I'd like to know mfg date as well, as I'm pretty interested. The size is right for me and the price is solid, but that colorway is a few years old iirc.

As it sits, it's basically new old stock, so I'm not particularly concerned about the age. I'm doing all my xmas shopping for my family today, so depending on how my bank account is looking by the end of it all I might be in, I'll let you know.

According to this Arai link, if it has a Snell M2005, it could have been made anywhere from 2005 to 2010.

Arai Wants You to Know

On the following page, under the warranty paragraph, it says:

"The date is offered as a code with the production month followed by the year. For example 01/10 stands for production date January 2010."

But it does not say were these numbers are? maybe take a closer look at the number on the back of the helmet by the DOT symbol???
the Company | Arai Helmet (Europe) B.V. official website

Is there another label on the chin strap?
arai helmet manufacture date?? - Biker.ie Forums

Arai have amended the way in which they record the date of manufacture. The date is still on the chin strap but will be listed as, for example

G 07, The G stands for the year of manufacture so as G is the 7th letter of the alphabet the helmet was manufactured in 2007 and 07 stands for the month of July, the 7th month of the year. Therefore this helmet was manufactured in July 2007.

Another ones says the code is located on the chin strap D-ring.
Tilted Horizons: Arai Helmet Date of Manufacture

Hopefully it is on one of these spots.

I know there are people on this forum that would take exception, but your stance is reasonable.

I don't mind people knowing the facts. Especially if it's something as important as a brain protector and benefits the other members.

P. S. The helmet is sold.

Thanks all.

Niner.........asking questions that are relative to the item you have/had for sale is fine, but idle chit chat doesn't need to be in it. I deleted a few posts/comments that were not needed in the thread.......that's what this was all about.

Guys, I'm trying to be serious here. Let's do our talking/chit chat/funny stuff in the other threads and keep the for sale, wanted, trade section for what it is suppose to be without cluttering up the poster's items.
