Just been up in the loft and just found my old Arai Quantum. I wore it once but didn't like it so put it back in it's bag and box and left it up there. That was 21 years ago. Now I'm wondering if it is safe to use? As I said, only worn it once for a quick ride and that was it 20 odd years ago.

The biggest issue will probably be that the graphics have gone out of fashion and haven't yet become retro,

ARAI say 7 years from manufacture 5 years of use hence the reason you should check the date when purchasing a new helmet I have always bought my ARAI helmets in the Sales but they usually are already 2 years old boxed, I have 3 ARAI Rx7 in the cupboard out of date that the wife is threatening to put bedding plants in53

Apart from mice etc pissing int it might be OK to wear just don't test it. If you have enough money to leave it unused for all that time i think you really know the answer':smirk:
