Arai Corsair X Full
Face Motorcycle Helmet
VAS Shield Mechanism
The SAI shield on the Corsair-V
has only a single axis pivot point but the Corsair-X has the new VAS mechanism
with a variable axis incorporating a moving pivot point. By combining the pin
trajectory, which is based on an imaginary axis, with the two trajectories of
the double pivot point slot, the shield opens and closes smoothly even with
the much lower shield mount position.
A dual-function lever releases
both the side cover / pod and shield pin for quick and simple shield removal.
Being able to see the shield mechanism allows for easier shield changes.
The VAS latch captures and
securely holds the shield closed to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition
to the de-mist function, the larger latch allows for intuitive and seamless
Diffuser Type 12
New Type 12 diffusers are
20mm longer and take in 19% more air than the previous design. In addition,
the new air intake vents have three positions and are designed to help provide
improved sealing which decreases road noise and water intrusion.
VAS MAX-V (BV) Shield
VAS Max Vision shield is
standard to provide better visibility in all seasons and for all types of riding.
A clear Pinlock insert is standard with the Corsair-X.
The new chin curtain accentuates
the egg-shaped form of the outer shell. In addition, it blocks the intrusion
of turbulent air from the underside of the helmet and increases negative pressure
to enhance the function of the chin vent by drawing more air from the mouth
The VAS pivot cover is now
smaller and lower than the previous design, yielding an average of 24mm more
area above the cover. The shell is now smoother along the Snell test line in
the temple area, thus increasing the helmet's ability to glance off objects
during an impact.
Compared with the shell
of the Corsair-V, the smooth area around the temple is increased by an average
of 24mm on the new VAS model. Having a rounder, smoother shell over a larger
area increases the ability of a helmet to glance off objects more easily.
Created from super fiber
and special synthetic fibers, and assembled by Arai experts, the shell provides
both superb tensile strength and flexibility characteristics. Like the metal
bands used to hold a wooden barrel together, a variety of carefully placed materials,
combined with newly developed resins result in strong shells with less weight.
The fully removable interior
comfort liner has been improved and updated with Eco-Pure material, which helps
maintain a neutral pH level close to the skin. In addition, the new, soft frame
material is more comfortable and features removable temple padding and brand
new removable/replaceable crown pad to allow for a customized fit.
The new IC Duct-5 provides
11% more air flow than the previous Delta Duct 5. The new, bigger switch features
three positions, is easier to open, and limits water intrusion when fully closed.
