ARAI Helmets win safety award. Nov 2019.
Arai has made history by winning the FIM’s (Fedreation Internaitonale de Motocyclisme’s) first-ever Nicolas Rodeil del Valle gold medal for safety. The award has been given before for “two-wheel racing activities and management of business,” but it has never been awarded for safety equipment to a gear manufacturer like Arai, according to Motorcycle.com.
In November this year, at the FIM annual awards ceremony in Monte Carlo, Monaco Arai was awarded the honour. Mr Michio Arai received the award at the company. Mr Michino Arai is the son of Hirotake Arai, the current company CEO and company founder. The award was officially given for “achievement in contributions to the safety of many riders and numerous advancements to motorcycle sports over many, many years.” In other words, Arai makes good and safe helmets.
We would have to agree with the FIM’s assessment. Arai does make some fantastic helmets. There are plenty of other helmet manufacturers out there that also make great helmets, but Arai is one of the most important ones and continues to innovate each year.
Congratulations to Arai Helmets and keep up the GREAT work.
