Arai Corsair X Helmet

The Corsair-X Helmet represents the culmination of Arai's vast experience in helmet design and unwavering focus on rider protection. And with features like the ingenious VAS shield mechanism, dramatically improved air flow and ventilation and an antimicrobial Eco-Pure liner, the Corsair-X has certainly earned its place as Arai's flagship model. The Corsair X Type 12 air diffusers are longer than the Corsair V and are straightened for improved aerodynamics, working together with the AirWing to improve stability, and creating a 19% gain in efficiency. The Arai Corsair X Helmet features a chin curtain that helps to block air intrusion from the air underneath the helmet, as well as increases negative pressure to enhance the exhaust ventilation performance. The interior lining includes Arai's signature 5mm peel away ear pocket padding and ear pocket recess to accommodate communicator speakers. 

Normally the shield mounting position must remain relatively high, because a lower shield pivot will not allow the shield to open or close. The VAS (Variable Axis System) has a variable axis (moving pivot point). This allows shield opening and closing even with the 24mm lower shield mount position, compared to the Corsair V. The Corsair X helmet shell is constructed from Super Fiber and other special synthetic fibers developed for F-1 helmet visor panels, assembled and bonded by Arai experts. A specially-developed resin creates stronger bonds between shell materials with less weight.

Features:

  • VAS (Variable Axis System) shield and side pods are exclusive to the Arai Corsair X Helmet
  • Dual function lever releases both the side pod and the face shield for quick and simple face shield removal
  • VAS shield latch system captures and holds the face shield closed and provides a de-mist position to slightly crack the shield open
  • VAS MAX Vision face shield provides excellent visibility in all seasons thanks to the included Pinlock insert
  • Air intake vents are extremely adjustable and have three positions (closed, half open and fully open) to create a tight seal to decrease wind noise and water intrusion
  • Neckroll is removable and has additional exhaust channels to remove interior heat
  • Eco Pure liner with adjustable temple padding
  • Eco Pure cheek pads have the Emergency Release Tab feature
  • IC Duct5 forehead vent provides 11% more airflow than the Corsair V, features 3 positions and is overall large and easy to operate with gloves
  • PB SNC2 Shell has superb tensile strength due to a variety of carefully-positioned materials and light weight resin
  • Arai's R75 shell shape creates a rounder, smoother helmet to enhance energy and impact dispersion
  • Includes clear Pinlock insert lens
  • Snell 2015 and DOT approved

Good choice
What can I say? Very expensive helmet. But I suppose it's worth it. Made in Japan is so awesome. I started with an HJC CL series and stuck with that $149 helmet for a long time. The base level Vector was on my wish list for the longest time, but all the had in stock in store was the mid level and high level. Tried them both on several times. The top of the line definitely felt to be better, more comfortable, and more snug fit - and it wasn't just in my mind to spend the most money to get the best. I opted for the frost black since it was a safe bet. Price was about $750. It's a great helmet and I can really feel the upgrade and difference. Lots of air vents and lots of fresh, cool air coming in while riding. Very light on the head. Only drawback back is that I get worried and I take it along with me because? I don't want it to get stolen. Doesn't look to flashy, so that's a plus. Couldn't think of a better buy. Why not? I plan on hanging on to this one for long time.
