Arai Pro Shade System for SAI-Compatible Helmets

Nowadays it is quite common to use a retractable sun-visor that is situated between the helmet’s outer- and inner shell to protect against sun glare. However, it is Arai’s opinion that this construction could affect the performance of a helmet during impact. As the Pro Shade System is completely mounted on the outside of the helmet, it will not in any way negatively affect the performance of the helmet.

The Pro Shade System is a small peak that is locked in position. Unlocking is easy; just pull the Pro Shade System forward, then it can be flipped down with a flick of the hand to act as an effective sun-visor. The Pro Shade System is the complete all-weather system for serious touring riders, offering protection against sun glare, fogging and misting, especially for riders that prefer an upright seating position and/or the comfort of a fairing, the Pro Shade System will enhance the rider’s comfort significantly.

Features:

  • Fits all Arai SAI full-face helmets
  • Complete system, pre-mounted on clear Arai MAX Vision visor (included)
  • Compatible with Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Inserts With Brow Vents (sold separately)
  • Enhanced aerodynamics
  • Increased helmet stability
  • Removable for easy cleaning
  • No contact with visor: no scratching

No, really -- you want this!
This device flat works. Push it in to lock it in the up position, and it acts like a sun peak, with very little lift or noise discernible from inside the helmet. Pull it forward and down, and you have pretty good glare protection, all without having to worry about putting on or taking off sunglasses, or having them fog up during sudden rainstorms, or riding blind into tunnels or underpasses. Yes, it could be a little longer (and I understand there's a long version now), and the push/pull takes some practice, but the flexibility it affords is well worth the price. It's also outside the helmet, so if heaven forbid you actually have to use the helmet for its assigned role, at least you won't have to worry about an internal sun visor guillotining your nose (go ahead, ask how I know that). Safety, convenience, and rakish good looks, all in one package. You really want one of these.

Incredibly disappointed. Horrific noise. Poor fit. Total waste of my money. My last Arai purchase of any kind.

It says it fits all Arai helmets but doesn't list the Signet X. Would it be presumptuous of me to assume my helmet is included?
Michael M on Nov 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Signet X uses the new VAS shield. Fortunately, they've just come out with a version of this for the VAS visors. I have one, and they're even better than this model. Buy with confidence, you won't be disappointed.
I have a signet Q helmet with pin lock. Can I use this with my pin lock on my helmet?
allen b on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The shade comes pre-installed on a new visor, but you can remove the existing pin lock insert and place it into the new visor. Be sure to wash your hands first. : )
