CORSAIR-X FIT INTERMEDIATE OVAL (IO) – Balanced fit from front-to-rear and side-to-side engineered to fit most riders in North America. (IO is the basis from which other fit models are derived.)
LESS WEIGHT, MORE COMFORT IN A STRONGER SHELL Proprietary Super Fiber™ PB-SNC² shell technology along with special synthetic fibers combine with newly developed resins assembled by Arai experts combining superb strength and energy management with less weight.
COMPACT = IMPROVED AERODYNAMICS + RIDER COMFORT R75 Design Principles include the Hyper-Ridge at the lower edge of the shell to increase shell strength and a proprietary multi-density EPS liner “tuned” to protect specific areas of the head maximizing performance. These combine with shell shape engineering and material choices reducing overall shell size and weight maximizing rider comfort and the helmet’s aerodynamic performance.
EASY-CHANGE SHIELD VAS Shield System incorporates a variable axis pivot allowing the shield to open higher and close more smoothly. Dual Release Lever (cover/shield) removes the shield cover to see the shield mechanism for easier shield changeover. VAS also allows for a smoother shell in the temple area improving the helmet's ability to glide over objects without snagging protecting the rider against rapid deceleration or rotation.
EASY OPEN SHIELD A larger latch for easier operation - even with gloves - secures the shield while allowing for more intuitive shield operation.
IMPROVED ABILITY TO “GLANCE OFF” The VAS Shield System allows for a smoother overall shell improving the helmet's ability to glide over objects without snagging preventing rapid deceleration. [and perhaps most importantly preventing rotational energy to the neck.]
WASHABLE & GERM-FREE Removable interior updated with anti-microbial fabric for a germ-resistance and a neutral pH level close to the skin and you have the perfect lining to combat heat, sweat and grim for comfort over the long haul.
PERFECT COMFORT Arai’s Facial Contour System (FCS) cheek pads make putting on and taking off the helmet easier while increasing comfort even while talking. FCS cheek pads are sculpted to hold the helmet in place without adding pressure. Besides flowing air, feeling good and fitting properly, the liner’s improved support frame has been made more comfortable. Ear pockets include recesses for rider comfortable with speakers installed. The neck roll design wraps the neck reducing wind and ambient noise.
CUSTOM FIT Peel-away fit layers (5mm) in the cheek pads and temple area of the headliner allow micro-fitting for each rider. Additional cheek pad and headliner thicknesses are also available to further customize fit; even in ½ sizes for the perfect racing or touring fit.
ALL-WEATHER VISIBILITY SHIELD for all types of riding. Arai's VAS MAX-V shield accepts a Pinlock® MaxVision™ anti-fog insert (clear included in the package). Shield alternatives include the Pro Shade System with integrated sun visor as well as mirrored, tinted, dual pane and tear-off post equipped shields for racing.
ADVANCED VENTING Type-12 Diffusers (20mm longer + drawing in 19% more air) and an IC Duct-5 center vent (11% more air) feature 3 open/close positions, large access buttons for easier operation, and reduce noise and water intrusion. Air channels along the shell connect to side exhausts reducing fogging and ensuring rider comfort.
REMOVABLE CHIN CURTAIN accentuates the shell’s ovoid shape for improved aerodynamics while blocking turbulent air from entering the helmet and enhancing chin vent function drawing more fresh air to the mouth.
