Arai Corsair V Russell Helmet
love this helmet
Best helmet i tried. Vents are great on this and the graphics on my helmet is good in pictures but in person it looks amazing. Definitely worth every penny.

I go XXL head and this fits me perfectly. Very well constructed and ventilates well. Costs a lot but what the heck, right - it for your noggin so why scrimp...

Quiet. Feels very comfortable and light. No fatigue. Great style and perfect fit. (True to size). Make sure you use the Arai helmet size chart and measure the circumference of your head before you order.
The only downside is that I kept fogging up a bit till I got the adjustments right.
Revzilla shipping and traceability was superb and on time. Will definitely purchase again.

Very stylish and functional helmet
Let's start off by saying the quality of the paint and design of the helmet is first class. I wear a 7 1/4 in New Era fitted caps and the Medium fits like a glove. Great air flow throughout the lid and like the fact I have multiple options of how much air flow I want. I bought the Arai "Gold Mirror" shield to replace the original shield and it just looks fantastic.

Proven protection BUT..
Arai provides the required protection. Proven. What it doesnt provide is shell innovation. Sticking wings on helps a little. Buffeting at high speed and lots of wind noise. I dont like the visor system, even if its for safety, and if it wasnt for the modern graphics, it would look antiquated. the chin bar/visor is too close to my face. This seems to be a problem with many that dont have a flatter face. As I said, great in protection, aniquated everywhere else.

Worth the money
It was hard to convince myself to spend this much on a new helmet, but I'm really glad I did. It makes riding so much better! It's quieter that every other helmet I've used, but still provides a good amount of air flow. My neck stopped hurting after long rides, which makes me want to ride further more.
I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone serious about riding.

The best I've worn.
The light weight, comfortable fit and whisper quiet interior is well worth the price. They say you should pay for a helmet what you think your head is worth. At this level of protection and functionality you are paying what you think your riding and racing experience is worth. I could wear my Corsair V on a tricycle and have a blast!

Second Arai and revzilla has best price
This is my second Arai helmet. My first was the older model of this same helmet and I love it. It may be listed as the top end race helmet or what ever but its your head you're protecting.
These vent very well and in central Texas that is huge. They are very well made, the visor is very easy to change, and the padding doesn't break down. My old one is just over 5 years old and is just as tight and comfy as this new one out of the box.
Revzilla was almost 200$ cheaper than the local store and at least 50$ cheaper than all the other online stores. This is the third product I've bought from them and very satisfied with how fast they ship.
