Samurai (侍) were the military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan. In Japanese, they are usually referred to as "bushi" = "武士" (Chinese character)
By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost synonymous with bushi and closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. Samurai were retainers with a clan and their lord and were trained as officers in military tactics and strategic advisors.
Samurai were a warrior class that hold loyalty, to the point of preferring self-sacrifice over dishonor. Toyotomi Hideyoshi was Oda Nobunaga's retainer, and Tokugawa Ieyasu was Hideyoshi's retainer. They fought to preserve the clans of their lords, but eventually gained power themselves.
ARAI SZ RAM 4X Frontal Air Ventilation
To harness the effective use of negative pressure to expel hot stale air when riding, ARAI SZ RAM 4X 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. The central mounted air diffuser for ARAI RAM 4X is gigantic compared to older RAM 4 helmet and you can control/stop the introduction of airflow.
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-12 ventilation system allow air to flow smoothly on the intake side. The newly designed TYPE-12 ventilation system also enhanced the quietness of the front air intake.
ARAI SZ RAM 4 Back Air Venting System
Changes to the quick release visor have increased peripheral vision while the switches on the helmet airvents are now bigger, making them easier to operate wearing gloves. Between the trademark twin diffusers is now a five-position air wing, designed to reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting. You can see how the airflow is passing through the top of ARAI SZ RAM 4X helmet and expel through the dual rear exhaust.
ARAI SZ RAM 4X Side Air Venting System
ARAI SZ RAM 4X 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 4X.
It is very common to have heat buildup inside the ear area around the helmet. ARAI SZ RAM 4X 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 SZ RAM 4X Unique Visor Brow Venting System
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 4X 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 4X 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 4X 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 SZ RAM 4X Helmet Shell Construction

The absence of exaggerated edges or protrusions in the shell is to maintain the integrity of the shell with real world impact performance.
"PB SNC2" shell stands for : Peripheral Belting & Structural Net Composite2
Three-stage foam liner
ARAI RAM 4X 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.

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.
