet series which is the world's first diffuser-mounted motorcycle helmet. ARAI SZ RAM 4 has improved airflow and further enhanced helmet stability. Fixed Air-Wing on the ARAI SZ RAM 4 reduces lifting while providing additional stability at highway speed. DF-11 Diffusers have larger air vents on/off toggle switches for easier operation.

To harness the effective use of negative pressure to expel hot stale air when riding, ARAI SZ RAM 4 helmet adopt innovative ventilation system to transfer heat from inside of the helmet to outside. There are six holes on top of the helmet. The two frontal air vents for air intake and the remaining four holes force the hot stale air out to the back of the helmet. There is a switch control at the central mounted air diffuser when you can stop the introduction of air.
The function of the central mounted diffuser is to suck the hot stale air out rather than the conventional method of trying to force fresh air into the helmet. In addition this TYPE-10 ventilation system allow air to flow smoothly on the intake side. The newly designed TYPE-10 ventilation system also enhanced the quietness of the front air intake.
ARAI has incoporated the central mounted diffuser technology from ARAI RX-7 RR5 to an half face motorcycle helmet ARAI SZ RAM 4. The transparent clear diffuser is a cool contrast to the Australia flag colors of ARAI SZ RAM 4 Michael "Mick" Doohan Helmet.
Changes to the quick release visor have increased peripheral vision while the switches on the ARAI RAM 4 Mike MICK Doohan helmet airvents are now bigger, making them easier to operate wearing gloves.

ARAI SZ RAM 4 helmet shape is carefully designed by ARAI to further enhanced and streamlined the flow of air through the side pods. Thinner visor shield side pods provide a more aerodynamic shape on ARAI SZ RAM 4.
It is very common to have heat buildup inside the ear area around the helmet. ARAI SZ RAM 4 helmet utilize the fully adjustable Type-10 diffuser system where hot air can be expelled out through the side vents.
Vented neck roll on both models takes advantage of existing airflow from around the rider’s neck to further enhance helmet ventilation by extracting more heat build up from the interior. You can see the actual side vent picture below.
ARAI helmets have first class unique features like the face shield brow venting system and external rotating mechanism for the face shield. If you look closely at the ARAI SZ RAM 4 visor face shield, there are two air vent scoops right on the visor face shield. The purpose of the Visor Brow Ventilation System is to provide fresh cooling air into the rider's upper face area.
Now ARAI SZ RAM 4 helmet Visor Brow airvent provides fresh cooling air further to the side cheek pads.
The two Visor Brow airvent scoops can be open by pulling down the shutter fin to let cool air (blue arrow) flowing from the outside onto the rider's forehead. Cool freah air flow in from the visor air scoops are channelled directly through air vent ducts and onto your forehead area. The Brow Vent Faceshied Ventilation System technology disregard the need for holes in the critical forehead area or in the impact-absorbing liner material.
AS you can see from the picture above, the improved ARAI RAM 4 accomodate not only cool air flowing to your forehead but also through the side cheek pads. ARAI innovative technology are well thought out for the rider's needs.
ARAI RAM 4 helmet shell-construction material (Complex Laminate Construction) utilizes Arai's proprietary Multi-Density single piece EPS liner which absorbs exceptional impact energy while keeping the overall size and weight of the helmet to a minimum. Fiberglass composite besides being lightweight, also allow the use of softer, less-dense liner materials for increased rider comfort.
The absence of exaggerated edges or protrusions in the shell is to maintain the integrity of the shell with real world impact performance.
Three-stage foam liner
ARAI RAM 4 helmet incoporates three-stage foam liner to absorb the impact delivered to the frontal area. By varying the hardness of the liner which require sophisticated technology, a buffer effect can be obtained to absorb and withstand the shock in the event of an impact. Other brand of motorcycle helmets take the easy way out by producing uniform hardness of the liner throughout the helmet.
Arai also continues to use fiberglass for their motorcycle helmet shell because this material can be designed to spread the load forces more evenly. You can enjoy a peace of mind knowing that ARAI RAM 4 helmet has passed through stringent Singapore Safety Standards SS 9: 1992 batch testing and attained the "PSB TEST" safety label. ARAI RAM 4 helmet also meet or exceed Snell and DOT standards.
ARAI RAM 4 is designed such that the slightest wind or wind noise are further reduced in the gap between face shield and helmet shell. Therefore the edge of ARAI RAM 4 helmet shell is designed to stop the infiltration of wind for reduced wind noise.
The structural net composite (SNC) shell with peripheral belting and enhanced hyper ridge strengthening in the lower section represents Arai’s most advance design to date. Other advantages from the new construction include a larger opening to make the helmet more comfortable when putting it on and off and with the centre of gravity moved lower, the helmet sits more naturally to help reduce fatigue.
ARAI RAM 4 helmet has the most unique EPS liner which helps to assist energy absorption upon impact. The hybrid EPS liner has EPS cells that form a mutual bond to absorbed the force when the helmet is crushed under impact.
ARAI RAM 4 helmet offers the latest version of Arai's INNOVATIVE DRY-COOL® LINING. The Dry-Cool® removable liner has micro cells that absorb moisture such as sweat and dissipate heat away from your head. This keep your head cool and dry without having the sticky feeling especially if you are in humid tropical countries such as Singapore and Malaysia. The Dry-Cool® lining also dry up faster between hot rides.
The liner has been wrapped in mesh material which is soft to touch. The inner cheek pads, inner lining and chin strap are removable and washable. This allow you to have hygiene maintenance with periodic washing.
