The Corsair is Arai’s flagship model. An Arai helmet is not the product of compromise, of a "profit" point, or a board of directors. An Arai helmet is the product of obsession, an ongoing obsession to design and build the best helmets possible. This year Arai took the Corsair V Replica helmets to a new level. With several new features, you’ll see why the world’s best wear the Arai Corsair V Helmet.
Arai’s exclusive, adjustable new AirWing® is designed to greatly reduce drag, turbulence and buffeting resulting in more comfort and additional top-speed.
The new wider eyeport required a new, wider faceshield. Called the Series "I" faceshield, it is exclusive to the Corsair-V. The new shield fits even more flush against the shell than the previous Corsair’s.
Newly equipped with ‘’Air In Stabilizer’’, an additional air intake between the front and rear intake in the diffuser and large toggles. The Air-In ports help accelerate air out the back, increasing airflow without increasing the size of the holes in the shell.
The biggest difference between the newest generation of Arai’s Hyper-Ridge feature and its predecessors sticks right out at you: Whereas the previous ridge curved in, this one flares out. This results in a larger opening at the helmet’s bottom, making the helmet easier to get on and off.
Both cheek pads and the neck roll can be removed in seconds thanks to the advanced Emergency Release System. Rescue and medical workers can easily remove the newly designed removable neck roll and the cheek pads by just pulling the pad release tabs. This offers extra room within the helmet, making removal of the helmet much easier and minimizing the risk of additional injury.
The Corsair-V’s neckroll is now removable and replaceable, and adds an additional exhaust vent through its bottom via shallow channels in the EPS liner, adding yet another ventilation outlet for the removal of interior air.

Chad J: The best on the market! Great quality, design, and fit!... I'm never disappointed with Arai!!Aug 30, 2013
A shopper asked:I really like the Aria Corsair, but I won't be using the helmet for the track is there any downside to using it purely for street riding? What're the pros/cons? Should I instead go with the RX-Q or some other helmet?
Robert B:While the Corsair is a couple of ounces lighter than the RXQ, it's venting is designed to be more efficient at much higher speeds (triple digits) than the venting on the RXQ, and does so at the expense of being a bit louder as well. Unless there was a paint scheme in a Corsair that I couldn't live without (lol), if the helmet was being used primarily for street use, I'd probably buy the RXQ, use the couple of hundred bucks I'd save for an SAI Max Vision faceshield system, and enjoy the quieter ride knowing I'd never have to worry about fogging up.....Aug 15, 2013
Scott B:Low speed has me fogging sometimes. I've never been in a fog-able situation at the track. Some mornings at 30mph have me longing for the venting of my mid-level Scorpion, which is awesome for a fog-free lens as airflow is directed straight down onto and across the lens back. If fogging is a non-issue for you, this helmet is awesome at either the track or the street. I use it almost all the time for fair weather street riding and am only occasionally at the track. Visibility is great. I'd say the Arai's additional peripheral visibility is even more of a street advantage since that car over there is about to try to kill you.Aug 15, 2013
Chad J:The Corsair V is best helmet I have ever owned. It has an oval fit, so it really depends on the shape of your head to know if it will fit you. I use mine for everyday street riding. Pros: Quality, fit, lightweight, quiet, comfortable, style, paint, channels a lot of air, stays cool, wide view, and quick change visor feature. Cons: none. If you have an oval head, this is the best helmet you can buy and will not be disappointed. I own 4 of them and will not ride with anything else.Aug 16, 2013
Todd B:Use the Arai Corsair for the street, it's not just a track helmet. I have 3 Arai Corsair V's and they are the only helmets I'd use in the Texas heat. Close the vents and it's fine for winter riding (I ride when the temp's even get into the 30's. I prefer low 50's or higher, but that's no fault of the helmet). I use the Corsair for track, too. If you want airflow (or if you've never experienced good airflow), you owe it yourself to get the Arai Corsair.Aug 15, 2013
Andy C:I love my Corsair, but as you will read that it can be considered a "loud" helmet for the road. Personally, the helmet offers up so many other features that I get past it, but others cannot. The helmet is designed to be be in the tuck, so take that in to consideration as well. I prob didn't help much, but you are certainly going to get a bit more noise inside this helmet.Aug 15, 2013
Alexi B:I had the RX-Q and bought the Corsair V for the track, I ended up using the Corsair exclusively. It's a phenomenal helmet. The only con is that there is slightly more wind noise but not enough to be a deal breaker by any stretch.
Brandon S:I have two corsair v helmets. I use them both strictly on the street. The only con is the price. The helmet is pretty light with decent ventilation. The graphics are unmatched. The question would be fit. Each Arai model has slightly different shape. Aug 15, 2013
Donnie A:In my opinion the Corsair V Fiction is a great all around helmet. Good on both the road and street. Never hit the track with it. The air flow around the helmet works best in the tuck. Fits me perfect and the finish can't be beat.Aug 15, 2013
Michael G:I actually use the helmet for both. That being said you will not be disappointed either way. The helmet preformed very well on the street. My only downside was it got too much airflow for the cold months.Aug 15, 2013
Stefan S:I own several Corsairs. Primarily street bikes, when I got a cruiser I was a little disappointed with the wind noise. There is no question it has been designed for sport bikes, I found that if I tilted my head back down as if I were on a sport bike then there was a significant decrease in wind noise an an increase in stability. The adjustable wing does make a difference in the stability but not the noise. One major plus though with the Corsair is the choice of graphic designs. I still have waited on purchasing an RX-Q only because of the lack of designs available. The light weight of the Corsair will spoil you and that has prevented me from getting a Schuberth or other more cruiser oriented or quieter design. That all said, I would purchase an RX-Q now IF they would make a graphic a really liked or made it with the Russel or another I like. Pros: weight, design, quality, comfort. Cons: Price, noise if not on sport bike, lack of graphic choicesAug 15, 2013
Michael S:I have been wearing the Arai Corsair V helmet for about a year, strictly street riding. It is the most comfortable helmet I have used to date, light weight with nice ventilation and great protection. I particularly like the wide peripheral view. No downside in my experience. You cannot go wrong with this helmet.Aug 29, 2013
Allen C asked:Hello, I am seriously considering buying this helmet, Arai Corsair V, but since it is a expensive investment I want to be sure that it can handle 1 feature that I want. Being that the Corsair V is more of a track helmet, would I still be able to install my Sena SMH10-11 Bluetooth mic(boom/universal) and earphones into/onto the helmet? Would it work fine with no downsides? Is there enough room in the helmet around the ears for me to fit the earphones or the mic? Or would I have to modify the inside of the helmet, ex. removing cheek pads, etc. in order to make the Bluetooth system fit in with the helmet? Thanks!Mar 7, 2014
Michael G:I have the Sena installed on mine with no problem in function at all except some added wind noise to the left side. I think it's due to such good arodynamics of the helmet and adding the Sena off the side. You will not be disappointed by this helmet. It delivers in every promise!Mar 7, 2014
Thank you for the input! Unfortunately, I was not able to try on a Corsair V at local cycle shops, they never carry them. I was however able to try on a size Medium and Large for the RX-Q. Medium seemed to fit very well, nice and snug. Should I go with Medium for the Corsair V? Or maybe move up 1 size because the Corsair V will be just a tad bit tighter?
