Typically excellent Arai quality. No distortion at all. Great item to eliminate the need to carry and wear sunglasses which will hamper visibility.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai Defiant Helmet - Solid Colors Designed specifically for the aesthetics and needs of street fighter and naked bike rider in mind, the new Arai Defiant is equally aggressive and feature rich, as one would expect from a new Arai helmet. Based on the fit and comfort of the Quantum, the Arai Defiant was built for the upright riding position with its aggressive, integrated chin spoiler, which was designed specifically to guide wind around the neck and to improve the aerodynamic properties of the helmet. The Hyper Ridge Bumper circles the bottom of the shell both adding additional strength and also lowering the helmet's center of gravity, while flaring the helmet opening slightly to increase the ease of putting on, and taking off. The Arai Defiant utilizes Arai's latest faceshield design, the SAI Max Vision Pinlock Shield with Brow Vents and includes Pinlock insert lens. The SAI Max Vision shield has been widened by 5mm left and right and offers one of the widest eyeports available for excellent peripheral vision. Features Aggressive new styling Internals are redesigned with a focus on safety and comfort Organic shell shape for superb energy management New IC-4 Upper Intake vents seal more completely when closed New ACR-4 flow thru exhaust vent allows greater air flow when open and reduces drag when closed FCS R (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design has 5mm peel away micro fit layer for greater personal fit Cheek pads feature contoured shape, multiple density foam layer supported by a patented spring New shell shape is easier to put on and take off New water repellent material along bottom edge Pull down spoiler works with new flared bottom to increase helmet stability SAI Max Vision Brow Vent Pinlock anti-fog lens insert included DOT and Snell 2010 certified

I'm replacing a Shoei RF-1000 with this new Arai since my Shoei is getting old. Right away I could tell the Defiant is a lighter helmet. And at speed on the highway is when you can really appreciate the engineering behind this thing. Checking lanes at 80 mph there is much less turbulence. I ride a Monster (a 2007 695) with a bikini fairing and my old helmet would really catch the wind. It was a struggle just hold my head down. The Arai is more stable and a lot more ventilated. Plus it just looks so cool. I like that all the padding is washable. By mid-July I'm sure I'll need to take advantage of that feature.
If your helmet is getting old spend the bucks- $100 per year breaks down to just $3.65 a day for a really good helmet- that's not too much, is it?
Yes, I recommend this product.
