DT-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.)
PERFECT COMFORT Facial Contour System (FCS) cheek pads make putting on and taking off a helmet easier while increasing comfort even while talking. FCS cheek pads are sculpted to hold the helmet in place without adding pressure. Peel-away layers (5mm) in the cheek pad and temple areas allow micro-fitting to each rider. Optional cheek pad and headliner thicknesses further customize the helmet fit. Ear pockets include recesses for rider comfort with speakers. Neckroll comfortably wraps the neck reducing wind and ambient noise.
WASHABLE & GERM-FREE Removable anti-microbial interior offers germ, odor and dirt resistance and a neutral pH level close to the skin offering the perfect lining to combat heat, sweat and grim for comfort over the long haul.
ADVANCED COOLING Dual Flow Ventilation System, Arai’s latest design, works well in many riding positions allowing the sturdy vents to flow cool air regardless of head angle. The front vent features both an intake and exhaust port. Cooling air enters the intake port while venturi effect draws warm air out the exhaust port. The Duct Flow Spoiler (rear) uses the low pressure from the left and right duct slots to further speed up exhaust flow. Side exhausts sculpted into the Hyper-Ridge result in added efficiency in airflow.
EASY-CHANGE SHIELD The 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. The VAS design 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 while improving aerodynamics.
EASY OPEN SHIELD A larger latch for easier operation - even with gloves - secures the shield while allowing for more intuitive shield operation.
COMPACT PERFORMANCE = RIDER COMFORT Arai's R75 Design Principles the Hyper Ridge along the lower edge of the shell increases shell strength. Arai´s proprietary, multi-density EPS liner is “tuned” to protect specific areas of the head to maximize performance. Shell shape & strength combined with the tuned EPS liner and material choices reduces the overall shell size and weight maximizing rider comfort and the helmet’s aerodynamic performance.
LIGHTER, STRONGER SHELL Born out of Arai's F-1 racing helmet technology, the DT-X features Arai's PB-cLc (Peripheral Belt - Complex Laminate Construction) utilizing proprietary materials and Arai’s exclusive “Z” Resin with an increased adhesive ability for a stronger, lighter shell with less resin. A peripheral belt of Arai's exclusive Super Fiber reinforces the leading edge of the eye port increasing shell strength while redirecting energy away from the opening at impact.
ALL-WEATHER VISIBILITY VAS MAX-V Shield provides all-weather visibility for all types of riding. Accepts optional Pinlock® Max Vision™ anti-fog insert. Shield options include Pro Shade System with integrated sun visor, mirrored, tinted, dual pane and tear-off post for racing.
OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES To further customize the DT-X consider shield options by function and color, chin curtains, breath guards, and a Pinlock Max Vision Anti-Fog Lens.
