Arai Peripheral Belting Structural Net Composite Outer Shell


Arai patented PB-SNC, Peripheral Belting Structural Net Composite, is an additional strengthening belt that is embedded between the fibre layers, in the manufacturing process, to improve the shell rigidity and stiffness. SNC, Structural Net Composite, is a layer of netted fibres which bond the layers of fibreglass improving the rigidity, strength and to help distribute any impact forces throughout the outer shell.


PB-SNC Construction was originally developed for the special Formula 1 helmets and is now standard in all Arai Motorcycle Racing Helmets, such as the Arai RX7 GP, fitting just above the visor opening reducing overall helmet weight, lowering the centre of gravity resulting in better balance and reduced fatigue for more comfort.
